mi-Fone A350 resting

Last week, Kathleen Ndongmo dragged me out to a meeting with Alpesh Patel and Nikhil Patel, CEO and COO respectively at mi-Fone. mi-Fone is an African mobile phone brand with official presence in 17 African countries. Both Alpesh and Nikhil admit that regardless of their successes elsewhere, mi-Fone has not been active in THE African country, Nigeria. But now, they are ready. Nigeria is mi-Fone’s core focus this year, and you can expect to see more of their smartphone and tablet range in a store near you.

Here is what is easily the best photograph of Kathleen looking fabulous at the car park after our very fruitful meeting:

The photograph was taken by me (and Kathleen swears that I take good pictures). Seeing as she didn’t return the favour by taking me, here is one she pulled off nicely as Nikhil and I said goodbyes a few minutes earlier back inside:

In the meantime, the mi-Fone A350 (pictured above) is in the house and getting a review here on MOBILITY. Other models in the mi-Fone line-up will be stopping by too from time to time.


  1. Brilliant photos Mr Mo! MiFone is here to stay… if my vision is anything to go by, in a few years from now, everyone will be wondering where these guys had been all their mobile technology lives! 🙂

  2. “vision: the formation of a mental image of something that is not perceived as real and is not present to the senses”

    Is that what you mean or spiritual vision?

    Mr MO, mi-phone has better looking device than that supremely ugly a*s stuff you have up there. My sister has one as her alternate device and if it looked like what you have up there, I would have schemed to have it destroyed.
    I can say they are sturdy, heavy with an OK battery.

    If they are going to be a better Tecno then I will be glad to see them explode in Nigeria. if they would just tether in near-perfection and become complacent then I wish them…… well.

  3. Khene, yes; mi-Fone has better looking models than the A350. I mentioned to them that it is those models they should have at the fore-front of their PR strategy. I am sure that they are taking note.

    We were shown a couple of them – very sleek, catchy devices. Expect to see them here soon.
