Mr. Kwabena Boakye Asante - Marketing Manager, Tecno Ghana

Tecno Ghana, local representatives of Hong Kong telecoms company Tecno International has launched a smartphone fitted with Wifi technology.

A Wi-fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, smartphone, and digital audio player can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet, according to Wikipedia.

The new range of phone known as Tecno T8 was launched last Friday July 8, 2011 in Accra. The company which started operations in Ghana about four years ago, says it has 35% market share of the Ghanaian mobile handset business.

“We currently have 35% of the market share of the handset business and we are working on hitting 55%,” Kwabena Boakye Asante, Marketing Manager of Tecno Ghana told journalists during the launch.

“Our target is to sell 100,000 handsets every month,” he said.

He said Tecno phones are affordable and come with 13 months warranty.

Mr. Asante said Tecno Ghana has 35 handset models on the market and offers employment to more than 20,000 Ghanaians.

He promised that Tecno Ghana will open VIP phone shops in all regional capitals to make shopping for handsets pleasurable to Ghanaians. “Shopping for phones should not bring about inconvenience to customers, moreover we value all our customers,” he said.

  6. You are lying. I bought T9 at kumasi and I was given just 3 months warranthy though 12+1 warranthy was written on the box. The phone has a video playback defect but you could not do anything about it. I was told it’s a factory defect and there is nothing they can do

  7. I bought TECNO T8 from COMPUTER VILLAGE MOBILE LINK LTD. on 30/07/2011. The receipt # is 0000554, but up to date I am having problem with some of the functions. (1) during call I can’t record. (2) I can’t place pictures on my contacts. (3) I can’t access my downloads from the memory card. (4) I can’t connect to the internet, even vodafone failed in connecting me. T8 manual does not give detail guidelines on some of these functions so if you can give me some detail procedures on the above mention problems before drawing any conclusion.

  12. TECNO T8 is the worst phone I have ever seen. T9 is far better than T8. The only thing good about it is the wifi and 4GB memory card. But apart from that it really a failure on the part of TECNO GH. They have removed so many features you will find in T9. You can’ t protect your files, you can’t record conversation, you can’t create a play list in the media player. Please if you people really want to control 70% of the Ghanaian market, you better do your home well because phone companies are very competetive
