Encipher has announced that they’re in talks with several content providers for the INYE tablet and Encipher TV.
Saheed Adepoju, Encipher’s co-founder, officially confirmed that they are in final discussions with Opera, Students Circle Network, EVCL, SocketWorks and Breadth of Life Ministries to provide content.
The Encipher-Opera deal would see the Opera browser bundled into the INYE tablet and Encipher TV.
At the moment, the INYE uses the Chrome Lite as its native browser, although there are indications that the Opera browser might become the default browser for the INYE, if the deal goes through.
Adepoju also disclosed that Students Circle Network, an educational social network would develop an android application to be installed on the INYE tablets that would allow students to collaborate and form study groups across the globe.
Also announced was a possible deal with EVCL, an Abuja-based animation company that produced the Nigerian animation series, Fino and Bino. You can watch the first episode on Youtube.
According to Adepoju,
“They are happy to provide contents to us and are in the process of finalizing a suitable monetization model to suit both parties…”
While it is too early to say whether or not these potential deals would be exclusive, it is very likely that one or two of them are exclusive.
