competitive data package, we continue delivering on our promise of
delivering internet access to consumers.”
A QualcommR SnapdragonT 200 processor powers the Steppa Tablet, designed to deliver a balance of performance, robust connectivity and better battery life.

tablet which means access to information, to mobile computing and to
mobile communication, at a price-point that is affordable,” Fairon said.
The 2 megapixel tablet runs Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
The Steppa Tablet is available at selected retail stores from end of November, for R999 on MTN’s prepaid price plans.
