As Mustek officially launched its new Mecer Xpress slate PC, aimed at the consumer and business markets, all eyes are now on its Nigerian brand Zinox to follow suit and present its own Zinox (Mecer) tablet soon.
According to Mustek, which is a leading PC brand operating from South Africa but with interests in other home-spun PC brands across Africa including Zinox, the Xpress Slate device is aimed not only as a content consumption device, but also as a device for business use.
Mustek retains a significant footprint in Africa, with anchor operations in Kenya and Nigeria. Mustek’s African presence is primarily based on partnership agreements reached with competent local companies. Mustek has a huge stake in Zinox Technologies in Nigeria as well as in Kenyan in the form of Mecer East Africa. With the Nigerian market currently awash with various tablet PC brands like iPad, Samsung Galaxy, Huawei, Motorola Xoom, etc, the market may have become already saturated should Mecer introduce its Nigerian Xpress version under Zinox.
This is purely an analytical prediction, Zinox likes to do things with that nationalist vision. Make it look local and Nigerian. It is not certain that it can go with any brand that is somewhere. Yet, we like this writeup from TechBrandReview.
