These people are flourishing at the cost of the country. True patriotism involves taking a share of the burden.

An excellent article none the less.

The secret strength of Pakistan economy is begging and the fund it gets for war against terrorism from US. Pakistani politicians and army generals keep half of the fund in their pockets, one fourth it uses for purchasing arms and rest one fourth they give to terrorists.

Pakistan Army debuts in the handheld market

Islamabad –(Express Tribune – Adding from ProPakistani): Pakistan Army is reportedly in process of developing a handheld tablet, a market dominated by the likes of Apple, Amazon and Samsung, reported Express Tribune the other day.

A rather surprising report said that the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) Kamra has started up a new commercial venture with a Chinese company to manufacture smart tablets to strengthen national economy.

It is said that venture may produce several products starting with a computing tablet, a notebook and an eBook reader.

Details suggest that products are initially being marketed in Rawalpindi, but modalities needed to be finalized so it could expand to other cities including Lahore and Karachi.

The competitively priced products, he said, have several benefits because they are being manufactured in Kamra.

“It comes with a joint one-year warranty of PAC and Innavtek. Because PAC is producing it, it will ensure quality. We will also provide backup support,” the official said an official.

It is interesting to note here that cpmc.pk, the website for the venture, is currently down for exceeding bandwidth.

We are awaiting response from their sales team on pricing and specification; hence expect more details here soon.

Update:

According to ProPakistani.pk there are two devices (a tablet and e-reader) available for sale. Notebook will be made available in March 2012. Keep reading for more details:
