    [h=2]Kaboo: Is this the first Kenyan Designed Tablet Computer?[/h] Posted In Gizmos - By robertalai On Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 With 7 Comments

    I have just been sent some info about a “Kenyan Tablet Computer” and I thought, wow!! So I tried to get more info about the tablet including specs and everything and I am further impressed. So two Kenyans, Kelvin Jayanoris and Nicole Wambere, who are the brains behind Noris Technologies sat together more than one year ago and decided to do a tablet computer. So with the funding of their parents to the tune of Ksh 1.5 Million, the young man and woman have come up with Noris Kaboo tablet computer.
    The Kaboo tabled has been designed by Noris technologies in collaboration with some Chinese partners which makes it an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) tablet. ODM is a company which designs and manufactures a product which is specified and eventually branded by another firm for sale. So Noris specified what they wanted and since they did not have the technical expertise, they involved the Chinese company to give the Technical input.
    Specs:

    • CPU: VIA WM8650 (800MHz 300MHz DSP)
    • Operating System: Android 2.2
    • Screen: 7-inch resistive touch screen
    • Storage: 256MB DDR2 RAM and 2GB internal storage
    • 3G : Supports external 3G (USB 3G) Modem
    • Card Reader: Supports High-speed Micro-SD card (maximum: 32GB)
    • Sound: Built-in speaker, Built-in micphone
    • Camera: 0.3M Pixels Web Camera
    • Orientation Sensor Automatic steering display screen
    • Supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
    • Supports adobe flash 10.1
    • High-sensitivity G-sensor embedded
    The tablet runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo) though Noris technologies had to modify it since the stock froyo from Google could not come out well on the tablet. The feel will be a bit different. Noris technologies say they have already sold around 440 pieces and they have been doing this through newspaper adverts. One was in the papers last week.

    Kelvin says that the tablet should be selling for as low as Ksh 12,000 but since they produce low quantity, it has affected the pricing. I must say that it is impressive even if it was an OEM device. The fact that the tablet looks and feels good makes me happy. I have my copy and I am checking it out after which I will write a detailed analysi

    Vyovyote FF, what matters is whose initiative was it? Wao wamekuja na wazo, wakali-refine kwa namna walivyoweza ila wakawa hawana uwezo wa kufanya prod kwao Kenya katika namna ambayo haitaathiri bei, the answer ikawa ni China. Keeping in mind kwamba hata iPad is developed in USA but made in China -- na sababu is the same: COSTS.

    Wazo lipi jipya hapo?

    Walichofanya ni kutengezesha tablet kwa jina lao, kipya ni jina tu hapo? ni nini zaidi?

    Watu wanapoonda! inaonesha ufahamu ni mdogo kuhusu ubunifu wa electronics na vifaa mbalimbali. Jaribuni kufanya research kidogo bana, siyo kuropoka tu!!!!....Hawa jamaa wana mawazo mazuri! Na wanaoponda hapa ukute hajawahi kufungua hata hiyo desktop anayotumia, la angeshaona na kuelewa mambo yanaendaje. Jaribu kuchunguza computer yako, angalia brand, model imetengezwa wapi, then fungua ndani uchunguze baadhi ya vifaa vimetengenezwa wapi, you will be suprised!

    Bifu la nini?Nawafahamu vizuri sana inapokuja issue ya 'Glorification of Kenya'.Article imesema clearly kabisa kwamba walituma specifications,si kwamba wali-designs.Clearly huwezi kusema walidesign au ku-invent.Hii ni hype tu!

    Acheni kutoana mimamcho, habari yenyewe inajieleza vizuri tu au ligha nayo ni tatizo?....
    ..."So Noris specified what they wanted and since they did not have the technical expertise, they involved the Chinese company to give the Technical input."...

    Siku hizi kariakooo zimejaa simu na bidhaa nyingi za kutoka kichina kuanzia nguo mpaka vifaa vya electroniki kwa sababu wachina wanauwezo wa kukutengenezea kitu chochote unachotaka ilimradi uwape specifications. Cha msingi je ndugu zetu wana-patent gani na ngapi kwenye hiki kifaa au wamefanya LEGO...

    Kunatofauti kubwa sana kati ya Apple na kampuni hii ya ndugu zetu kwakuwa wao wamesema hawana technical expertise (wao ni wafanya biashara tu) wakati Apple wana-technical expertise isipokuwa wana-outsource manufacturing kwa kampuni za kichina kwa sababu ya cheap labour tu.

    Kwa kifupi ni kwamba ni vigumu kukaa mwaka mmoja tu na kufanikiwa kutengeneza product kama iPad wakati hauna technical expertise yeyote. Especially kama wewe ni start-up.

    Kampuni kama Apple au Samsung wana Patents nyingi sana kwenye hizo tablet computer zao, kumbuka siku hizi Patents huwa hazipatikani hivihivi mpaka uthibitishe madai yako, ndio maana hayo makampuni yameajiri wafanya kazi wengi (Mostly Engineers) wanaofanya Research and Development (R&D) kampasi zao ni kama vyuo vikuu vya ufundi....
