s new iPhone 4 has been brought to market in Kenya through service provider Orange. It will retail exclusively at Orange customer experience centres and dealer outlets in the 16GB and 32GB variations.
Orange Chief Executive Officer Mickael Ghossein said the decision to launch the iPhone 4 in Kenya was based on an increased thirst for data and entertainment- based mobile phones among Kenyan customers.
Consumers are more sophisticated, demanding more data offerings as opposed to the voice services that have hitherto been the hallmark of mobile telephony. The handset is no longer just a communicating tool. It is now a source of entertainment, gaming gadget, and an increasing effective business tool,”
The new iPhone comes with a 5 megapixel camera;
a clearer display, HD video recording, multitasking, video calls and many other features that will make the I-Phone 4 experience better than you can get on any other phones.
As you know, the iPhone is not designed to be just a phone. It comes with many entertainment and lifestyle features- with the capacity to store the music you like and movies that you can watch while travelling.
The customer will therefore select the I-Phone 4 that suits them best based on these capabilities. In terms of colours, you have a choice between black and white, for you to choose the colour that represents your persona,”
Statistics from the US show that the iPhone is the highest selling smart phone in the market, owing to its ability to blend in as both a business and a lifestyle phone. According to GSMarena.com,
the iPhone 4 will probably outsell the older generations of iPhone.
