A number of Nigerian indigenous startups are represented this year and they include Truppr, VacantBoards and Wecyclers. Also are some Finland based startups founded or co-founded by Nigerians such as Irofit, Internly and ClipMe.

In a rather interesting development, Nokia made return by launching an android based tablet called the Nokia N1. The device is however available in China only for now.
