Nokia moves to make people mobile-savvy
Nokia, a leading mobile-set manufacturer, launched a new programme in Mymensingh yesterday to educate new and rural subscribers about the necessity of mobile technology to help cope with the tech-driven world.
The number of mobile subscribers is increasing by the day but many do not have clear idea about the necessity of the technology, said Nowfel Anower, head of marketing for Nokia, in his address to the programme at Bhaluka Government Girls High School.
Anower has particularly referred to the subscribers in rural areas who do not have "enough knowledge" about the usefulness of cellphones.
Nokia has moved to provide mobile sets at affordable prices, said Anower.
"A mobile phone is not a luxury but an investment and we offer one-year warranty to secure the investment of people," he said.
"Our aim is to make subscribers understand that now the mobile is part of development," he said.
Headmistress of Bhaluka Govt Girls High School Razia Banu attended the programme as special guest.
