Venture 3 Systems and D&H Distributing, launch the Telikin touch computer!

CHALFONT, Pa.--( Telikin partners with D&H )--Venture 3 Systems, LLC, a manufacturer of Telikin computers, today announced a partnership with D&H Distributing, one of the nation's premier consumer electronics and computer distributors. The Telikin computer is the new “Easy to Use” personal AIO Touch computer with built in software for all popular functions targeted at home users and senior users. Telikin will further complete D&H�s current catalog of high-quality, name-brand computers, making the Telikin computer accessible to D&H�s entire network of IT resellers, consumer electronics dealers and retailers.

“Telikin is the first personal Linux computer built from the ground up with an integrated set of applications makes the end-user experience truly effortless.”

In a recent report, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) confirms that overall growth of the CE industry increased 6% in 2010 and is expected to hit $186B in 2011. A major component of this prediction is the growing market of home technologies, including exciting products for seniors.

The Census Bureau reports there are more than 46.5 million consumers over the age of 60, and the baby boomer generation, those now 44 to 62 years of age, constitute approximately 25% (76 Million) of the total US population. By the year 2012, people age 50 and older in the United States will number 100 million people. Pew Research Center acknowledges that the Internet remains the domain of users under 32 years of age. But older populations are gaining ground, based on the study that compared user trends in 2005 and 2008.

“Telikin is exactly what consumers need if looking for a simple, yet fully functional computer that allows them to enjoy the top functionality of PCs including video chat, photo sharing, email, word processing, and social media, minus the viruses, pop-ups and complex applications,” said Merle Eakins, SVP of Sales and Marketing. “Telikin is the first personal Linux computer built from the ground up with an integrated set of applications makes the end-user experience truly effortless.”

“Telikin has identified a unique niche in the personal computer space, creating a specialized offering that we�re happy to present to our customer community,” said Rob Eby, vice president of purchasing at D&H Distributing. “Studies confirm that the baby boomer market is maturing not just in years but in the amount of wealth they have accumulated, which makes them an attractive target for technology purchases. Telikin�s PC is purpose-built for that buyer, giving them the capabilities they want for their everyday lives.”
