The 20th edition of Nepal’s largest ICT exhibition “Subisu CAN Info-Tech 2014” is on-going now at Bhrikutimandap, Kathmandu from January 2 till 7. Info tech is planned to cover Nepal information, technology, entertainment show & conference with diversified IT, Communications, Entertainment and associated products cum services.
Whether you have visited the exhibition or have planned to visit soon or could not visit due to your circumstances, Team TechSansar has worked to gather and present in a honest and lucid way details about CAN Infotech 2014. This article covers devices, gadgets, services, products and ICT conference that CAN is expressive about.
Devices @ CAN Info-Tech 2014
Many think that CAN Info-Tech 2014 is full of great devices, awesome smartphones, alternative power or energy options – but what actually matters is money – while many companies have offered discount(s) during the Exhibition duration. Visitors can avail facilities of discount, purchase offers and others.
High end gadgets, and devices we noticed in CAN Info-Tech 2014 make a list of following so far, however, many still expected devices not yet seen in the Nepalese markets.
Dell’s 2014 Models of Bonsai & Hadley Laptops & Hybrids
NEO-tab, Neoteric’s own branded Android 3G tablet
Free Livguard Smart battery from Winncom Mobiles
Relatively cheaper smart phones from Micromax
GenXT’s Power banks and chargers (relatively expensive but wanted by many due to loadshedding!)
Company claimed discounted offer on Apple’s iMac and Mac Book Pro (what was the discount btw?)
IT Services @ CAN Info-Tech 2014
Subisu has arranged to provide free Internet some areas of CAN Info-tech 2014 exhibition stalls. Also premises are covered by monitored CCTV for visitor’s safety. Confusions on whether they are delivering IT, ICE or ICT services or products is still there – service or product? However, CAN’s motto of “Let’s Build e-Nepal: Together we CAN” seems to be spreading with the consumer’s consciousness of devices rather than some one else’s effort. We noticed these popular IT services so far on CAN Info-Tech 2014.
Internet subscription offer from Subisu including FTTH and Cable Internet package
Kaspersky Antivirus solution from Sagar group at much discounted price (per device cost)
Nepal Telecom’s 3G pre-paid SIM costing Rs 100 with balance of the same Rs 100 (which otherwise had to be purchased from NTC’s offices without this offer)
IT & Tech Education @ CAN Info-Tech 2014
Computer education training institutes and companies in CAN Info-Tech 2014 are hopeful to get more visitors who could enroll for various offered IT courses. Companies in the event range from +2 colleges to IT training institutes to Computer training organizations to BPO and IT Outsourcing companies – many offering courses, few jobs while others offering opportunities in the Information Technology industries in the country and abroad.
CAN Info-Tech 2014 being a mega event of Information, Communication & Entertainment Technology (as CAN always say) should have encouraged some organizations and education institutes, even enthusiast individuals, so that they could deliver really USEFUL IT & TECH Education, awareness, security & privacy concern for Nepalese tech users or visitors of the exhibition. This lack is saddening to see.
With the tagline of “Mobile Technology for Smart Society”, Subisu CAN ICT Conference 2014 aims to cover various sectors of IT-enabled and ICT4D with Nepalese perspective, specially focusing on concept of “m” technology.
The CAN Info-Tech related ICT Conference is supposed to cover ICT advancements (in CAN’s words) in generating Nepal as an Smart Society thru the use of various mobile based services, products and technologies.
