December 12 2012: Bangalore based product & solutions company EAFT Technologies, has launched two new tablets in its Destiny line which come pre-embedded with an application that allows fans of WorldSpace music to download their favourite music and listen to it when they choose.
WorldSpace was the iconic satellite based multi-genre music service which had its global debut in India a decade ago – but ended its service in India two years ago after the parent company folded.
Now for the first time anywhere, WorldSpace would be made available as a service on smart devices like tablets.
