Mexico Innovates with a More Powerful Tablet than its Competitors

17 January 2011 9 Comments

In the growing and euphoric market of tablets devices, in which the best example is the Apple iPad; the Slate, of the Mexican Company Meebox, is making its path. We give special attention to this tablet, since its design, concept and manufacturing are of Mexican origin and distinguishes itself by its extraordinary characteristics. The Slate, designed and produced in Guadalajara, is a powerful alternative for the growing market to its closest and more famous competitors, including Apple’s iPad, Blackberry’s Playbook and Samsung’s Galaxy.

Meebox, a Mexican company with offices also in Dallas, Texas, was founded by entrepreneur Carlos Koch de Santiago, a pioneer in the electronics industry. According to him, the creator of the Slate, its product is more powerful than the iPad for its processing capacity ” It is a portable solution based on the Intel Atom processor family and we are very pleased to have the same computing power that of a laptop”. This product also has the advantage of multitasking, plus it is fully compatible with Flash, unlike Apple’s iPad. The Mexican tablet is based on the Windows 7 platform, contrary to the iPad or Blacberry’s Playbook that develop their own software, or Samsung’s Galaxy tablet that runs on Android.

During its presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the innovative Mexican product received ninety purchase orders in the first eight hours after its release, which portends a major success.

But that’s not all for Meebox. In addition to Slate, the company has introduced other advanced products that have been welcomed into the market, such as the X9 DigitalRise, or touch screen computers, like their computers Meebox Touch and Meebox Touch Pro. With a global vision, the company excels internationally to present a product that competes with companies recognized for their innovation worldwide, such as the cases of Apple, Samsung and Blackberry.

Gradually, Mexico has taken the risk of moving away from commodity export model. This has allowed the country to come forth as an important player in various industries and is gaining ground in innovation to create products of the highest quality and technology worldwide, as are also the examples of the automotive and aeronautics industries.

Mexico has an enormous potential to compete at international level not only in technology and innovation issues but in many areas that have probably not yet been studied. It’s time for Mexicans to acknowledge the creativity and ingenuity that distinguishes them, and detonate furthermore its contribution to developing innovative products for Mexico and the rest of the world.

    Como Mexicano me da mucho orgullo ver que esta tecnología está siendo desarrollada por nuestra gente. Ahora falta que alguien le de reconocimiento en el mercado consumidor. AT&T? Verizon? Sprint? T-Mobile? La clave de éxito para Meebox es marketing, marketing & more marketing!!! Felicidades.

    It’s great to hear about the innovation coming out of Mexico in the electronics field! I’ve referenced this article in my blog to inspire entrepreneurs in Mexico. Do you think the Slate has a chance against such heavyweight competitors established in the tablet market?

    Las tablets cada vez se introducen más su día a día, y es que es muy cómodo poder comprobar el correo o las películas de esa actriz que tanto le gustó de la tele, buscar una receta mientras está en la cocina, chatear o hacer una video llamada desde la comodidad del sofá o la terraza, jugar a juegos e incluso educar a los peques mientras juegan… ¿Las posibilidades son infinitas, no creen?

    Desde http://www.cobykyros.mx le ofrecemos ofertas muy competitivas que no podrá resistirse. Entra a nuestra página y podrá comprobarlo.

    Un saludo.
