The North Korean Tablet Computer Samjiyon: Hardware, Software and Resources | 38 North: Informed Analysis of North Korea
- A few months ago the ever-growing community of those interested in the DPRK learned that there is now something like a local version of the iPadâ€”the Samjiyon tablet computer (pâ€™anhyĹŹng kâ€™ompâ€™yutâ€™ĹŹ samjiyĹŹn). After having had a chance to test it briefly during a visit in May 2013, I could not resist buying a Samjiyon in a shop in Pyongyang in September 2013. It cost me 180 Euros. After a few days of intensive use I can say that this is one of the few cases in my career as a consumer when I got more for my money than I had expected.
