After weeks of waiting, the much anticipated ‘Uhuru’ has finally arrived.
‘UHURU... It’s coming...’ was the screens of many Ghanaians raising several questions as to what it was.
It has now finally arrived and was welcomed by a host of expectant guests on Saturday.
'Uhuru', is the latest device to be launched by Ghana's leading I.T and electronics Company, RLG Communications. The device is a combination of a laptop and a tablet.
The tablet can be detached from the keypad and used on its own.
In an interview with citifmonline.com
after the launch, Chief Commercial Officer of RLG Communications, Archibald Annan said “We describe it as the product that is more than a tablet because it gives you the freedom to work with it as a laptop or as a tablet if you so wish. You can detach it and use it around and just dock it on the keypad and you have your laptop.
“It comes with the latest Windows 8 from Microsoft, it is touch screen and it uses a Core i5 processor which is the highest in the range of laptops worldwide.
"Even if you take off the tablet you still have your i5 processor which is higher than any other tablet on the market in terms of the processor speed.”
RLG which is currently present in about four African countries has given indications the product would be present in all these countries which include Nigeria, Gambia and South Africa.
A re-launch of ‘Uhuru’ in South Africa is scheduled for later this year.
Uhuru is a Southern African Swahili word meaning 'Freedom', originating from Kenya.
