Post on Slok Mobile phone updated on 28th September, 2016. See update below
The technology industry in Nigeria is rapidly growing and in the near future, new made in Nigeria mobile phones will attest to this fact.
An indigenous company “Slok Holding Group of Companies” owned by one of Nigerians richest entrepreneurs Orji Uzor Kalu, a former state governor is set to roll out the first made in Nigeria mobile phones.
Slok Group is a company with business interest in maritime, aviation, construction, publishing, manufacturing, etc and now communication technology.
The company’s founder and chairman Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, while dropping the hint about the new made in Nigeria Slok mobile phone in Lagos, on Tuesday, said the Slok mobile phone had been built to be sold in Nigeria and across Africa.
Kalu, who said the phone would have the lowest end of the mobile phone market, assured Nigerians that the presence of the phone in the market would meet their yearnings for the type of utility phone they have long desired.
Very soon, the Slok Group is rolling out the first ever indigenously made mobile phone called Slok Mobile. It is a phone we have built to be sold in Nigeria and across Africa.
Orji said, “I am rolling out the Slok mobile phone in less than eight weeks time. We will have the lowest end of the mobile phone market. The Slok mobile phone has all the packages of a modern phone, it is going to be a utility phone that Nigerians have been looking for.”
“We are a truly African company but proudly Nigerian. So, this is what is coming on board. In the next eight weeks, the phones will be on the streets of Nigeria. We are going to roll out the phones on the Nigerian, Congo, Guinea, South Africa and other African markets,” he said.
According to Kalu, the phone has patent right in the United States and other countries as well as Europe.
This is the first time a Nigerian conglomerate will be rolling out a phone to take over the market.
This is the true spirit of entrepreneurship. The Total Entrepreneurs also found out that local engineers and entrepreneurs were involved in the development of the Slok mobile phone.
It is a pity that Orji could not give a picture sample of what Nigerians should be expecting, but common, eight weeks is not that far. So by the second week of November 2014, a new mobile phone (this time locally made) will hit the Nigeria market and we all hope it will be competitive enough to capture the heart of Nigerians.
The Total Entrepreneurs will update this post as soon as the sample pictures are made available.
Follow this post to be the first to see what the Slok mobile phones will look like and what the price range will be and remember, always patronize local goods and help grow our manufacturing industries.
