In furtherance of a recent statement by its Chief Executive Officer, Mamadou Coulibaly, to put a smartphone in the hand of every Liberian, Orange Liberia has launched a massive device fair at its headquarters on Capital Bye-Pass, according to a press release yesterday.
Officially launching the fair, which is being called the Orange Christmas Devices Bonanza, the Chief Sales Officer of Orange, Isaac Muthama, elaborated that the fair would be open until December 31.
He said that the fair was offering hundreds of devices at discounted prices from a wide range of brands and prices starting as low as US$25, which made it the biggest devices fair Liberia has ever hosted.
“We have a great 4G LTE network, which is now in ten cities outside of Monrovia, so we are rolling out these devices at lowered prices so that more Liberians can enjoy the benefits of the Internet on this high-speed network,” said Muthama.
The Corporate Communications Strategist for Orange Liberia, Dr. Kimmie Weeks, presented several of the devices starting with the Mobiwire Halona for US$25 with a free My Clique Pack included, which he praised as “a beautiful, sleek and incredible smartphone.”
He went on to say “considering that such an amazing smartphone is priced at such a low amount, I suspect that this will become one of the most popular phones in Liberia.” The next device after the Mobiwire Halona is the Orange Rise 32, a 4” smartphone for US$35 that comes with a free My Digital Pack.
Dr. Weeks explained that the company was also discounting several mid-range products including the Tecno N9 at US$69, instead of US$84; the Tecno DroidPad 7D 4G tablet at US$129, instead of US$150, with 10 GB of free data; and the Tecno Phantom 8, which he described as a cross between an iPhone and a high-end Samsung for only US$349, with a free Orange Infinity Pack.
“We also have devices for customers who are looking for something more luxurious,” revealed Weeks, who then showed off several iPhone products including the iPhone 8, the iPad, and the Apple watch.
He highlighted that Orange was the only GSM company authorized to sell Apple products in Liberia, because Apple has validated the quality, reliability, and speed of the Orange network.
The Orange Christmas Devices Bonanza will continue until December 31 or while supplies last.
Weeks not only encouraged Liberians to visit the fair and take advantage of the deeply discounted prizes but also reminded Orange customers that the final winner for the Orange Christmas, which started in the October promotion, would be announced during a major press conference at the fair on December 23.
“Somebody will be walking away with a brand new 4×4 Toyota Rav4 valued at US$35,000, so we encourage our customers to recharge frequently this week to stand a chance to win,” Dr. Weeks said.
