Nigeria: Ojiji Mobile Devices Introduce First Indigenous Smartphone

Ojiji is an igbo word which means "handy" or "handheld". Now, the name applies to a brand of an android device which has the ability to satisfy consumers' basic and intermediary needs. Manufactured by a firm in South Korea owned by a Nigerian living there, the Ojiji Fiery range, the manufacturer explained, is being introduced into the Nigerian market because of the increased demand in the use of android devices and smartphones. The Ojiji mobile devices are divided into 3 namely:

Ojiji Fiery 4 which gives you a smart power that is affordable as it satisfies your basic and intermediary needs for digital power.

Ojiji Fiery 5 gives you a classic smart power with contemporary innovations at an unexpected speed with increased fun.

Ojiji Fiery Note 5 leaves you with a premium smart power with both contemporary and present technology, designed for winners to migrate seamlessly, the odds notwithstanding.

New Media met with the staff of Ojiji Nigeria Limited during the just-concluded maiden edition of the "Made-in-Aba" Fair which was held in Abuja. One of them, Vivian Ogbuokiri who spoke with this reporter affirmed the phones are durable, and have long battery life and lots of applications.

The Ojiji Power Bank is a hand-held device that can be used to charge a BlackBerry, Iphone, Ipad, or even an Android phone. "If properly charged, the power bank could last for a whole day and it takes just about six hours to charge it completely", Ogbuokiri said. The guaranty for the Ojiji power bank is one year.

The features of the device include a four-gigabyte memory capacity, 512 ram, duo core five-megapixel high-definition camera with one-megapixel in front, 4.3 wide visual (800 by 40) high definition display and wi-fi hotspot.

The ingenuity of a Nigerian to manufacture an indigenous mobile device shows that Nigeria is also moving ahead with global technological advancements. This will help to improve the economy of the country as well as giving Nigeria a place among technologically advanced countries in the world.
