The first touch-screen tablet manufactured in Haiti and its affordable price have captured the interest of Haitians, particularly within low income households and the youth.
The Android operating system-based tablet, called Surtab is a source for pride and hope for many Haitians who wish to have access to such technological tools and its related opportunities.
The Surtab company CEO, Belgian entrepreneur Maarten Boute, said his commitment is to offer a big-value product at affordable cost to make sure the youth and many professionals have access to a tool that they can use for their studies and daily work.
The Surtab Wi-Fi tablet factory price is now $85, and the 3G model costs $150, but this model may be purchased from retailers at about $200, while the Wi-Fi version may cost $100 to the end user.
