Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

The first ever “made-in-Ghana” mobile phones have been launched in Accra.

The r-series set of handsets come in various shapes and forms. It ranges from the simple r5 which costs GH¢31 to the top of the range executive looking r72 at GH¢120, which comes equipped with television and radio, bluetooth, an internet browser and a 12-mega-pixel camera.

The phones are assembled by RLG Communications. Ahead of the launch, Joy Business took three of the handsets to sample some opinions, and members of the public were pleasantly surprised the phones were locally manufactured.

Some phone dealers Joy News spoke to were equally surprised. Rami at the Sony Center at Osu however believes the manufacturers would have to find a way to penetrate a market that has already established brands.

RLG officials are however confident the brand will be successful. He said the company’s biggest strength is its local presence and an after-sales service to support the one-year warranty on the phones.

According to officials, the company has already entered into fruitful partnerships with some of the mobile phone companies to ensure it produces the best quality products.

Joy Business has learnt the handsets have been on sale in Dubai for some time now.
