In a bid to prepare an industry-ready workforce for the Indian smartphone industry, 19 key component makers have trained a batch of 91 candidates from India and Taiwan during the smartphone design training programme organised by fabless semiconductor company MediaTek. The nine-week training programme was held in both the countries where the shortlisted candidates from smartphone brands like Lava, Micromax, Karbonn, Intex, Panasonic, Reliance, Samsung, Videocon and Smatron, etc, participated in theory sessions in India and hands-on training in Taiwan, MediaTek said on Monday.
