TECNO, a leading mobile phone brand in Africa, and Opera Software, leading browser provider, today unveiled their partnership to offer a co-branded Opera Mini browser to TECNO’s users in Africa. TECNO, as the NO.1 dual SIM mobile phone brand in Africa, TECNO has always been paying great attention to customers’ experience and endeavoring to provide them with the most suitable products by adopting the latest innovative technology.
“TECNO is currently experiencing the fastest growth period we’ve ever seen. We hope that, our products can provide more and more people with better and better internet experience in Africa,” says Jason Liu, the Marketing Director of TECNO Telecom. “Our initiative to co-brand this well-regarded web browser is key to TECNO ensuring that the users of our phones can get connected whenever they want, as well as achieving our business development targets in Africa.”
The Opera Mini browser provides users with advanced compression technology, which shrinks down webpages by up to 90% before they reach the phone. This allows users to expand the web experience dramatically with each and every megabyte they consume, while keeping costs down.
“Africa is in the midst of a mobile-browsing transformation and mobile phones are the most important means for Africans to access the web. This initiative gives TECNO users in this area the advantages of a great surfing experience that is fast and affordable,” says Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software.
