[/blockquote]iDroid USA has today announced its latest Luganda smartphone for all Ugandans called the iDroid SIMU. This reminds us of the good old days when Orange Uganda launched a feature phone dubbed Nalongo that was also in Luganda language. Then new 4.0 inch smartphone will come in three languages including Swahili and Luganda. Its 5MP rear camera captures your moments with clarity and a standby time up to 180 hours to keep you connected to the ones you love. The iDroid SIMU incorporates iDroid’s latest innovative design and technology, giving customers the ability to express their individuality with powerful performance all within their mother tongue- Luganda is a wildly spoken language spoken and read by the majority in Uganda..

Speaking at the launch Co-founder & Chief Marketing Officer, Jawad Qureshi.

“As iDroid, we are committed to continued innovation, inspired by the feedback and needs of our wide range of customers. Our newly launched rescue App gives a strong evidence of our focus on innovation. This App has greatly solved an industry problem since phones with any software problems can now be remotely fixed by the iDroid certified technicians saving client’s precious time when it comes to repairs. ,”

The iDroid SIMU continues the latest iDroid design heritage, enhancing all elements of aesthetics for a smart phone anywhere in the world selling around the $50 price range. The new phone provides superior viewing experience with a dynamic multi-Touch screen.  The iDroid SIMU also comes equipped with an enhanced 5 Mega pixel camera for both brighter and clearer photos and videos. This advanced system includes iDroid Beast speakers, a slot for a 32GB SD card as well as the popular iDroid Hub App for support. Customers can also take their best selfie using its front camera with flash.

Imma Nankya, a third year student at Makerere University noted that “I can’t wait to experience the iDroid SIMU. Who knew, we would one day have a phone in our mother tongue. I bought the Tango A5 when it was launched in May and it is the best phone I have ever held. The iDroid is a much better value than other smart phones.”

“Our demand has always exceeded supply but with this Luganda language phone hitting stores next week, we can’t produce them fast enough as most of our retailers are already pre-sold.” says Jawad Qureshi, Co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer.
