TGR: Stars and Stripes from China: 1sqbox.com's Alexis Coates, Granville Templeton in China, Japan
(BALTIMORE - July 4, 2012) - 1sqbox.com has taken their show on the road. Literally! Currently in Shenzhen, China, 1sqbox.com CEO Granville Templeton – along with Chairman and CTO Alexis Coates – are pitching their tablet to potential manufacturers. They also hit Narita, Japan.
“We just believe that China and Japan have a demonstrated track record for exemplary manufacturing of digital technology products,” said Coates. “You have to look at the way they've been able to ride this technology wave. By the way, we’re also looking at India, Pakistan, and other parts of Southeast Asia.”
1sqbox.com had already inserted their tablet at City Springs Elementary and Middle School in the Baltimore City Public School system.
