Choice – Whilst Yezz has a broad product range, much research has gone into selecting the key devices which will appeal to the needs and aspirations of the Nigerian target consumer. This research has been validated by key operators, distributors and consumers. Based on this, Yezz will spearhead this charge with key smartphone products which provide the right balance of features, value for money, performance and design to win their hearts. To do this we will be giving consumers a choice of Yezz devices to suit whichever operating system the consumers prefer, starting off with Android and Windowsphone devices, and to be followed shortly thereafter by a Firefox range of devices. In addition, most of the Yezz devices coming into market will come standard with between 3 to 4 additional colour covers. This will give consumers confidence that their device looks fresher and newer for longer.
