AG Mobile launches its mobile devices in Nigeria

African mobile technology brand AG Mobile has launched in Nigeria. AG Mobile is one of Africa’s first original design manufacturers and was the first South African company to build a mobile device in 2007.
Nigeria is the ninth African country where AG Mobile phones and tablets are now available. Furthermore, Nigeria is the first country in which AG Mobile has launched independent of a retail partner.
According to AG Mobile CEO, Anthony Goodman, the company’s Nigeria launch is part of the company’s expansion strategy to sell affordable and quality products while investing in markets that offer mutually beneficial opportunities. “As a proudly African brand, we believe that we will bring great value to Nigeria. We’ve started by building relationships with well-respected brands such as MTN, Etisalat, Ringo and Jumia; creating employment opportunities; and supporting the networks’ objectives to advance Nigeria’s connectivity from 2G to 3G.”
“While our initial marketing roll-out covers Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano, our reach is national. Our Android feature-rich devices are available online via Jumia, from MTN and Ringo outlets, as well as independent dealers across the country. We’re also completing the installation of our first retail space at the Ringo Arena in the Computer Village in Lagos; and will be rolling out similar outlets where customers can experiment with live devices before they purchase them. Any repair issues will be administered at an in-country repair center,” Goodman added.
“With good initial sales and a growing following on social media, we’re confident that AG Mobile will find its way into the hearts of Nigerians, just as it has across the African continent,” Goodman concluded.
