The news of a new mobile phone is received with exhilaration which eventually spark off acquisition competition
Nigerians buy phones for fun. While many enjoy the features and functionalities of latest innovations, others buy for fashion and style, or even status symbol.
When the news filtered in that the just released Apple iPhone 6 was in the making, many Nigerians had already started saving for it. This was irrespective of having almost all the different series of the iPhone smartphone in their possessions. Nobody wants to be with the outdated!
Incidentally, Nigerian were not the only iPhone users anticipating the release of the device. Across Europe, Asia, Africa and even the Americas, the iPhone frenzy was rife.
Now that Apple has announced readiness to officially unveil them in Nigeria, let the competition begin.
The devices are larger than the regular iphone. They are also embedded with near field communications, NFC, which Apple says offer a more secure and fingerprint-based way to pay for goods and services.
Apple’s claim of superior security features with the NFC threatens the credit and debit cards and may render them redundant, if proven worthwhile.
According to Apple, with the NFC, users will be able to hold their phone on a standard credit card reader, and the payment will be processed only when a fingerprint is used to verify their identity. The company claims that, for the first time, vendors will not see any details about the customer, such as their name, address or credit card numbers.
