Mr Agambire said most of Rlg’s MGS1 laptops would come with in-build modem where the modem would be connected with the laptop and that what would be needed is to buy a SIM card to browse.

He said Rlg quality assurance would increase because of its partnership with Microsoft and that the company had recently cut the sod to begin work on its assembly plants which would employ about 30,000 youth.

Mr Emmanuel Onyeje, Country Manager for Microsoft Anglophone West Africa, said his outfit is honored to partner with Rlg adding that the relationship is an international one and that its outfit placed more emphasis on technology because windows is the heart of Microsoft.
