BBM is spreading its wings unapologetically; it has now made its way to the MTN Steppa, which is a recently introduced entry-level smartphone. The announcement was made by MTN South Africa.
To access the app, users will visit Google Play store using their Steppa smartphone, search for BBM and download it. Whichever data charges one chooses to apply, it will not use a single cent of your money as the download is absolutely free.
“For our existing BBM users, this means that they can find even more people they want to talk to on BBM. It is as easy as checking out the Find Friends feature to see who has joined BBM that they might know,” says Mike Fairon, head of Product at MTN.
The MTN Steppa is available in selected retail stores for R499($46.243) on the MTN prepaid price plans. It is the most affordable smartphone in South Africa, breaking the affordability barrier of smartphones to deliver internet access and a high performance mobile phone handset to South Africans at an affordable price.
