Tecno Telecom mobile history -Tecno mobile in Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Ghana, etc.

Posted on Mar 23 2013 - 4:45pm by In-house Geek

Here is a history of Tecno Mobile which launched as a startup in 2006, crept into Africa amidst other far heavier mobile phone manufacturing companies like Nokia, Samsung, etc. and today Tecno is now a giant of its own in Africa as far as mobile phone manufacturing and sale is concerned!


Exactly a week ago, I published my visit and interaction with the Sales manager of Gionee mobile, Mr. Pound who is a Chinese.  Today I was with the official Sales representative of Tecno Mobile in Aba, Abia State, Nigeria, Mr Samuel Ajayi, whose open mind and personality I appreciate so much.

I was glad to learn that Mymobnet! Is appreciated by these Telecom Giants and it gives me great joy and encouragement.

In case you don’t know, TECNO TELECOM LIMITED was established in July 2006 in Hong Kong, China and they started operations in Nigeria the following year (2007) launching their first mobile phone model T205 in same year.

Presently they run an official facebook page which is /TECNOMobileNigeria

Tecno claims to be the first mobile company that introduced dual SIM phones in Nigeria, Ghana and Kenya.

The official description of TECNO Telecom from tecnotelecom.com says:

TECNO TELECOM LIMITED, established in July 2006 in Hong Kong, is a comprehensive mobile phone manufacturer specializing in R&D, manufacturing, sales and service. With years of development, it has now become one of the major mobile phone suppliers in the world and one of the largest mobile phone manufacturers in China.

In the year of 2008, TECNO decided to focus on Africa as its key market and accordingly launched TECNO brand strategy. Through three years of efforts, TECNO has achieved initial success with its outstanding and unique marketing strategy, and has now become one of the most popular mobile phone brands in many countries in Africa. Besides, it has been recognized as the NO.1 Dual SIM mobile phone brand in those countries with TECNO branches, including Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana, etc. In 2010, TECNO has ascended into the top three mobile phone brands in Africa.

Tecno’s presence is spread all over the regions of their presence and in all the states of Nigeria, many of the resellers are official dealers so walk in freely to any certified shop near you.
