TD Mobile has revealed that in Accra the company has officially launched its operations in Ghana and has also been appointed as the exclusive distributors of Nokia mobile phones in the West African country, a development that both Nokia and TD Mobile believe will deepen the rate of technology diffusion and mobile devices penetration in Ghana.
The announcement was made at an event held at the prestigious Villa Monticello Boutique Hotel, Airport Residential Area, Accra and saw a number of key government functionaries from the Ministry of Communication, Ministry of Business Development, Ministry of Trade and Industry, captains of industries; representatives of major telecoms companies and stakeholders in the smartphone reseller and consumer space in attendance.
The launch of TD Mobile in Ghana has led the company to believe that they can aid in the rise of smartphone penetration across the country. They added that hopes are also high for improved access to genuine quality mobile devices at the right prices for the majority of Ghanaians.
TD Mobile also announced the signing of a major partnership agreement with HMD Global as sole distributors of Nokia mobile devices including the Nokia 8 and the re-born version of the iconic Nokia 3310.
