Glory Star Group was formed in a time where huge technological advancements were made and continues to thrive by adapting to the trends in technology in 1984.. Mr. Cheung, the founder of Glory Star Group, after graduation from National Taipei University of Technology, moved to Hong Kong at the age of 25 with USD200 in his pocket and a passion for success. The business in its early stages started by trading calculators and smoothly transitioned to reselling the world's first cell phone, the Motorola DynaTAC 8000M. Weighing in at 2 pounds (picture this - the heaviest phone at the moment is the iPhone Pro Max weighing at 0.49 pounds!), it was one of the biggest breakthroughs in technology and the hefty price tag to acquire one was $3,995 USD at the time.
New developments in the company lead to the addition of Mr. Cheung’s children. Hermann Cheung graduated with a Master’s degree in HKUST in Engineering Management, and a mechanical engineering degree from California State University. Cindy Cheung graduated with a Bachelor of Laws from University of London and a Business Degree from University of Hong Kong. In addition to the growing team at Glory Star, it was decided that the new company vision was to develop Android tablets. It didn’t take long before Glory Star became one of the pioneers for touch screen tablets and as of today has installed over 800,000 worldwide.

What are the differences between commercial tablets and consumer tablets?
Consumer Tablets usually have a 1 year life cycle. Commercial tablets usually have a 5 years or more life cycle that allows developers to develop according to the hardware requirements to stabilize their software on the hardware as well as supplying to the same project with the same product in this time frame. Commercial Tablets are more focused on providing a stable platform with non-changing components to support long term projects.
What are the advantages of a commercial tablet?
The advantages of a commercial tablet are long support cycle, higher quality components, designed for stationary applications without having to produce another mount, customizable, customer’s bootup logo and can remain in the same firmware version for every batch of order. Option for OEM.
How to choose between Windows and Android?
This would depend on the requirements of your project. If the deployment is smaller and requires accessories like barcode, MSR that doesn’t have drivers for Android, then Windows would be the option. Although the downside for Windows is the cost of the license fee as well as its constant update. Android’s cost is lower, however, there are more development time involved for driver applications. In a nutshell, if the quantity of the project is there- Android would be the option. If the deployment has a lower quantity, then Windows would be the option.
