    When it comes to technology, Africans want the best but most times we do not have the framework to fully utilise the functions of the latest gadgets. Besides affordability, Nyati tells it as it is in this very insightful video. Watch out for 'Tech Savvy', Emoire's LuvTv series on choosing the right gadgets for your needs as well as reviews on usage in West Africa. Enjoy...

    Yes connectivity is expansive for the vast majority. However, it is common to see smartphones and other mobile devices all around.
