China’s Kenxinda defends phone quality
TELECOMS| March 13, 2012, 10:11 a.m.
Kenxinda Mobile, one of the phone distributors the NCC cracked down on, says its stands by the quality of its phones.
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), cracked down on the premises of two handset firms in Lagos last month, because their devices did not have NCC approval.
Kenxinda Mobile marketing manager Ogbonna Chika said the company was committed to providing high quality mobile phones.
He pointed out that the company’s phones met international quality standards, held nearly 20% of the Nigerian market share and offered a 15-month warranty and services support.
The company was in the process of securing NCC approvals for its mobile phones, he said.
Kanxinda says 5% of its device sales come from Africa, with a presence in Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria, Congo, Zaire, Uganda, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
