“The prime aim is to move in the direction of providing a connected environment to people. The vision is little too large as maybe it appears that we’re are starting with the small device, but the objective is to spread the awareness of making people ready for the new lifestyle,” said Manish Sharma, CEO, Panasonic India, and South Asia.
“We’re looking at a million devices in the first year, focusing specifically on urban markets. Of course, it will be available online so anybody in the country will have access to buy. But our target customer is fundamentally into some specific cities – somewhere in urban markets. We’re paying equal focus on both online retail and also on enterprise sale,” he added.
