Recently, KTC launched new products of pad series and became part of our flat panel display terminal family.
For the past few years, the demand of pad market increased rapidly. Owning a pad becomes fashion. According to the prediction of IDC, a famous market research institution: the global market sales volume in 2012 will reach 117.1 million; in the year 2013, this amount will increase to 165.9 million; and in 2016, this amount will be 261.4 million. In domestic market, there are about 10 million domestic products in 2012, twice as the amount, 4.5 million of 2011. From the share of market, Apple, Lenovo, Eben, and Samsung range in top 4. Especially Apple, it takes 70% of market share, and other brands have relatively smaller shares. However, from the first three seasons, the market share of Apple begins to decline, which means that the “monopoly” market will be changed gradually and there is much upside potential for other brands.
Therefore, after evaluating the market and our own advantages, KTC decided to enter the field of pad manufacturing. After one-year research&development and test, we launched pad in Oct. 2012.
Technically speaking, there are Allwinner, NVIDIA, Rockchips and any other domestic mainstream chip schemes. And we adopted the latest RK3066 scheme of Rockchips which is designed for mobile internet. It is based on a mixed analog-digital SOC chip of Cortex-A1, with high-performance and low power consumption; it can support 1080P video and coding, super strong 3D/2D acceleration and speed web surfing. It is one of the highest cost performance schemes at present.

The newly-launched 7-inch and 10.1-inch products are named respectively: 700P11A(Light and thin technology accompanies you), 700P21A(Fashionable quality and extraordinary flavor) and 101P11C(Entertainment inclusive), 101P21C(The wonderful world just lies within your palm), and the name of 9.7-inch is 970P11B(Modern technology provides infinite entertainment).
