Leading UK bed and mattress specialist Mattressman has announced today that its MD, Andrew Kerry will be broadening his empire to incorporate the technology market.
The successful entrepreneur, who turns over £16 M each year, founded his company Mattressman in 1999 when there were currently no online mattress specialists. The gap in the market led the way for a string of successful websites and in the successive years, the predominantly online company has opened a chain of stores across the country.
A fan of gadgets since childhood, Andrew has always been interested in the technology market. Armed with a dedicated team of enthusiastic staff with a similar passion for all things geeky, the idea of breaking into the world of technology, specifically the tablet market, was formed.
"Android is such a liberal platform" said Mr. Kerry "with thousands of app developers working every day on new and exciting projects, there's a whole world of interesting possibilities for consumers, just waiting to be explored".
"You can do almost anything on Android, so the natural progression for me was to look at what was currently on offer in the tablet market and see what was missing".
The new tablet, named the ‘Andy Pad’, will be unique in the world of tablets in that it will come pre-installed with a variety of the most popular apps. All the apps bundled will be free allowing you to check your favourite social network or play the latest games straight out of the box.
Launching in early September, the Andy Pad can be found at AndyPad.co.uk/.
