Android Goes on Safari with Sub-Saharan Africa Developer Challenge


As Android strengthens its hold on the global smartphone market, it continues to expand in areas where wireless technology is still developing but becoming increasingly relevant. One such location is Sub-Saharan Africa, where mobile devices are gaining ground as not only communications devices but as the main platform for accessing the web. Check out the growth in search requests for “Android” occurring in Sub-Saharan Africa:

In support of over 10,000 developers and tech enthusiasts from the region with whom Google has been in contact with over the past year, Sub-Saharan Africa is getting its very own edition of the Android Developer Challenge. The winner of the contest will be announced on September 12th at G-Kenya, and will be the recipient of an Android phone and $25,000 USD. For more information head over to the source link below.

  2. Lots of software development takes place in Africa. In fact, the top developers of mobile apps come from Africa. search “mobile” “africa” to see

  3. this is really good news for Africa and the rest of the world. technology should be in the hands of everyone because we all benefit from it.
