iDroid smart phones is growing its infrastructure really fast into the retail markets all across the globe. Their latest stop is Uganda.
The 3D phone was launched Monday at Sheraton Hotel, Uganda by Minister of State for Housing, Sam Engola.
The launched phone has some of the latest technologies “designed to let users in, out and back to life”.
“iDroid phone combines basic everyday tasks-tasks associated with e-mail, browsing the web, playing games, watching movies, reading the e-books and sharing pictures; so people can do more in fewer steps,” said Joe Qureshi, a co-founder and CEO of iDROID USA.
The smart phones have an inbuilt app – iDroid Hub that allows users to inquire about anything from the phone makers. The phone also has an app that is capable of tracking similar devices within a certain range.
“Can the phone track a similar device that may be as far as Masaka? If you prove that now, I am ready to buy myself a handset now,” asked a
man from the audience who looked to be in his 50’s.
Qureshi maintained the phone is in position to do the said function though he couldn’t perform the request for boosting of sales.
The MC of the night, Isaac Rucci joked by recommending men to buy the phone for their girlfriends. “You’ll be in position to track her wherever she is!”
