An android phone is a Smartphone based on goggles’ open source Android operating system. The first Android-powered phone was sold in October 2008, but today we now have dozens and dozens of different android powered phones in the mobile phone market today. Some big names involved in the manufacture of android based phones include but not limited to HTC, Motorola, and Samsung, including all of the major cellular carriers in US and selected few in Africa.
Currently, android phones are the best brand of phone in the mobile market and also the most patronized brands. This probably accounts for their high price so high that most Africans cannot afford them, making price-friendly platforms like Symbian and even BlackBerry more popular.However,with the release of low cost Samsung android phones like galaxy pocket, the trend is gradually been reversed. Although Samsung low cost android phone is still on the high side compare to Techno series of android phone, the N3 and T3.
Now talking about the subject matter affordable android phone for an average African I would have gone with Samsung galaxy pocket if not for the price which is slightly higher than new Techno series that I will be discussing here
