YEREVAN — Armenia will launch its own tablet computer and smartphone next year, the government press service said Friday, on the heels of the launch of Russia’s first smartphone earlier this week.

Prototypes of the devices were presented at a Friday meeting of the country’s Industrial Council, chaired by Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sarkisian.

Armenian-American joint venture — Technology and Science Dynamics Inc/Armtab Technologies — would start producing the Armtab tablet and Armphone mobile in early 2014. The price for Armtab will range from $ 200-250 with one year warranty service.

The company’s director, Vahan Shakarian, said it had already developed test models of the tablet — running on an Android platform with 3G and Wi-Fi capability with screen sizes of 7.85, 9, 9.7 and 10.1 inches — as well as a sample of the smartphone.

Shakarian informed that the software design and technical support is provided by Armenia, with assembly in the United States and Hong Kong.
