Vodafone Ghana has once again proven its leadership in innovation with the launch of the BlackBerry (BB) Z10, one week after its global launch.
The BB Z10 will allow customers on the Vodafone network to be the first to own the latest handset which has created consumer frenzy all over the world. Vodafone is the first network to offer it to their customers along with 1.5 GB of data.
A statement signed by Uche Ofodile, Chief Marketing Officer at Vodafone Ghana said, the new BlackBerry Z10 is a complete re-design from the traditional ‘BB’ and introduces new user-friendly features.
The statement said for the first time, users do not have to subscribe to the BlackBerry service before experiencing the full capabilities of the handset.
“The BlackBerry Messenger service has also been revamped with added features such as video calling and screen share, which allows users to share their handset screen and camera view with their friends.”
Another innovative feature is the ‘BlackBerry Hub’, where users can customise their handset to their favourite applications on one page and the enhanced security features also makes the ‘BB Z10’ an invaluable business tool.
The statement said Vodafone was committed to bringing the most innovative devices to their customers, adding “We know our customers are driven by innovation and like to set the pace for others to follow.”
“They expected Vodafone to be the first to deliver one of the most sought after handsets in the world and we have not disappointed. I have seen the handset and can say that our customers will not be disappointed,” the statement stated.
