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.
