ArmTab as object of envy: Baku to launch own tablet production

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijani computer manufacturer KUR will launch production of tablet computers in near future, Azeri media said citing the Ministry for Communications and Information Technologies.

In this context, KUR Director General Rizvan Osmanov noted a certain decline in PC market of Azerbaijan due to new consumer priorities which lie in the sector of tablet computers.

According to Osmanov, competing with international brand names will be a difficult task. "However, KUR can implement a new internet project for sale of tablet computers," he said.

Seems like the thought of Armenian-made tablets to be released in May keeps Baku awake at night.

Armenia is planning the launch production of locally made smartphones and tablets.

The new Android-based devices - ArmPhone and ArmTab - were developed by an Armenian-American joint venture, Technology and Science Dynamics Inc/Armtab Technologies Company. As the venture chief Vahan Shakaryan stated, trial versions of the 3D WiFi tablets with 7,85; 9, 97 and 10,1inch displays have been assembled in line with international standards, yet to be offered at much lower prices (possible retailer price $180.)

The design and software for the devices will be managed in Armenia while the assembly will be implemented in the U.S. and Hong Kong.
