FURTHER DELAY IN USAF CONTRACT FOR 90,000 LAPTOPS FOLLOWING IMPOSITION OF 100% TARIFF ON TOSHIBA IMPORTS

By CBR Staff Writer

The US Air Force contract for 90,000 laptop computers has been hit with another setback, according to Microbytes Daily, which notes that the oft-delayed contract was originally to be awarded in February: latest hitch is the 100% tariff imposed on Japanese imports last month, which hit Toshiba, whose machine is one of the finalists in the bid: contract negotiations have now been reopened for some, but not all, of the bidders, and the award is now expected to be announced on August 14; one benefit of the hold-ups is that technology has marched on and the Air Force now expects to get a better box.
