Reuters reported in its report that the JioBook laptop will be embedded with a 4G SIM card. Sources said it would be available to clients such as schools and government institutions starting this month. It will be available for sale to general consumers within the next three months.
The biggest challenge JioBook will face will be building its user base as Windows laptops dominate the market and users are friendly towards them. We have seen that Google Chrome Books have also tried to create their own marketplace, but have not been successful on a large scale. The GeoBook’s biggest strength may be its price. The offer of a laptop for Rs 15,000 can attract people towards it. This can be a great gift for students.
HP and Dell are reportedly leading the way in the laptop market in India. The notebook market with annual sales of 14 million units is expected to expand by 15% after the launch of JioBook. Sources have said that JioBook will be manufactured locally and that the company is aiming to sell thousands of units by March. The company may introduce JioBook very soon.
