One of Sri Lanka’s top-notch, tech-savvy entrepreneurs – Dr. Prasantha Jayamanna the outspoken Chairman/CEO of DPJ Holdings, the holding company for tabZ, believes that high-end devices would not be a luxury but a necessity in the future.

 

“There is a huge integration of technology into our day-to-day lives.  Historically consumers have moved from  conventional into smartphones and currently a vast transition into high-end devices can be witnessed now. As such high-end devices  will become a necessity and in future prices will go down.   Growth in high-end digital devices phenomenal,” Dr. Jayamanna said.

 

Explaining his vision for Apple in Sri Lanka, Dr. Jayamanna said, “Apple products no longer cater only to high profile CEOs and top management executives. It is now an affordable device that a middle class family could use and experience the productivity and day-to-day ease it brings to our lives. From effectively managing your work, to sharing information with your friends, to using it as a source of entertainment, Apple is now a lifestyle brand that you can use from the start of your day to its end.” “Technology such as this releases barriers and expands our horizons. Using brands such as Apple allows people to see things from a different perspective and innovate. We firmly believe that the time is right for Apple in Sri Lanka. Prices are coming down and people’s disposable income is quite high. Along with this, we will introduce many novel repayment schemes to make Apple a brand that everyone can afford,” he further elaborated.

tabZ also announced that a dedicated showroom for all its Apple products, designed according to international Apple standards is currently under construction and is expected to be completed early next year.  In addition to this, showrooms out of Colombo are also envisaged, especially in key cities such as Jaffna, Galle and Kandy. The increased affordability of Apple in Sri Lanka is also expected to bring about several opportunities for Sri Lankans to develop and prosper. For instance, local musicians can use iTunes to sell their music, local developers can create apps which are introduced to the App Store while budding film makers can refine their talents using video editing apps. All that is required is the right technology, the right back-end support and a little bit of hype on the limitless possibilities.Schools, universities and other educational institutions can also use these products as a learning tool. Given the manner in which prices are reducing, it will soon be possible for each classroom to be equipped with tablets. In an attempt to make this a reality, tabZ has already started working with banks and other lending institutions to assist schools.
