The Vantium v1 tablet is expected to boost the tablet market in Africa and be relevant to local consumers as it is preconfigured to operate the Microsoft Word, Excel and Power point. It is designed for work and play at the same time “with the Vantium v1 you can play and work also, it has a USB Port which allows for free movement of files unlike the iPad where you have to depend on iTunes”. you can connect your Flash Disk or external hard disk as large as 250 GB and copy files directly into the Vantium v1. Enjoy Vantium to Vantium chatting just like blackberry to blackberry pinging. The Vantium v1 is certified by DSTV to allow people watch DSTV live on the Vantium v1.
The Vantium v1 is perfect for everyday computing which allows you do all that you would normally do on your laptop and even more. It is expected to do to the laptop what the laptop did to the desktop. I sit in anticipation and really won’t mind having one…(Complements of the company) The interesting thing is that you can have all these wonderful benefits at about half the price of its peers.
