Pakistan Army debuts in the handheld market

Pakistan Army debuts in the handheld market

February 7, 2012

Islamabad – (Express Tribune – Adding from ProPakistani) : Pakistan Army is reportedly in process of developing a handheld tablet, a market dominated by the likes of Apple, Amazon and Samsung, reported Express Tribune the other day.

A rather surprising report said that the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) Kamra has started up a new commercial venture with a Chinese company to manufacture smart tablets to strengthen national economy.

It is said that venture may produce several products starting with a computing tablet, a notebook and an eBook reader.

Details suggest that products are initially being marketed in Rawalpindi, but modalities needed to be finalized so it could expand to other cities including Lahore and Karachi.

The competitively priced products, he said, have several benefits because they are being manufactured in Kamra.

“It comes with a joint one-year warranty of PAC and Innavtek. Because PAC is producing it, it will ensure quality. We will also provide backup support,” the official said an official.

It is interesting to note here that cpmc.pk, the website for the venture, is currently down for exceeding bandwidth.

We are awaiting response from their sales team on pricing and specification; hence expect more details here soon.

Update:

According to ProPakistani.pk  there are two devices (a tablet and e-reader) available for sale. Notebook will be made available in March 2012. Keep reading for more details:

    Its a pity that Army is focusing on items which can be considered as luxury. They should rather devote their services in building roads/ bridges and dams (and I think a lot more is needed than FWO) I think if they opt for making such items, then they should finance their expenses from these, rather than the defense budget of the country, which is already in deficit.

  • Anasiftikhar

    great .our country really need this type of ventures.
