Launch planned for made-in-Nigeria phones

wo Nigerian-made mobile phone brands could be launched in the country by next month, according to the country’s ‘Phone and Allied Products Dealers Association’ (PAPDAN).

The president of the association, Godfrey Iyke Nwosu, said the made-in-Nigeria phone brands are expected to be the outcome of a joint venture among 20 Nigerian investors who have pooled resources to bring the devices to market.

The two new phone brands, according to him, will be called ‘iQ’ and ‘MaxTel’.

PAPDAN, a group representing the interest of phone dealers in Ikeja Computer Village, the nation’s largest market cluster for technology products and services, has a membership strength of over 3,000 businesses.

Members of PAPDAN occupy a crucial place in the retail end of the tech market, as they sell in excess of 2 million units of phones and allied devices monthly into Nigeria and several economies across West Africa.
