Idolian.com Partners with Get Folks Online! to Introduce Low Cost, High Performance Android Tablet PCs to Seniors, Veterans, Students and People with Disabilities


Mitigating the Digital Divide One Household at a Time!

Mundelein, IL, June 24, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The FCC blog on March 21, 2013 states “In the 21st century workforce, it has never been more important to possess digital skills. Yet, more than 100 million Americans do not have a broadband connection at home, and 62 million do not use the Internet at all.”

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said, “The costs of digital exclusion – of not having access to Internet at home–are rising every day. Offline Americans are missing out on opportunities in education, health care, and employment.”

Get Folks Online© offers a 360 Program that provides an affordable cellular mobility high-speed Internet connection, Idolian android tablet device and a robust no-charge self-paced training program that provides a baseline proficiency in Internet navigation to identify and use applications of interest to the user.

“As the android tablet and mobile device markets continue to expand and grow, most individuals hoping to obtain such technology are constantly restricted from purchasing capable and responsive devices because they are too expensive,” said Jay Kim, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Idolian. “Until now, most people have had few options for acquiring high-quality, low-cost devices, like those that Idolian manufactures and distributes, that meet their needs.”

Based on Idolian Mobile’s constituent growth, Kim says there’s a clear need for more technology in the marketplace and he says that consumers’ buying decisions suggest that there’s clearly more room for competition to rival the big names in the space. In fact, Idolian’s new “Studio Series” line – the Studio 10 and the Mini Studio – were crafted and developed to compete directly with the industry’s biggest names, including Apple, Acer and ASUS, among others, but unlike others available in the market, Idolian’s are offered for several much less.

The Idolian android tablets are ideal for folks with visual acuity and dexterity issues as they are lightweight and portable. According to Allan M. Olbur, founder Get Folks Online! “disconnected American’s are at a disadvantage for obtaining employment and education as applications and rich content are now online”. He further states “It is burdensome to leave the home in inclement weather simply to seek out a facility with public computers that offer no privacy or security.”

The philosophy of handing down refurbished clunker computers that are at end of life or require maintenance is not effective and results in user frustration. Obtaining a brand new device with extended warranty capabilities insures sustainable broadband adoption and usage. Idolian Mini Studio tablets technical specifications are comparable to the iPad Mini. Unlimited Internet service costs around 74 cents per day, less than a gallon of milk or gas!
