Rlg Communications Limited from Ghana launched their latest product – Uhuru Tablet PC which is a both a Tablet and a Notebook a couple of weeks ago.

By the kind courtesy of Donald Ward of iROKKO Concepts, I got one delivered for reviewing over the weekend.

The Rlg Uhuru device and power units comes very nicely packaged with a custom designed box sporting a carry handle. Inside the main box, the device is supported with a cork at each side preventing it from damaging in case the box hits the ground and the another box for the power units.

Concept of Uhuru

The concept of Rlg’s Uhuru is based on a convertible concept, which is the combination of a tablet and a keyboard docking system.

The device runs on Microsoft’s newest operating system – Windows 8 and Intel’s Core i5 processor and can be used as a Tablet or a Notebook, which also features a touch operation with fingers or a stylus and has a keyboard dock that comes with it.

Connectivity

The Uhuru device has two physical buttons for volume control, as well as ON/OFF, positioning sensor, and WLAN keys. In addition, the tablet is also one of the devices with the most interfaces. There’s an RJ-45 port for LAN connectivity and two audio ports for Speaker/Mic making it easy for video conferencing via Skype which is pre-installed.

Keyboard

The keyboard that comes with the docking system makes typing on the device very easy and flexible considering how the compact the whole device is. All the expected keys on a normal Windows PC are present, including the Windows Start and context menu buttons. There’s even a Caps Lock light.

Warranty

The Rlg Uhuru comes with a One-Year Guaranty against any manufacturing defects. Repairs and replacements will be made free of charge during this period, therefore the Service Warranty voucher must be kept and produced by consumers/buyers of the product.

Verdict

The Rlg Uhuru offers an awesome dual-display design with a convertible tablet for the mobile user at a fairly high price for the average Ghanaian. Starting at GHc 1,950.00 (USD 1,020.00; GBP 675.00 and EUR 767.00), the Rlg Uhuru compared to the Microsoft Surface which starts from USD750.00 (GHc 1,435.00) running at almost everything as the latter is expensive and less affordable.
