Ovim, the Android tablet produced by a partnership between two Nigerian companies, Fasmicro and Microscale Embedded, is due to hit the stores on the 20th of January 2011. However, the 7-inch tablet is now available by pre-order for just N45,000.
After Jan 10, 2011, the price goes up to N50,000.
Ovim runs Android 2.2 and is powered by the award-winning Marvell 166 800MHz processor. A peculiarity of Ovim is that it has a 3G Module built-in, meaning that you are spared the headaches of 3rd party driver compatibility. Another is that a home-brewed app store is on the way for the device, so Nigerians can purchase apps. The official Android Market does not currently support purchases from Nigeria.
