 The introduction of an affordable smartphone in Ghana could be set to take the local mobile landscape to the next level. Kathryn Cave speaks to Kane Mani, the 25-year-old CEO and co-founder of app developer, Origgin about apps, Waakye and how technology can help solve Africa’s problems.

On 19th June this year, MTN Ghana launched the brand new Ascend Y210 in partnership with Huawei. This could be described as a milestone because by offering the country’s first affordable smartphone it could help drive data usage, increase business potential and through the availability of apps, help ease social issues. Priced at USD 81, this handset comes complete with 65 minutes of voice calls and 200MB of data each month for 12 months.
