Orange Telkom Kenya has recently introduced the Samsung N130 laptop, a cost-effective yet feature-rich device, to its retail outlets nationwide. Samsung is widely recognized for its durable laptops, known for their exceptional keyboard and touchpad. This strategic move by mobile service providers in Kenya comes as no surprise, as they seek new revenue streams due to declining returns from voice calls.

While Orange Telkom holds the third position in terms of market share, its robust infrastructure, particularly in data services, cannot be overlooked. However, the company has faced significant challenges, particularly in its cable networks across the country, resulting in ongoing setbacks.

These unfortunate circumstances have impacted Orange Telkom Kenya's landline segment, with its GSM segment facing intense competition from the top two providers, Safaricom and Airtel.

Now, let's take a look at the specifications of the Samsung N130 laptop offered by Orange Telkom:
  • Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 160GB capacity hard drive
  • WiFi 802.11b/g/n WLAN
  • Windows XP Home operating system
  • Up to 6 hours of battery life

The Samsung N130 is available at Orange retail shops for a price of Kshs. 15,300. This price includes a Wezesha voucher worth Kshs. 9,600 (subject to approval by the university coordinator) and a free external DVD writer.

With its affordability and impressive specifications, the Samsung N130 laptop offered by Orange Telkom presents an attractive option for customers seeking reliable and budget-friendly computing solutions.
