North Korea launches tablet

Written by Nedim Hadzic

At who?

North Korea has officially launched its first tablet and although not exactly a gamechanger, at least it’s not the kind of launch we’ve grown to expect from the communist hermit kingdom.

Dubbed the “Achim”, the device is a 7-inch tablet that translates to “morning”. It weighs 300 grams and runs up to 5 hours on a single charge.

Although the rest of the features cannot be confirmed with certainty at the moment, it is said that Achim is running on Red Star, North Korean proprietary Linux distribution. Yup, we’re talking about a closed off open-source OS. A techsymoron anyone?

As you’d expect, the tablets are restricted to domestic intranet and the educational material contained within. Additionally, the Achim comes filled with videos glorifying the Party and leader Kim Jong-un, so it’s a full package.

The Achim is said to be aimed at school children but has apparently gained in popularity with students. It is available in standard and bog-standard versions. Just kidding, it’s the same one for everyone.
