Omatek last week presented new ranges of smart books to help bring the e-education to fruition in Nigeria. The new products which come in 8 and 10 inches models are an advancement to the old version of the products which the company pioneered last year. The new model products come in 60gb hard disk space & 512mb and 1gb RAM, respectively. The beauty of the Omatek 8 and 10 inches smartbooks is that the products come with connectivity making it easier for users to work online anywhere. Introducing the products to media men recently, Omatek boss, Mrs Florence Seriki said that having observed the difficulties people go through for connection and how lack of connection has turned many computers into mere log of woods, she decided to discuss with the country's second National operator, Globacom to have its wireless Internet package run on the new products. What this means is that buying the omatek smartbooks is buying a computer with already made Internet connection.
The initiative she said, has attracted several commendations from those that have experienced the products. Reliving how the idea came, Seriki said it was not long after Prof Nicolas Negroponte of the famous US$100 par laptop introduced that initiative that she keyed on it to boost the e-education platform in Nigeria.
