Speaking of North Korea's computer, you have to mention its operating system. In North Korea this "country" countries, the computer software installed is not a word thing? North Korea's computer is said to have used Microsoft's Windows system for quite some time, and for some reason, the domestic system "Red Star 3" debuted.
Is the interface somewhat familiar? This "Red Star 3" system does look a bit like a localized macOS, but the author based on research found that this system is actually developed by the Linux system, the Linux into macOS, the use of Huaqiang North produced iPhone X friends, It's time to raise your hands.
Red Star system by the Korea Computer Center (Korea Computer Center) prepared. The center is North Korea's hub for science and technology research and employs about 1,000 people. It also has offices in Germany, Syria, China and the United Arab Emirates. The center manages the North Korean official website portal, Naenara ("My Country" site in North Korea) and a government-approved search engine.
The development of North Korea's own system is in line with North Korea's independent development. But why is it like the macOS? There are many reasons for this. The only iMac in North Korea is said to be on the leader's desk.
Now is the era of smart phones, without this stuff to go minute minutes hard to move, of course, this may not include North Korea. In fact, North Korea also has a smart phone, this phone brand is called "Pyongyang" (Pyongyang).
This "Pyongyang" cell phone looks no different from a typical smartphone, except for some dirt. Phone can know the hardware information is, front 2 million pixel camera, rear 8 million pixel camera, this configuration against the domestic thousand machine no chance of winning. It is noteworthy that although this phone looks very likely to use Android, but it can not access the Internet, you can not install pre-installed software (including dictionary, encyclopedia) any one of the software.
The price of the phone is based on the configuration of different (what is not clear), according to different configurations in the 250-690 US dollars, the highest price of about 4700 yuan. As mentioned above, Chinese companies have hired a 400-yuan monthly salary in North Korea, which is a fairly high income in the region.
And 4,700 yuan in the local about 1.25 tons of rice to buy, enough for an adult to eat for 7 years. So it seems that this phone is a trench in the sky. In North Korea can buy this phone must be an unusual character. In addition to smart phones, in fact, they also have a tablet can choose.
A technology company called Ryonghung launched a tablet named Ryonghung iPad. This version of the Tablet PC introduced this year is a bit shabby: it features a 4-core processor clocked at just 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM. As a tablet, Ryonghung company equipped with a keyboard and HDMI interface, it is still a bit small accident.
The tablet was defined by the manufacturer as a production tool, pre-installed software includes calculators, encyclopedia of health, medical software and agricultural programs. Allegedly can use more than 40 kinds of applications, but these are already equipped at the time of purchase. In addition this tablet can be connected to North Korea "Bright Network", so the purchase of this tablet, it is estimated to apply to the relevant departments.
Perhaps in many people's eyes, North Korea's civil intelligence technologies may seem backward and shabby, but Ben-wei reminded everyone that these were evolved independently when North Korea was subjected to external extreme blockades. The happiness brought by these technologies is also true for the Korean people who can use these products. The fruits of technological development should be shared by all humankind, which of course should also include the vast majority of the people of North Korea.
