Oct 07, – The New Delhi-based world’s No. 1 original equipment manufacturer for tablet PCs has once again underlined its leadership in the region’s tablet industry by launching the XPad Freedom, the world’s first high-speed quad-core tablet with 3G calling facility and high data speed.

hromedia - World’s most advanced 3G tablet from SimmtronicsFeaturing a quad-core 1.2GHz processor and 4.2.2 Android Jelly Bean operating system, the ultra-slim and light tablet features advanced high-definition graphics on its 7.85-inch display screen. The new product sets the benchmark in future tablet technology through 2G and 3G calling facility with dual sim-card and high-definition In-Plane Switching Retina display feature.

“XPad Freedom is now the most highly-advanced tablet ever to be launched in the Middle East. We launch this product at Gitex Shopper and will introduce in other markets after the event,” Indrajit Sabharwal, managing director of Simmtronics, told Khaleej Times on the sidelines of region’s premier electronics show.

The tablet also empowers end-users with several other technological advances — an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera, Bluetooth, HDMI connectivity, high-definition graphics and longer lasting battery power. “We are confident to sell about 5,000 units of XPad Freedom this month,” he said.

Sabharwal said that Simmtronics is keen to capitalise its leadership position in the mid-price tablet segment. He said the affordable tablet category would continue to drive the consumer demand in emerging markets such as the Middle East and Africa.

“The Mena region is an important market for Simmtronics and through products such as XPad Freedom, we will continue to boost our range with solutions that address the needs of all tablet users.”

In reply to a question, he said the Middle East is the second-biggest market for Simmtronics after India.

“We generate about one-third of our business from Middle East markets and this region is very important for us,” he said, adding that the company sells 0.6 million tablets annually in the region and it has also established one support centre in Dubai to serve Middle East customers.

To a question, he said Simmtronics is exploring new international markets for sustainable growth in coming years.

About the outlook for wearable gadgets, he said it is highly unlikely that gadgets like the smart watch will find a place in market because of its small size and multi-functions. However, he said the outlook for smartphones is promising and Simmtronics is focusing this growing segment to get its due market share.

“We have launched two smartphones [Q1 and M1] at Gitex Shopper and both models have generated good demand,” he said, adding that the company is expecting a 200 per cent sales growth during Gitex Shopper this year.

He said the company is going to launch another tablet during Gitex Technology Week. “We will launch the X723 after Gitex Shopper at Technology Week. We have launched 12 tablets so far including three this year,” he said.

“Our latest tablet showcases the strengths of Simmtronics’ own manufacturing and R&D facilities while setting the benchmark in future tablet technologies. It also reinforces our position as the world’s No. 1 original equipment maker for tablets,” Sabharwal said.

The XPad Freedom is priced at Dh999 and is aimed at a growing market segment that seeks advanced IT solutions at affordable cost. It is distributed across the UAE by Simmtronics’ exclusive UAE distributor, Jumbo Electronics, and is available across all retail outlets and consumer electronics stores in the country.

During Gitex Shopper, Simmtronics is offering the XPad Freedom bundled with its advanced smartphone M1 for Dh1,299 at outlets of Jackys, Emax, Jumbo and Crazy Deals.
