Tecno has partnered with Qualcomm Incorporated and Etisalat to launch their latest smartphone, Tecno P3 into the Nigerian market. Qualcomm is a global leader in next generation mobile technologies while Etisalat Nigeria is one of the foremost network providers in the country.

At the event, Etisalat unveiled a twelve-month special promo offering subscribers 100MB free data bundle for every Tecno P3 purchased.
The TECNO P3 is an entry-level smartphone that runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, and powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225A processor to offer users the best 3G smartphone experience, good battery life, and easy access to the Internet and multiple social networks.
Speaking on the partnership, the Vice President of TECNO Group, Mr. Arif Chowdhury spoke that the P3 was manufactured to meet a need.
We realised that internet savvy Nigerians are in dire need of a fast, innovative and seamless internet experience. These experiences are what Tecno P3 smartphone brings, and that also informs why we partnered with Etisalat.
Arif went on to explain that consumers can choose either the Etisalat customized version available at Etisalat Experience Centers and its partner retailers, or buy the un-customized version from Tecno’s retail partners nationwide.
The Public Relations Manager Tecno Africa, Mr. Boukali Mounir, described what P3 looks like.
Tecno P3 is an all touch screen smart phone that is WiFi enabled. It has shortcuts to Facebook, Google Play Store, Gmail, Yahoo and Opera Mini. Above all, it is a Dual-SIM standby model with 3G/2G connectivity which makes users’ internet experience more interesting, said Mounir.
