Niche tablet PC distributor, Tegatech, has secured a deal to supply the range of OQO 02 ultra mobile PC (UMPC) devices to the local market.
Tegatech principal, Hugo Ortega, said it was approached by the US-based vendor.
"We have been dealing in the UMPC space for the past 12 months and that has created a lot of global attention for us," he said. "It is a line that we are starting to build up a conglomerate of devices."
OQO's flagship 5-inch model features a 1.5GHz processor, 60GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM. Similar to a traditional tablet, it is available with a pen and takes handwritten notes.
"It is the smallest device that we have in our range and it comes with a slide down keyboard. It is also currently the world's smallest Vista machine," Ortega said.
It would consider bundling the device with a docking station, he said.
Ortega anticipated the range would significantly increase company revenues.
"The introduction of UMPC gave us about a 60 per cent revenue boost, so by adding another product it is going to allow us to keep that up," he said.
Resellers suited to the OQO product were those with a corporate, government and vertical focus, Ortega said.
"We have most success with people working in government agencies, hospitals, financial institutions and the like," he said. "At the moment, we are just trying to garner interest for it and let resellers know that they can start to offer the products."
Tegatech also carries UMPC devices from Samsung, Asus and eo.
