The use of tablet computers is growing in Africa, especially among youth. A young Nigerian named Saheed Adepoju has created the first tablet meant for the African market. It is called Inye, which means ‘the one’.
In this edition of Africa in Progress, the mastermind behind Inye reflects on the challenges of creating a new brand in a competitive sector already dominated by big players like Apple and Samsung. Adepoju's aim, he says, is to preserve African cultures by building applications that are relevant to Africa. One of his innovations is an electronic version of Ayo, the traditional African board game.
