On April 1, The Hindu, one of India’s oldest newspapers, flipped a switch and revealed a brand new mobile site (http://m.thehindu.com) for its readers, powered by MobStac technology. Being avid fans of quality journalism as well as consumers of news on the go, this is a double delight for the MobStac team. We are indeed honoured to be working with The Hindu and helping it reach out to its vast global readership on mobile devices.
For the MobStac team, this is also a significant milestone because this is a validation of our technology and the grueling hours we have put in to make it best-of-class.
Readers seem to be ecstatic about the new changes that have come their way. Here is a sample of the feedback that readers shared with The Hindu:

twitter and Facebook networks, Hindu is one true example of being
‘class apart’ even though its published and based out of India, a
country still laggard in technology adoption. Keep up the great work.
