Armenia to Launch Smartphone in 2014

Armenia will launch its own tablet computer and smartphone next year, the government press service said Friday, on the heels of the launch of Russia's first smartphone earlier this week.

Prototypes of the devices were presented at a Friday meeting of the country's Industrial Council, chaired by Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan.

Sargsyan said an Armenian-American joint venture — Technology and Science Dynamics Inc/Armtab Technologies — would start producing the Armtab tablet and Armphone mobile in early 2014.

The company's director, Vahan Shakaryan, said it had already developed test models of the tablet — running on an Android platform with 3G and Wi-Fi capability with screen sizes of 7.85, 9, 9.7 and 10.1 inches — as well as a sample of the smartphone.
