When you play chess, your brain becomes very sharp as you have to move your pawns and bishops very carefully and foresee the consequences of your movement. This trait of swiftness and sharpness has helped 16 year old – Sareddy Chiman Prakash, a chess player based in Hyderabad, who does not have any formal education, and his teen mate – Nikhil, develop a tablet PC with features, which can give top brands a run for their money.
Amidst much fanfare, Andhra Pradesh Information Technology and Communications Minister, Ponnala Lakshmaiah launched the “High End” Ave Tablet at Hyderabad, which is being offered for Rs. 12,999/-
Prakash does not have any formal education but developed keen interest in IT and game development. He is Executive Director of Sareddy Technologies Limited, a company owned by Prakash’s father, that is registered in the United Kingdom. The company develops mobile games also. The Ave tablet will be manufactured by Sareddy Technologies. They will procure the boards and other stuff from China and assembling will be done in UK.
“We are planning to sell 1,000 tablets in the first month. We are in talks with Reliance Digital and Bajaj Capital for offering financial schemes for students and others”, Prakash Reddy said.
The Ave tablet will have the following features:
- Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS
- 7″ inch display
- Compatibility zoom mode
- Supports Micro SD cards of up to 32 GB
- Built-in memory of 8 GB
- Weighs just 360 grams
If this tablet becomes successful then more and more entrepreneurs can have a look at this lucrative and exploding business to build tablets as the coming time will give lot of opportunities to such types of economical tablets. If an online retailer like Amazon can build Kindle Tablet, which has become very popular in US and they are inundated with online orders, since its launch and another e-book seller has come out with Nook tablet then any smart person can build the tablet as the source of boards and other material is available in China and you should have the funds to purchase them in bulk and assembly space.
Look easy. May be worth the try if somebody is having surplus funds. Good scope! 😉
