“The Orange Klif’s launch is part of our broader long-term strategy of ensuring our network expansion into the country is supported by the provision of quality, competitive devices for our entry level customers,” Vincent Lobry, Orange Telkom Kenya CEO said.

The phone which will retail at KSh. 3,999 exclusive to Orange Telkom Kenya  is typically characterized by the pay-as-you-go metric, offering predictability of data costs through an all-inclusive tariff at a price that sets a new benchmark. Its internet experience will be powered by Mozilla something which the Orange Kenya CEO says will ensures great internet usage across platforms.

Customers seeking to upgrade from 2G feature phones to 3G smartphones will also enjoy the benefits of multimedia and online usage without experiencing without having to worry about the charges.

The Orange Klif features Firefox OS, ample screen size with its 3.5” HVGA screen and 2 mega pixel camera. Its 1300mAh battery also offers 810 hours of standbyand also provides a reliable companion when on the move.

“Although the smartphone revolution is well under way across the African continent, there remains a proportion of the population that so far has been underserved, not just because of the cost of handsets, but because of concerns about data costs. By scooping up all the costs into one, incredibly priced digital offer, we hope that critical access to the mobile Internet and all the opportunities that that opens up, will be within reach of many more people,”  Lobry said

Orange Klif has also been successfully launched in other twelve Orange markets in Africa: Egypt, Senegal, Tunisia, Cameroon, Botswana, Madagascar, Mali, The Ivory Coast, Jordan, Niger, Mauritius and Vanuatu.

Its launch into the Kenyan market follows a successful trend in the delivery and marketing of Smart phones in the region.
