Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas, NV (January 4, 2011) – CTL™ and appAttach today announced a partnership that will bring value-added software and online service apps to the CTL range of personal computing devices. Though the appAttach Marketplace, CTL™ will source apps that will be integrated into CTL™ devices, starting with the 2goPC™ line. The CTL™ 2goPad™ will be the first device to incorporate the new offerings in the 1st quarter of 2011.
The preloaded apps will provide CTL’s customers with out-of-the-box functionality that enhances the user experience. “Enabling valuable experiences through our devices is essential to fulfilling CTL’s vision of creating the most flexible, useful and functional product we can for our customers,” said Erik Stromquist, CTL’s COO. “Collaborating closely with appAttach to identify and integrate relevant software and online services onto our devices will benefit many customers, making these new experiences easily accessible and simple to use.”
“It’s gratifying to work with CTL™ as we launch appAttach because they share our vision about preloading value-added apps,” said James DePoy, Founder and CEO of appAttach. He added, “If smartphones and tablets have taught us anything, it’s that consumers not only value preloaded apps, but it’s often a point of differentiation – the key is to choose the right apps.”
Founded in 1989, CTL™ designs and manufactures computer products including desktop and mobile workstations, LED Monitors, and high performance servers. CTL™ also manufacturers specialty devices including ruggedized tablets, and slates. CTL’s brands include CTL and the popular 2go PC™.
