The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now. In line with Microsoft’s new Microsoft 4Afrika Initiative, a program that aims to help improve Africa’s global competitiveness, Microsoft is launching a new Windows Phone called the Huawei 4Afrika. Microsoft has partnered with Huawei to bring the affordable device to students, small businesses, and even first-time smartphone owners in countries such as Angola, Egypt, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, and South Africa.
Available in blue, red, black, and white flavor colors, the Huawei 4Afrika is basically a variant of the Ascend W1. It sports a 4-inch 480 x 800 display, and it is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. Other features include front and rear-facing cameras and over 4GB of internal storage. Do note that the Huawei 4Afrika is the only the first among a series of “4Afrika” devices. By 2016, Microsoft aims to bring tens of millions of smart devices in the hands of African youth.
