The Origin Of Digit Magazine

India is a developing country and the IT sector is one which is taking our country to a completely new era. From no telephones, we have now reached a stage where people from all walks of life have mobile phones. All manual gadgets are on their way out and new electronic goods are making their way into our homes.
Some people are tech savvy and change their electronic goods with ease but the others have doubts and look for reassurance. This is where information technology magazines come in. These magazines are a guide for prospective buyers.
Digit has a tag line which says… Your Technology Navigator. The magazine, which is published by Jasubhai Digital Media Private Ltd., concentrates on all sorts of technological gadgets. They review these gadgets, conduct polls and then give you a final outlook of the product.
Digit, earlier was published as the CHIP magazine. This was done by the Jasubhai group in collaboration with the Vogel-Veriag Group in Germany. They were the highest selling IT magazine group in India. Later, due to some differences between the companies, Jasubhai decided to part ways. Soon they launched their own IT magazine in two languages. The magazines were Digit in English and Smart Computing in Hindi. Both the magazines were launched in June 2001.
Now, Digit magazine has a massive circulation which is about to displace PC Quest as the second largest selling Indian IT magazine. In 2003, NRS declared that with a circulation of 395000, Digit had crossed the sales of PC Quest.
Talking about competition Digit has only two serious contenders: The Living Digital and PC Quest. Year after year, the magazine has been gaining the market share regularly. They started with a rotation of 120000 and now have a rotation, which has grown sizably.
The magazine is published by Maulik Jasubhai. Deepak Ajwani is the editor. This English IT magazine is published in India and is now placed as the third largest selling IT magazine in the country. They have a website www.thinkdigit.com too.
