In one of Samsung’s largest tablet deals, in terms of the volume of sales worldwide, Samsung Electronics – Egypt has started delivering the shipments of its new tablets to the Egyptian government, according to the agreement signed with the Ministry of Education.
Under the agreement, Samsung would provide 708 smart tablets, to be distributed to the first secondary year students across Egypt, during the school year 2018/19.
The number of tablets to be provided covers the total number of students at government schools, as well as teachers who would be supervising the students’ use of the tablets.
Samsung was chosen as the supplier of these tablets, after the government announced a public tender among several technological companies working in the field. After several companies met the conditions of the tender, the armed forces carried out a comprehensive evaluation and reviewed the offers made, in order to guarantee the highest quality level, and determined the extent to which the technical specifications of the devices met the ministry’s requirements.
“The Egyptian Ministry choosing us as a trusted partner shows the high quality of our innovative products upon which users rely everywhere. The tablet the ministry chose comes with developed technical specifications, and is deemed the perfect choice for education,” said Samsun’s Chairman in Egypt, Jihyun Lee.
Noteworthy, the new tablet devices come with a three-year warranty, supported by Samsung’s customers service network, which is available across Egypt.
The new devices are also supported with Knox MDM software to secure the data stored on the tablet, and facilitate managing its content, which would give the Ministry of Education full control over the devices to be given soon.
Hossam El Kashef, head of Corporate Business at Samsung Egypt, said that in Samsung, there is reliance on the most developed technological applications, to create products that offer an exceptional experience for all users.
