Zinox Technologies Ltd., has unveiled its future visions roadmap under which the company is set to roll out the first set of new products designed in partnership with foreign tech firms â€“ Intel Corp., Ashour Corporation, Tecsync Technology Co. Ltd. and Microsoft.
Chairman, Zinox Group, Mr. Leo Stan Ekeh, said at the even in Lagos recently that the vision is an ambitious project 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, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Healthy Living, Core ICT, Internet of Things, Medicine, FMCG, Entertainment and Education, among others.
According to Ekeh â€œAs the world is shrinking at an unprecedented pace as a result of the 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.
â€œWith a strong, young research and development team with an average age of 28 except me, 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.â€
Among the first set of exciting products to be launched under the Zinox Future Visions is the GTX laptop: the worldâ€™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 GTX laptop 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 hoursâ€™ 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.
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, Ekeh said.
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. Available in red, blue and fuchsia colours, the Wi-Fi enabled Kids Legacy Tab assures 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 Zinoxâ€™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.
The new products with global certifications are designed in the companyâ€™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.
â€œWe have designed a number of new technology products that will meet the needs of a dynamic audience. These include new gadgets for tech-savvy youths and business executives as well as tablets for kids. 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.
â€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,â€ he said.
