  1. @AndroidNigeria,Thanks for your comment.I think they understand what Nigerians really want and they are constantly providing that need.Most Nigerians want a smartphone,they also should be able to afford one.That’s just it!

  2. Tecno is simply great. Still baffled at how they were able to come up with innovative products. Most people I know have now embraced Tecno and those who haven’t are planning to.

    Thanks Ken for this update.
