Wipro and HCL are the original hardware makers. There was also one PCL (Pertech Computers) but guess HCL made it a mission to finish that off and suceeded. In 90s there was one dabba which went as HCL busybee. But guess HCL tied up with HP and guess that led to downfall of HCL as regards hardware. Came to know about current state of Wipro from you. BTW, long before it got into Dabba and Cybercoolie business Wipro was into consumer products. It still is. I remember buying Wipro Diapers over a decade back.

Cant help put that the guy who put them in business was George Fernandes. In 77-78 along with Coke, he also drove away IBM. Thats when came HCL and Wipro to fill the gap (like Thums up and Campa cola came up to replace Coke).
