WHY THE NAME SURTAB?
sûrtab, noun: A contraction word of the french adjective sûr and the English noun tablet. In French, sûr is used to designate things which are emphatic, certain, and true; things which cannot be doubted; things that must infallibly happen; things which are reliable. Our company was founded with the objective of empowering people in need by providing them with a reliable, long-lasting tablet. Thus we chose a name which we felt adequately reflected our company’s aims and ideals whilst providing us with a continual reminder that our duty — just like that of our products — is to be trustworthy and steadfast in order to change the face of technology forever.
