It will amaze you to know that South African 2nd largest mobile telecoms network MTN has announced and in fact officially launched her self owned dual SIM mobile android phone under the nickname Steppa.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon processor powered android device Steppa has a 3.5 inch touch screen display, 2MP camera with video recording, Opera Mini for internet browsing, FM radio, long battery life and comes with a standard free Social Networking Bundle for the first three months. The smartphone has an AVG anti-virus and also provides loss and theft protection through the ability to track and control.

It comes along with a 512MB of RAM, an FM radio and a 1,300mAh battery which is specced to last for up to 627 minutes of talk time. It also features Google Play integration, HSDPA, Bluetooth 3.0 and A-GPS. But one thing I don’t really fancy about this android smartphone is its single-core 1GHz CPU and ships with the Gingerbread version of Android.

We are meant to understand that steppa was currently announced at South Africa for a price rate of R499 which equivalents about $50. This is a nice price for such a device and it’s regarded the cheapest smartphone in the South African mobile market as at time of post.

Won’t this be great if it’s introduced also to Nigerian and other African mobile markets? I guess it would definitely compete with some brands of the Tecno Smartphones.

  4. Don’t mind MTN they are very greedy and stingy people since they are networking company and have been on the business, why don’t they go for a nice batter Android phone with 4.2 version and some others high stuff on it? At least even if it cost up to #15.000 Naira with some specials things on it, Nigerians will buy with pleasures known fully well its from MTN and also with trust. Thanks
