  6. Plz does it makes video calls via skype....?

    1. Yes. It's stated in the article already

  7. Akin, I called that number and I got a quote higher than what you indicated. Considering I look to purchase ten (10) pieces, do you have any other retailer who I can contact and can be relied on as being honest?

    1. May not necessarily mean that the people you called were not being honest. Its a distributor office. price may have changed and I may not have the updated price list published here.
      However, I know Jumia online store, slot and konga are also selling this device. You could check with them if its cheaper than the previous store.
