Samsung West Africa & Spinlet Partner to Launch a New Galaxy Smartphone in Lagos! Photos of Samsung Mobile Brand Ambassador Sasha at the Event



On Wednesday 23rd May 2012, Samsung West Africa Electronics and mobile music download and streaming application company Spinlet hosted a collaborated launch party for the new Samsung Galaxy Pocket Smartphone (S5300) at the Lagos Oriental Hotel.

The partnership between the two brands is a fantastic opportunity for consumers to enjoy their favourite music on an advanced new smartphone with Touch Wiz UI multi-tasking and Wi-Fi capabilities.

At the launch, Eric Idahi (Spinlet Chairman) said “The market for digital music in Africa has been untapped by any of the major music services to date. This opened the door for the partnership with Samsung to once again be a trendsetter. The Spinlet model allows independent musicians and bands in Africa to sell their music alongside other more prominent artists in Africa and from around the world. Spinlet also provides artists with tools to better understand their fan base and interact with them through social media. By providing the application pre-installed, Samsung significantly increases the amount of listeners and potential buyers of these artists’ music. In a country riddled by piracy, the free streaming and pay per download model that Spinlet and Samsung are providing to the market really helps create value in fans eyes and a revenue stream for artists”.

Daesong Ra (Business Manager, Mobile Division Samsung Electronics West Africa) also said “Our proposition offers consumers a smart phone experience that is not only affordable but ‘Clearly Different, Clearly Smart.’”The Samsung Galaxy pocket comes packed with over 400,000 free apps, faster internet connectivity at an amazing retail price of N18,900. In addition, consumers on the MTN network can enjoy 1 month free of internet data to experience these exciting smart phone solutions.
