Viettel plans to pilot Ipads in the second quarter and launch their new service at a price of less than 200 USD by the end of the year.

Nguyen Vu Luu, director of its Electronic Equipment Production Centre, made the statement at a conference on technology research at businesses held by the group in the capital on Feb. 24.

Luu said the upcoming experiment will help them maximise the design and operation of the made-by-Viettel devices.

"Our Ipads will target a niche market such as the education sector," he said.-VNA
