Infotech Lead Asia: Samsung’s Series 7 Chronos — that was launched in India last week — promises 150 percent increase in speed for browsing and running apps.
Samsung, which is planning to achieve 10 percent of its revenue from enterprise business in 2013 in Southwest Asia, said Series 7 Chronos and Series 7 Ultra Notebook can handle both work and entertainment applications.
Targeting business users and retail users, Samsung’s Series 7 Chronos features 15.6-inch full HD display with 10-point touch screen. It offers 11-hour battery life to let users work on-the-go, for longer.
Samsung Series 7 Ultra — running on Windows 8 — features 13.3-inch Full HD display with a 10-point touch screen, aluminum frame, an i5 / i7 CPU for fast-processing and up to 256GB of storage in its built-in SSD.
Worldwide PC shipments totaled 87.5 million units in the third quarter of 2012, a decline of 8.3 percent compared with the third quarter of 2011. Lenovo takes a slight lead over HP in worldwide PC shipments, according to preliminary results by Gartner.
Samsung recently launched — targeting small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) and small office and home office (SOHO) — Xpress M2875 Series and ProXpress M4070 Series printers and multifunctions.
Both business printers are backed by 600 Mhz Cortex-A5 processor and up to 128MB of memory to offer 28-40 page per minute printing output.
These two printers come with Samsung’s unique imaging technology: ReCP. The technology sharpens the edges of graphics and enhances the readability of negative texts, greatly helping to enhance printed images.
Recently, printer manufacturer PANTUM said it would focus on SMB and SOHO markets in India. PANTUM aims to be among the top five printer brands in the country by 2015. PANTUM’s India strategy will revolve around and reach quality of its products — reliable, affordable and environmental friendly printing solutions and services. The printing company will cover 64 top cities in India by the end of this year and expects to cover over 100 cities by the end of 2013.
