Limitless Electronics, an African based electronics company which successfully released Mind tablet across western and southern Africa a year ago, is now planning to launch its products in India and 190 other countries by March. The company plans include not just tablets but all types of high-end luxury devices and electronics.
Though Limitless has not disclosed the tablets or smartphones scheduled to be launched in India, Tony Smith, chief executive officer of Limitless in a written reply to The Mobile Indian said that the pre-orders through the Limitless Electronics’ online store will begin on February 15.
Africa is emerging as the second largest manufacturing continent after Asia and companies like Limitless are taking benefit of this new trend. The newest product line-up at Limitless includes the Re|act and Fleet brands of smartphones, tablets and smart TVs.
Tony Smith said “Re|act phones and tablets have high-end finishes and are ideally suited to fit in purses and suit pockets. They are lightweight in design yet a heavyweight in technological innovation. Each phone and tablet is powerful enough to meet any and all work needs, from emails to documents, presentations, and beyond. Re|act phones, tablets, and TVs are also designed for fun and typically include choice entertainment apps such as Grooveshark and Crackles.”
He added, “The Fleet brand devices are designed for advanced durability to provide long lasting and reliable performance in all types of conditions. Many Fleet devices are outfitted with technology and hardware that offer military-grade protection against exposure to water, wind, dust, shock, and more”.
Limitless recently did a unique launch where customers had the opportunity to custom-select both their hardware components and the operating systems to run on the hardware. This unique option counters the current market practice of devices virtually becoming synonymous with the operating systems they run.
It is expected that this option will be available to Indian consumer as well and they will get to choose between operating systems like Ubuntu and Android and may be Firefox OS too.
