Nokia unveils its first Android Tablet in Nigeria

Nokia, a global manufacturer of mobile devices has launched its latest product, the Nokia T20 tablet, the first-ever Android tablet by Nokia brand licensee HMD Global. TD Africa is to serve as the sole distributor of the tablet in Nigeria.

The Nokia device was born out of the need to remain productive and stay connected amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We realized there was an increase in collaboration apps for online meetings as a result of the pandemic. Now, when you think of trying to get more productive during presentations, a lot of people want those presentations on a larger landscape. So it was just ideal and the right time to look into that part by coming out with the tablet,” Adetayo Ogunnaike, marketing manager Nokia, said.

Nokia products known for their durability feature are centred around three pillars which include love, keep and trust.

“When it comes to ruggedness, everybody thinks about the brand,” Ogunnaike said.
