Tycoon would be priced at $ 650 as compared with Apple iPad’s $499 in United States with Wi Fi and 16 GB data storage.
Windows 7 supports multi touch functions and FIC opted for that. FIC is the first company to come up with a tablet using Windows 7 environment which they successfully performed under the assistance from Microsoft.
Now the question is that why would Tycoon go for Windows 7 instead of Android operating system? Maybe its because they are looking for more business oriented users!
FIC has won initial order for 3,000 Tycoons from Vibo Telecom a 3G provider, although its a part of First International Group. It plans to sell around 1,000 Tycoons per month in domestic market.
