Ghana’s answer to the tablet PC is reported to be selling so well that the company is set to launch its own smartphone shortly too.

The K-Pad, a home-developed touch screen tablet computing device, was brought to market by Alltel Limited in January this year. K-Pads are available in several sizes and run on the Android operating system.

Kofi Kludgeson, the Executive Chairman of Alltel Limited, says the company has seen interest in the lower-cost tablet PC from both across Africa and abroad. In just three months, the product “has hit the world market in a mighty way,” he says.

Next to market, he says, will be the K-Phone dual SIM smart phone running an Android OS.
