  1. Please who published this article. It has shameless copy and paste written all over it. for the love of God, how many people in Nigeria know the exchange rate of The India Rupees to the Naira, the author should atleast converted to Naira before posting

  2. Sigh.

    Dear martinkem,

    you do know what a press release is; right? The above is a press release. Of course, its meant to be copied and pasted.
    you are aware that this site is no longer just a Nigeria-centric site; aren’t you? This is the Mobility blog; not MobilityNigeria. We cover global mobile news

    Feel free to do the currency conversion if you are interested in importing the devices from India.

  3. @Yomi ok if you say so, but it’d be help if you can try to localize the news/press release. inasmuch as mobility is now an international blog, most of it’s readership is Nigeria so such info would really come in handy

  4. Conversion- rupee to dollar

    1.0000 INR = 0.02087 USD

    Indian Rupee (INR) US Dollar (USD)
    1 INR = 0.02087

    USD 1 USD = 47.9180 INR

  5. India is not the only country where these devices can sell, motorola should ship to africa as well. from the specs and prices, these will be hot cakes in the nigerian market for those craving for Android but can’t afford the expensive ones on the shelves.
