Zedd mobile launched a range of mobile phones two years ago in Nigeria. As far back as mid 2012, their phones were still seen here and there, but they seem to be nowhere to be found anymore. The official domain, ZeddMobile.com has been taken over by a UK Mobile Online Casino Entertainment Guide, and their Facebook Page has only 6 likes (unless there is another page that I am aware of). Online retailer, Jumia, does have one Zedd phone listed on their store.
I never handled a Zedd phone, so I have no experiences to share, but a 2012 article on Nigerian Technology Weblog suggests that Zedd was involved in shady marketing, presenting false specs with at least one of their models:
There was a spec sheet beside it which tuned out to be a total deception. The phone claimed an display resolution of 1280 x 720 and 1.2GHz processor. I was however suspicious because the phone is priced at N12,500.
Some of the comments that follow that article also show some level of dissatisfaction by buyers of that particular phone.
Who has any insider information about the status of Zedd? Are they still alive and re-tooling or are they dead?
