Nigerian Made MINDA Phones, Tablets As Good As Nokia, Samsung

Makers of mobile telephones and tablets may soon be kicked out of the market by 'better' made in Nigeria MINDA Tablets and phones says Nigeria's Supervising Minister for the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, Darius Ishaku.

The new range of mobile devices, being assembled by 100 graduates of the Calabar Skills Acquisition Centre in Cross River State with the assistance of an Irish firm, include smartphones and tablets.

The Minister told journalists that he uses the devices and found them as good as any in the market.

"I use them myself and it is of the same quality with my Samsung. I can browse with it I can do a whole lot of activities with the Minda phones. It is even more user friendly," he said.

He encouraged members of the public to patronise the MINDA devices.

"We are hoping to be more aggressive in making the public aware that these Minda phones and tablet PCs are exactly like any other products you see in the markets," he said.

MINDA is an acronym for Made in Niger Delta Area.

So when next you go out looking for a new mobile device, you might want to think Nigerian and think MINDA.
