Ghanaian entrepreneur, Mr. Kofi Kludgeson, recently unveiled the KPad, an Android based tablet device which he hopes will serve as Ghana’s answer to the iPad. (See product specs below this post) KPad which stands for Kludgeson Pad will be sold to consumers at a rate of 75 Ghanaian Cedis per month over a three year period to enhance its affordability among Ghanaians. Kludgeson hopes to capture about 1% of the Ghanaian market with his product.
Kludgeson who is the Executive Chairman of Alltell in Ghana is also founder of Akasanoma PC and Internet TV.
According to him:
“Our target is to distribute a minimum of 204,000 units of the Akasanoma triple play all–in-one PC internet and TV system and KPad tablets to workers students, corporate and educational institutions in all 170 districts in Ghana which represents about one percent of the Ghanaian population within three years.”
“The first year of Alltel will be product introduction, product education, heavy promotion and market penetration; the second and third years will be periods of rapid market growth.”
Kludgeson recently revealed to CP-Africa that the KPad will be launching in Nigeria later this year. Check back with us for more updates.
