New tablet launched by Nigerian company

Africans doing it for themselves! A 29 year old entrepeneur from Nigeria, Saheed Adepoju, has developed a low cost tablet….ok low cost by Western standards if you compare the price of the Inye $250 to $700 for an Ipad. The Inye which means One in Igala (a Nigerian lanugage) runs on Google’s Android System.┬áThe first 100 units of the Inye were made in China but developed by Saheed. In a BBC interview with Saheed, he commented on designing apps to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS and water and sanitation. He hopes the Inye will be embraced by students, the Nigerian government and the African market.
