Logic Instrument, a French military grade device maker, is aiming to expand its Android mobile device products with the help of Archos. Just recently Archos bought almost half of Logic Instrument which is the reason why both companies are working together.
Archos CEO Loic Poirier said that they partnered with Logic Instrument to bring cost effective yet rugged tablets and smartphones to the enterprise market in what he says is a consumer to business initiative (C2B). “It was a perfect partnership to extend the range and to bring all our products to the enterprise and create C2B – which is really important. C2B means: ‘why shouldn’t the employee benefit from the latest technology, such as full HD, NFC?’ Because today, if you look at the professional world, many of the products are dual-core and old.”
Logic Instrument will be releasing products on two sectors namely the industry and defense division and the enterprise division.
