The Mobility Nigeria team was present at mobiFEST 2010 held earlier today at Afe Babalola Auditorium at the University of Lagos.
We got a hands-on of Encipher’s upcoming Android-based tablet. Though a pre-production model, I loved the feel of the device and found web browsing up to par. We are looking forward to Encipher letting us have a go at the final release.
We also had a good feel of a production Samsung i9000 Galaxy smartphone – and what a device it is! From the gorgeous screen to the fluid interface, the Galaxy wowed both Dayo Olutunfese and myself. Unfortunately, without a QWERTY keyboard, it isn’t my type of device. Still, we are looking forward to reviewing the Galaxy here.
We were not allowed to take any pictures of the device, but the Samsung representative confirmed that the Galaxy will be available in stores across Lagos within the next two (2) weeks.
As for the event proper, I was part of the panel that addressed mobile devices and value added services. In addition, the Mobility Nigeria desk at the event was dedicated to promoting our ongoing WIN-a-smartphone promo.
