I was a participant at MTN Nigeria’s Ideas Forum held at the Southern Sun, Ikoyi yesterday. It was a very engaging time during which we discussed mobile apps development in Nigeria and MTN’s proposed mobile app store, as well as ways that the ecosystem can be enhanced.
I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with a number of great guys from strategic companies, including Opera and Microsoft.
I have it on good authority from the Microsoft official that Windows Phone is coming to Nigeria officially – and soon. So many people have been asking me this question, so I guess your blood pressures can return to normal now – or go up even more from the anticipation.
Oh, and I was told that the Nigerian launch is not going to be soft, so expect a lot of push from Microsoft here.
Meanwhile, do not forget that my written review of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango is on the way.
