Kerala has become the first state in India to design and manufacture laptops in the country. A public-private partnership (PPP) enterprise, called Coconics, has launched its first range of laptops aimed at government, enterprise, and educational institutions. The announcement was made on the sidelines of the 2019 edition of Electronics Manufacturing Summit in New Delhi.

Coconics has launched three laptop models. The CC11B, among the series, is a two-in-one notebook with an 11-inch FHD touchscreen display, Intel Celeron N3350 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB eMMC storage, USB Type-C connectivity and up to eight hours of battery backup. The laptop is aimed at users who travel frequently.

Coconics is a collaboration between the state-run Keltron and the US-based technology firm UST Global, KSIDC and Acceleron. The company is pitched as a unique private-public laptop manufacturer from Kerala. Intel is roped in as well provide the guidance and technical assistance to manufacture laptops in India under the ‘Make in India’ initiative.

The laptops will be manufactured at the state-of-the-art plant in Monvilla, Thiruvananthapuram. Coconics is capable of producing 2,50,000 laptops in a year. The manufacturing plant is ready and will be inaugurated sometime this month. Once the plant is officially inaugurated, the production of the laptops will begin.

According to Coconics, the new notebooks will be distributed by the second-quarter of 2019. The prices of the laptops will depend on the amount of order the company receives from the organization/or educational institutions.

In a Facebook post last week, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan wrote: “We are going to leverage the advantage we have in human resources by pivoting to Hi-tech manufacturing…. The initiative will become an important step in the State’s foray into the electronics sector.”

The other two laptops in the series are CC11A and C314A.

The CC11A is a slim, lightweight notebook aimed to cater to educational institutes. The notebook comes with an 11-inch HD display, Intel Celeron N4000 processor, 2GB RAM, and 64GB eMMC storage. While the C314A is a rugged notebook aimed at the enterprise market. It features a 14-inch HD display and features an Intel i3 7100U processor coupled with 4GB RAM and 500GB HDD storage. All three notebooks run on the Windows 10 operating system.
