New QUAN IPad Prototype Could Be The Missing Link In Mobile Technology’s Evolution

A revolutionary new advancement in mobile technology integration moved a giant step closer to hitting store shelves today when Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) announced that the company has finalized the technical specs for its new all-in-one external storage accessory for the Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPad.

The company is now in talks with a U.S.-based engineering firm to develop a prototype of the device for testing.

The visionary accessory will take the form of a sleek protective case capable of augmenting iPad devices’ memory and storage capacity while protecting the tablet from damage, says Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. The prototyping process will allow the company to test out other potential features, including a built-in foldaway keyboard and speakers.

The goal, Federowicz says, is to turn a good product into a great one.

“This new iPad enhancement is part of a series of lifestyle facilitator products that will help users better integrate with their tablets,” Federowicz said. “This case will make your iPad a more powerful, more dynamic machine while keeping it safe from bumps and spills. It’s a cool innovation for techies and non-techies alike, and we think it’s going to be a must-own peripheral for all Apple fanatics.”

Those fanatics comprise a massive growing market: There are currently more than 117 million iPad owners worldwide. Today, the market for iOS accessories is worth $2.3 billion and climbing, giving Quantum ample opportunity for significant growth in a booming marketplace.

The company has already contacted manufacturers in China about initiating production of the breakthrough accessory as soon as a prototype can be produced that meets internal performance targets.

Quantum International Corp. is working to develop the next generation of mobile and automation technologies to compete in a booming global industry alongside Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (NasdaqGS: ISRG), iRobot Corporation (NasdaqGS: IRBT) and Dover Corp. (NYSE: DOV).
