The Global Marketing Coordinator, Mafalda Cobliani, was ask a series of questions about Antec’s new innovation and direction. Below were some:
What inspired Antec’s decision to move in this direction?
“As the user experience continually goes mobile, Antec is diversifying its portfolio to accommodate contemporary user’s demands.”
But does this expansion of the Advance line represent a major shift in focus for Antec?
“Absolutely not. PC cases and PSU will always be our core competency-period. But at the same time, Antec recognizes the increasing influence that mobile technology has in our daily lives. We have always been aware of finding the perfect balance between form and function. So in this regard, we are delighted to provide our users with fashionable and elegant devices that reflect their personality”.
