Jumia has a Facebook advert that makes for light comic relief. You are being offered a Lumia 520 with a 4.5-inch display, 1.5GHz processor, and a 41 megapixel camera. Now, that would be a swell offer, and I would have yelled, “Go get yours right away before the deal ends!” Problem is that this Lumia 520 costs N119,000, which means it isn’t a good deal at all. But, just for a moment, consider a Lumia 520 with a 41 megapixel camera on sale for say N19,000 instead. Yes? That would have been the mobile deal of life.
Here is a crop of the Jumia advert as seen on Facebook this morning:
Yes, of course; someone in the advertising department at Jumia goofed. We know which Nokia Lumia should be printed on that advert. Happy Monday, folks. May God bless your hustle.
