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.

I started blogging about mobile in 2004 as a fun way to share my passion for gadgets and mobile services. My other interests include digital media, speaking and teaching, photography, travelling, and dancing.

    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! 🙂

      “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.

    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.
