Nokia announces flagship sponsorship for DEMO Africa at Nokia Showcase in Johannesburg

At an event in Johannesburg, which highlighted the entire Nokia portfolio to media and customers from across the region, Nokia also confirmed their support as the platinum sponsor for the second DEMO Africa. DEMO Africa provides the most innovative new and established companies from across Africa the opportunity to launch their products on stage at the high profile event, which takes place in Nairobi at the end of October 2013. At the Showcase, Nokia also announced availability for the Lumia 925 and Nokia Lumia 625 with both smartphones expected in Kenya in the coming months. Joining the new devices in Kenya soon will be a new classic mobile phone, the Nokia 208.

“We are innovating across our portfolio,” said Gerard Brandjes, vice president for Nokia in South and East Africa. “And this innovation is translating into real results across the African continent. Nokia Asha and Lumia are taking great strides forward, and we will continue to connect with our consumers, and will keep bringing products and services to market that Africans love. Our core strength comes from our local presence, and that is why initiatives like DEMO Africa are essential for us as a company.”

A new interpretation of the Nokia Lumia 920, the Nokia Lumia 925 includes advanced lens technology and imaging software. These advancements ensure even more detail can be seen thanks to clearer and sharper pictures and video, in addition to outstanding low light images. The Nokia Lumia 925 features the Nokia Smart Camera app, offering an easy way to capture ten images at once and edit the pictures with options like Best Shot, Action Shot, and Motion Focus for creating the perfect high quality image.

The Nokia Lumia 925 also introduces metal for the first time in the Lumia range, bringing broad appeal and benefits like increased robustness. The polycarbonate back comes in white, grey or black. The Nokia Lumia 625 is an accessibly priced 4G ready smartphone that helps people see more of what they love with a large 4.7-inch super-sensitive LCD screen. Building on the award winning Lumia design language, the Nokia Lumia 625 is available in an exciting range of colours with changeable rear shells.

With its big screen and super-fast connectivity, the Nokia Lumia 625 delivers a richer and easier to use smartphone experience at a competitive price. In addition to all the benefits of Windows Phone 8, the device also offers SD memory card support, allowing up to 64GB of additional content storage. Leading Nokia services such as the HERE suite of integrated location and navigation services and Nokia Music for unlimited streaming of free music playlists, add to the great experience offered by Nokia’s latest smartphones. The Nokia 208 combines the familiar candybar design with Nokia’s signature bold colors and 3.5G Internet speeds. Popular social apps, smarter imaging and productivity features such as Internet-sharing and Microsoft Exchange mail support make these phones some of the most versatile at their price point; perfect for people balancing work and play.
