North Korea is not too far behind its southern brother in its technological ideals. Although most might imagine the North Korean people listening to wooden radios, the new popular gadget is the Achim tablet.
Sure, North Korea doesn’t have Samsung
or LG, but they now have Achim.
This is reportedly
a 7” tablet running a weird Linux distribution.
The weird part is the fact that the operating system, although based on Linux open technology
, is a Korean distribution with a closed source.
The name of the operating system is Red Star and the new device is apparently targeting school children, but it has already gained popularity among students that are probably tired of their wooden radio.
