According to Etisalat and the subsidiary of the Kharafi Group, the device “will be offered at a consumer-friendly price throughout Etisalat outlets, with special Internet offers available.”

With the Internet penetration in Egypt growing dramatically, and the ministry of communications reporting that smartphone use has grown to nearly 35 percent in the country, there is an urgent need for a locally developed tablet that is competitively priced. 

Etisalat Egypt CEO Saeel Al Hamli said he “was proud of the partnership with the Kharafi Group, which would inject confidence into the economy.” He added that “the tablet is a replacement option for textbooks for primary and secondary schools.”

Egypt’s Minister of Industry and Foreign Trade Hatem Saleh added that the partnership “could help Egypt move to a new stage of innovative and unconventional thinking.”
