Infotech Mauritius 2012 = Noobtech

Infotech 2012, the 19th edition of this so-called Mauritian hi-tech forum is being held from September 13 to 16 at the Swami Vivekananda International Convention Centre, Paille. The last time I went to the Infotech event was in 2010 and it was a nonetheless boring experience.

This year, I went to the Infotech with a precise aim: The Orange Tablet priced at Rs 3000 and beside being boring, the event was a big deception.

If you are amazed about this tablet and planning to grab one, here’s an advice: STAY AWAY. This tablet is far from being the magical gift Orange is claiming it is. For one: the touch screen itself is not so smooth. (Makes me remember that old Symbian Nokia C3..something I used to have).

The camera? 0.3 Megapixel. Seriously?? That’s like doing a video call using one of those webcam the late-Nomad used to bribe its customers with.

The Orange Tablet manufactured by an Indian company named Pantel. At this stage I was already like: “Fuck a Saturday Wasted!”. I hanged around for some more 15 minutes seeing nothing more than the usual stuff we already know about. I probably missed some stuff since the crowd at the Infotech was overwhelming.

My trip at the Infotech lasted less than 30 minutes. Conclusion: If you are a noob and wanna be recognised as one: Head straight to Orange’s zone and tell them how much you are impressed with the crappy Rs 3000 tablet. Otherwise you can also enjoy a trip there to watch laptops, mobile phones, and again laptops, and more laptops.

Job Section: Sure thing! You will have a dozen of Call Centers recruiting. Beside these, nothing great except the usual presence of companies like Accenture and Linkeo.

    Yeah, the orange bag was the only interesting thing.
    Ti plis ki lafoir.
    Total waste of time. At least I took some photos. No interesting things, no word about Windows 8 and no hybrid laptops. No Windows Phones either. The Nokia lumia 800 and 900 were locked. They were not even on. My god. Couldn’t see too many touchscreens either. Seems like we had less to see this year.
