TRANSSION Holdings President, George Zhu said: “While in the process of deepening our mobile phone penetration in East Africa we have developed a dedicated focus on driving smart phone adoption to facilitate the global information age economy”.
Cabinet Secretary for Information, Communication and Technology Dr. Fred Matiang’i said that the Phantom Z’s entry into the market is a strong indicator that the sector is an exciting destination for new investors, who are keen to exploit the economic potential of the Kenyan market.
“The lion’s share of Kenya’s internet subscribers consume data through their mobile phones. Tecno Mobile has played a critical role in enabling Kenyans access to the internet through affordable hand held devices. I believe the Phantom Z will provide us with more value added services and facilitate the continued growth of the telecommunications sector,” he added.
The Minister further urged TECHNO mobile to work on cheaper phones so as to favour the lower class because most people in the country access internet through mobile devices rather than PCs.
He also urged the mobile phone company to work hand in hand with the local universities in making apps for their phones so as to contribute entirely to the Kenyan economy through job creation.
