Press Release: Anda Technologies and Borqs Announce Partnership to Launch Anda’s Symbol-based Communication Wearable for Children at COMPUTEX 2016


COMPUTEX Taipei is currently going on and while I’m not there I get some fun press releases. I have a young niece that is the bee’s knees and out of all the press releases I think the Snapdragon Wear is a great innovative product for kids…Maybe even adults who haven’t migrated to the 21st century.

Below is the official press release and I hope that I may be able to get one to review. Enjoy!

Taipei, Taiwan — May 31, 2016 – Anda Technologies, a Latin American children’s wearable designer and developer headquartered in Lima, Peru and Borqs International Holding Corp., a global product & solutions provider for Android based smart connected devices, are pleased to announce that they have partnered to develop and launch Anda’s first symbol-based communication wearable for children.

Anda’s device is the first Android connected wearable specifically created for children as young as three years old. The device boosts a plethora of children’s focused features (CFFs) including a proprietary symbol based language that allows for two-way communication without the need to know how to read or write. Designed with a 360 full color screen, medical grade materials and powered by Qualcomm Technologies’ next generation wearables processor Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Wear 2100, the device will revolutionize the way parents and children communicate while apart.

“As a father of two young children, I conceived the original idea of creating a symbol-based communications product out of my own need to stay emotionally connected to my children throughout the day,” said Jose Delmar, CEO of Anda Technologies. “Our device’s ability to deliver powerful emotional messages, that create instant moments of comfort and connection between parents and their children, regardless of age or writing skills, make it unlike any other children’s wearable product available in the marketplace.  Borqs’ extensive expertise and leadership in manufacturing Android-enabled wearables and Qualcomm Technologies’ next generation platform, Snapdragon Wear 2100, allows us to bring this dream to life. ”

“As a key Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear ecosystem provider, we are delighted to collaborate with Anda to bring out the most innovative wearable for children uniquely tailored to the Latin American market,” said George Thangadurai, senior vice president of international business, Borqs.  “Anda’s deep and extensive knowledge of the Latin American market combined with Borqs’ proven product track record has enabled us to develop the best kids’ wearable product leveraging the leading edge Snapdragon Wear platform from Qualcomm Technologies.”

Qualcomm Technologies’ products are in more than 100 wearable devices today,” said Pankaj Kedia, senior director, product management, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. “We are delighted that Anda selected us for its children’s wearable product. Our Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor is designed to meet the needs of tomorrow’s wearable devices and is optimized for small size, low power, smart sensing, and an always connected experience. These attributes will make it possible for Anda and Borqs to meet the demanding needs of kids in their product.”
