Nokia launches maiden dual SIM phones in Ghana
Nokia Africa, a subsidiary to Nokia Corporation, a leading mobile phone mobile and fixed telecom network operator and supplier, on Monday launched its maiden Dual Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) range of phones in Accra.
They are the Nokia X101, C2-00 and the C2-03.
Mr Ludovic Falcou, Nokia Country Manager, who described the Nokia phones as “the most affordable, durable and genuine product” among their competitive peers, said the new products were the result of long empirical market research.
He said Nokia had over the years built a reputation for durability, innovation and consistency, adding that, management had to “chart a long course of waiting” to produce a quality and innovative product that satisfied the needs of its customers.
He said: “By introducing the dual SIM, Nokia has again proved that it is a listening brand. The good news is that unlike before, you can now have the convenience of two SIMs in not just a phone, but on a Nokia phone.”
Mr Falcou said the Nokia X101 and C2-00 were already available on the Ghanaian market while the C2-03 would be officially outdoored in three weeks.
Mr Olumide Balogun, Product Manager of Nokia Africa, expressed the hope that the introduction of the Nokia range of Dual SIM phones would meet the growing demand of its customers for convenience, quality and innovation as well as put operators of counterfeit phones out of business.
He advised customers to look out for Nokia warranty stickers and SMS checks when purchasing any of the company’s products.
