Synnex will distribute Senkatel’s K-12 tablets in Canada

One market where new form factor devices such as tablets are finding traction is in the cost-conscious K-12 education market, and that’s one of the market targeted by Senkatel and its new distribution agreement with Synnex.

Senkatel North America is a Toronto-based supplier of high-performance affordable tablets, HDTV peripherals and software ecosystems solutions for K-12 education and enterprise markets. It has tapped Synnex as a U.S. distributor, and as its exclusive distributor in Canada.

The Senkatel lineup includes 10 models, from a 7” HD multimedia tablet to an 11” quad XGA ultra-high resolution tablet with built-in dual band Wi-Fi connectivity and optional 3G/4G cellular communication modules. And last summer it unveiled two K-12 focused offerings with classroom management software for teachers and students.

“Senkatel is pleased to be aligned with Synnex and New Age Electronics to share the goal of making advanced technology tablets more affordable to a wider population of users, from consumers to students and educators,” said Joseph Virginia, president of Senkatel North America, in a statement. “This exciting partnership substantially expands our North American market presence through a Fortune 500 organization recognized throughout the industry for its outstanding customer experience and support.”

The agreement will see Synnex sell and support Senkatel’s portfolio of tablet computers and education ecosystem software for retail, enterprise and education markets in the US through its New Age Electronics division, and exclusively in Canada.
