Both Apple and Samsung have established themselves as leading tablet manufacturers, but others are also making their way to cater to their own countries customer with affordable prices and better suitability. India has pioneered to locally manufacture Akaash, which is considered to be the world’s cheapest tablet. Recently, Pakistan has also planned to develop a similar product with tablet and digital notebooks to be the first in line to be manufactured.
The Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) Kamra in collaboration with the Chinese company Innavtek have planned on commercially introducing these electronics in Pakistan. The first three products produced by PAC are a computing tablet, a notebook and an eBook reader. The responsibility to manufacture these products lies with PAC, whereas Innavtek will be looking after marketing and promotion. As of now, the products are available in Rawalpindi, but after some finalization they will be introduced in Lahore and Karachi too.
This is not just good news for Pakistani technology, but also for Pakistani tech enthusiasts who are into using gadgets for personal or professional purposes. These products come with a joint one-year warranty of PAC and Innavtek and there will also be a backup support as mentioned by the official from PAC. There are further plans to train professionals into manufacturing these products both in China and Pakistan soon, if the results are successful. It is about time each Pakistani gets a tablet and a notebook in his and her hands and not just a mobile phone.
