There’s nothing wrong with a bit of showmanship, but it’s also nice to let the products speak for themselves now and again.
The humble handset you see above is the answer to a question posed here some 20 months ago: “Is a high-functioning Google-free Android phone even possible?”
I was barely off the plane when I procured a local SIM card; here’s everything else I saw pertaining to mobile phones in Nairobi and beyond.

For Android users seeking a Google-free experience it’s nice to know there’s another way to get at least some of their favourite apps.
