the informal computer

Approximately 6 million computers were sold in Nigeria's informal sector last year, the Lagos newspaper This Day reports. More Nigerians are looking to purchase laptops, to take advantage of wireless set ups available through mobile phone services. In a related development, the mobile phone company MTN increased its share of the Nigerian market to 40 percent. Nigeria's mobile phone companies make the bulk of their money through informal kiosks and hawkers who sell recharge cards and air time.
