All is set for Huawei Ghana to introduce it latest smartphones onto the Ghanaian mobile market.
According to an official hint reaching the Biztechafrica news desk, Huawei will be launching its latest devices in a grand style on the Wednesday 24th October 2012 at the plush Movenpick Hotel in Accra, Ghana.
The Public Relations Manager for Huawei Ghana, Gideon Obeng, notes that Huawei Device believes that everyone can be the centre of information and that the world would be a better place if access and information barriers were knocked down. He says Huawei’s suite of mobile phones, mobile broadband devices and home devices is testimony to the company’s focus on providing user-friendly mobile internet experiences through ongoing innovation.
Huawei is looking to its smartphones to outpace global mobile growth rates and drive a consumer gadgets business that will rival its flagship telecoms gear in revenue. Based on more than two decades of success in the information and communications industry, and with our own channel expertise, operational capabilities and global partner resources, Huawei Device is transforming from a company that sells millions of devices in single transactions to large businesses, to a “Business-to-Customers” (B2C) brand that also sells individual devices directly to millions of people.
