Congolese inventor has a solution to get rural Africa emailing

by 

Consider how email has changed the world. It is estimated around 269 billion emails are sent daily, with the average office worker receiving 121 every 24 hours. But for some especially in many parts of Africa email technology is just not attainable. The cost of data (which is higher in areas with poor infrastructure) makes emailing unaffordable for large groups of people essentially excluding them from many digital benefits. However, one inventor from the Democratic Republic of Congo believes he has developed a device that can make emailing over 100-times cheaper than it would be via cellular networks.
