ZINOX Technologies has drawn notable foreign partners, including Intel Corp., Ashour, Tecsync Technology and Microsoft into the Nigerian mobile market, lining up an array of innovative devices that will hit the market soon. The devices according to the company will reflect its new vision and focus to further serve the Nigerian market with latest technologies of international standard.
Unveiling what it called Future Visions roadmap, in Lagos under which the company is set to roll out the first set of new products designed in partnership with the foreign tech firms, the company said the ambitious project was underpinned by Research and Development that will see the various companies in the Zinox Group diversify into new business areas with products in critical emerging sectors including Robotics, AI, Healthy Living, Core ICT, Internet of Things, Medicine, FMCG, Entertainment and Education, among others.
Chairman of the company, Leo Stan Ekeh, said: “As the world is shrinking at an unprecedented pace due to impacts of new technologies, new audiences are emerging with a demand to consume new products. The Zinox Future Visions mandate, therefore, is to anticipate where the world is headed and be ready with the right products and solutions. With a strong, young Research and Devel-opment team with an average age of 28 except myself, the Group has the requisite human capital/resources, financial muscle, carrying capacity, industry-knowledge, street-smartness with credible global partnerships to further diversify into hitherto-uncharted territories and take dominance of these areas.”
Customer dynamism: Among the first set of exciting products to be launched under the Zinox Future Visions is theGTX laptop: the world’s smallest laptop and the Kids Legacy Tab, a device targeted at kids between the ages of 3 to 13 who would have the critical foundation to lead in their chosen fields in future.
Built to meet the computing needs of a dynamic audience, the ultra-slim GTXlaptop is a powerful tool. The device runs on Intel Cherry Trail OS with 1.9GHz computing power and a durable 10,000mAh battery which offers users up to 10 hours’ average use. Boasting a 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage expandable to 120GB, the 14-inch GTX weighs a paltry 1.5kg thus making it a light-weight companion for work, travel and leisure.
Tech children: For the Kids Legacy Tab, parents and care-givers will find a fitting device with which to introduce their children to technology and new vistas of learning. In addition to a Device Manager to enable parents monitor content, the tablet is pre-loaded with over 50 Educational and Fun Games and rated as knowledge luxury platform for kids.
They are available in red, blue and Fuchsia colours, the Wi-Fi enabled Kids Legacy Tabassures 1.2GHz computing power and extended use with a 2500mAh battery. Both products will complement the new 8-inch Zpad and will see an expansion of the scope of offerings in Zinox’s mobile devices products suite. The Zpad which offers high speed voice and data services has been widely accepted in the market, a factor that is expected to weigh in favour of the new devices being rolled out.
Surge protectors: The new products with global certifications are designed in the company’s long-standing tradition of durability, equipped with surge protectors in consideration of the peculiar power challenges on the continent and are expected to hit the market this August.
Ekeh describes the partnership with the foreign firms on the new products as a fitting pointer to the commitment to deliver genuine quality products that can rival any in the world.
Tech savvy youths: “We have designed a number of new technology products that will meet the needs of a dynamic audience. These includes new gadgets for tech-savvy youths and business executives as well as tablets for children.”
It is important to understand that our young kids are precocious and more exposed these days. Also, technology is moving at a very rapid pace so we need to provide tailor-made products for this emerging generation of kids as well.
“By partnering with Intel, Ashour Corporation, Tecsync Technology and Microsoft on the roll-out of these new products, we have once again restated our commitment to world-class quality in line with our time-honoured tradition of reliability as these tech firms are renowned world-wide for their research-focused approach to product development and production,” he said.
