Egyptian minister of telecommunications and IT announces debut of locally produced tablet on Thursday,

Egypt unveiled on Thursday its first locally produced smart tablet, under the trademark 'Inar.

The exact details about the device's capabilities have not revealed yet.

The state-owned electronics firm Katron, which will produce the Egyptian tablet, plans to manufacture 20 million units.

The units worth LE2 billion will be manufactured over the next four years, Minister of Telecommunications and Information Techonology Atef Helmy said on Thursday during the forum to launch Egypt’s ICT Strategy (2013- 2017).

Greater Cairo-based Katron was established in 1964.

Helmy added that the first 10,000 smart units will be produced before the end of this year.

Knowing this place as I do they are probably referring to a pharmaceutical smart tablet to enhance the populations intelligence levels from .1 to .2 A lot of things get lost in translation here.
