Chief marketing officer, MTN Nigeria, Mr. Raul De has described the launch of the world’s first 3G smart feature phone known as the MTN Smart, as a strategic effort to bridge the rural-urban connectivity gap.
Speaking at the launch of the affordable phone, he said MTN is keeping to its promise of making access to advanced digital services a reality for everyone with the compact, high-quality device available at a very affordable price.
This first of its kind 3G KaiOS smart feature phone, allows customers to upgrade from a typical feature phone with only voice and text capabilities, to a fully connected device with a fast 3G internet connection, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, dual SIM 3G capabilities.
It has an App Store and comes pre-loaded with the most popular Apps available in the market today, including but not limited to WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google Maps.
