An American mobile smart phone manufacturer sets its foot step on the Ugandan soil on March 2nd 2015 and in no time it takes the market by storm.
After co-founder Jawad Qureshi makes the introductory appeal on a locally popular Luganda language TV station called Bukedde, the sales volume of the iDROID Royal V7 and Tango A5 shoot through the roof, leading the company to give birth to the First ever FREE smart phone “iDROID Royal V4” given by Africell Uganda once a client purchased only 750 MB of data from it for 1 year.
The iDROID smart phones have taken over the hearts of many Ugandans. Just 10 months after its launch in Uganda, iDROID has invented the first ever Luganda language smart phone for local Ugandan citizens, certainly an option that Google surely missed out on!
