In addition to its voice and data services, Safaricom, Kenya's largest mobile service provider, is now making strides in the retail market for smartphones. One recent example is the introduction of the Huawei Ideos U815 Android Smart Phone. Purchasing a smartphone in Kenya today is more affordable compared to previous years, thanks to the advancements in technology that have made phone features and capabilities more accessible to the public.

The launch of the highly anticipated Huawei Ideos U815 Android Smart Phone by Safaricom provides Kenyans with an opportunity to own this remarkable device and enjoy its exciting features. The Huawei Ideos U815 Android Smart Phone was unveiled in September 2010 and operates on the Android 2.2 (Froyo) Operating System. It is undeniably a fantastic phone, and its attractive price of only Kshs. 8,499 at Safaricom retail stores makes it even more appealing.

The fierce competition among mobile service providers in Kenya has resulted in a significant reduction in voice and text charges, impacting their revenues. Consequently, these providers have diversified their offerings to include data services, mobile money transfers, and retail ventures to offset the revenue loss. Each service provider now operates retail businesses that specialize in phones, laptops, phone accessories, and modems, all striving to introduce the latest technological advancements to the market.

Since its introduction to the Kenyan market, the Huawei Ideos U815 Android Smart Phone from Safaricom has been retailing at affordable prices. However, it is worth noting that the phone does have a few limitations, such as the lack of flash support and a plastic body casing. When you purchase the Huawei Ideos U815 Android Smart Phone from any Safaricom outlet, you will also receive Ksh. 1,000 worth of airtime and 600mb of data.

Here are some of the noteworthy features of the Huawei Ideos U815 Android Smart Phone:
