Tegatech picks up Samsung Q1
- 11 October, 2006 13:51
In an effort to increase its mobile PC presence, boutique distributor, Tegatech, has scored three distribution deals with Samsung, Fujitsu and Korean-based Raon Digital.
The Sydney-based company will focus on Samsung's Q1 Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) product and Fujitsu's range of tablet PCs. It will also offer Raon's Vega range. The mini handheld PC runs on Microsoft Windows XP Home edition.
Tegatech principal, Hugo Ortega, said Samsung had picked Tegatech through its collaboration with Microsoft. The Q1 is part of Microsoft's Origami project, which is focused on the development of offering smaller, lightweight and low-cost PCs to the market.
Ortega said the Q1 would not conflict with its existing UMPC product range because each offered different features and benefits. He was interested in pointing the Q1 at the education, government and finance sectors and was searching for more resellers in those verticals. Samsung acknowledged the prospective distribution deal but refused to comment on its plans.
