All Caucasus under A-book сover2011-06-14 14:40
The dreams of Sakartvelo's authorities to turn the country into a Caucasian Singapore sometimes realized in a least trivial way. It was decided: if the Asian country they would like to resemble so much is a large producer of electronic appliances, something similar should be urgently manufactured in Georgia, too. A netbook called "A-book" that will be regularly produced quite soon, by the beginning of the new school-year, will be the Georgian reply to Singapore. At first 50 000 electronic appliances will be manufactured, then the production volume are planned to reach 300 000 per year. Nothing to say, the plan sounds good. But it is not clear yet who will buy these miracles of computer technology.

Very soon the production of mini-computers must be opened in the Georgian capital. Now there are some maintenance works at the site of the future plant. The hardware assembly line is built by a company with a high-sounding name "Algorithm".
Three million dollars, the money needed to purchase the required equipment in China, were provided by the government of the country, diving hand into the credit of the World Bank. A strategic partner of the Georgian company in the creation of the "national" mark of netbooks is the global processor production leader Intel who has realized its teaching program "One pupil - one computer" in different countries of the world.
This is the beautiful preamble of the new ambitious project of the Georgian authorities. The CEO of Algorithm Giorgy Korasashvili shared its anecdotal part with the journalists. "We will be able to produce up to 300 000 computers per year: both netbooks and notebooks and ordinary computers. All international standards will be observed during the hardware assembly, the sales will depend on the demand both in Georgia itself and in the South Caucasus countries", the head of Algorithm pictured out the brilliant future of A-Book.
And here not everything seems so magnificent. Who could need Georgian computers apart from Georgians themselves? Above all, will they be patriotic enough to purchase products of unknown quality if some hardware of famous manufacturers assembled in China can be purchased for comparatively little money? The domestic equivalent will hardly be cheaper as the production line is purchased in the same China and the cost of manpower in the Celestial Empire is still lower than in Georgia, in spite of the beggarly salaries paid in the Transcaucasian republic. So there are certain perspectives. The most important thing is that the production volume of the first Georgian computer is extremely dubious.
