NAIROBI, KENYA: Lawyers are now able to access cases, Kenya Gazette and the constitution from mobile devices.

The move follows Monday signing of a memorandum of understanding between Samsung, Kenya Law Reports and Strathmore University for development of a mobile phone application which enables legal fraternity to access the materials from their Samsung brand phones.

“Learning, entertainment, social networking, health services, and financial services  are going mobile,”   Samsung Electronics East Africa, Chief Operating Officer  Robert Ngeru’  noted

“As a result, applications have emerged as a fundamental part of this evolution, as more and more consumers want to access relevant content on the go on their mobile devices.”

The MOU outlines a framework for Kenya Law Reports to tap into Samsung’s innovative digital convergence technologies to enhance its process efficiencies, and ultimately, create a world-class educational environment for the Law professional.

Mr Ngeru added that Samsung is in tune with these dynamics, and recognizes the pivotal role of mobile phones in facilitating innovation-based services. “At Samsung, our core business is apps and technology solutions, but we still rely on different stakeholders to help provide content; hence our interest in building a strong mutually beneficial relationship with Strathmore through our iLab partnership. Samsung recognizes the need for partnership because fast-growing portfolios of mobile applications would be fuelled by efficient developer ecosystem”.

Samsung Electronics signed a deal with Strathmore iLab Africa to train and nurture students to come up with applications that run on the Android platform and to carry out research in technology trends across Africa.

The collaboration between Samsung and the industry stakeholders is, geared at boosting local technology entrepreneurship prospects.
