Solar powered laptop … released in Russia

Samsung has released a solar powered laptop, that may offer a battery life of up to 14.5 hours. Where can I sign up, you ask? Take the next flight to Moscow, because these machines are being initially offered in Russia. Apparently they were unveiled at the Africa Regional Forum right here in Nairobi, but I am puzzled as to why Samsung didn’t take the next logical step and release them to the Kenyan market. After all, we seem to be exactly the right market for this product – a growing technology hub, lack of electrification in many parts of the country, and plenty of sunshine (although you wouldn’t know it from looking out the window at this very moment).
