Lately we Ethiopians are feeling like we have gone backwards in many aspects. We face the worst drought in about 30 yrs. We have got issues with our grand dam project, there is no enough transportation, water, and energy source. The list goes on.
But here is our Christmas gift, a light in the darkness by a fellow Ethiopian, Genet Ayele. She has given us a laptop with the first Amharic Keyboard. This is a great news for Ethiopia, a country that has more that 80 dialects, one of which is Amharic. Amharic uses its own phonetics and until now we have been using Software with English keyboard in order to write Amharic text.
That is about to change with Ethiopass. Ethiopass is a laptop made in collaboration with FUJITSU Notebook. It comes with Intel® CoreTM i5-5200U processor and AMD RadeonTM R7 M260 graphics card with 2GB dedicated memory, in addition to the Amharic keyboard. From what we have gathered, the Price is 999 euros and offering free shipment until the end of January to all EU countries and Switzerland.
We like it and Marry Christmas to you too Genet.
