VMK a Congolese tech company has started to build the buzz for their impeding Android tablet today. The company has sent out some photos (see below) to web-based news agencies. In the photos you won’t see the front of the tablet but you will get some nice looks at the side and the back of the tablet.
In a message to tech news website Engadget VMK’s CEO announced the front of the tablet will remain a highly guarded secret until his company con secure patents for the designs. On the side of the tablet VMK proudly announces that their tablet was ‘Designed and Engineered In Congo’.
As to the type of Android that VMK will use for their new tablet, they have announced today that Google’s Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread operating system will be used for the tablet, kind of like the new 7-inch HTC Flyer is offering –VMK doesn’t say for sure but I believe their tablet has a 7-inch touchscreen.
From the photos it’s clear that the tablet will be offered with some ports. A microSD card slot, a USB port, and a headphone jack are all the ports visible from the released photos.
VMK plans on making their tablet available to their fellow countrymen as well as others this September. VMK is staying tight-lipped about their pricing plans for the tablet at the moment, pricing will be key for the success of this tablet in Congo and the African market in general.
Here are the photos released by VMK for their tablet so far:
