TECNO sponsors the SMARTest Blog/SMARTest Tech Blog contest

If you live in Nigeria, you’ve heard of TECNO Mobile Nigeria—TECNO, after all, was the first dual SIM mobile phone brand in Africa. TECNO Mobile’s latest offering is the TECNO Smart Family, a group of six devices that offers the options for every lifestyle, allowing you to #LiveSmart, which just happens to be slogan for these products! These impressive phones range from the M5, with its 8MP camera and a 4.5″ touchscreen to the Phantom Pad Mini, a phone/tablet (phablet) combo that features a 7″ touchscreen. Visit http://bit.ly/TECNOLiveSmart to read up on the specs of the Smart Family products.

Since we’re the Nigerian Blog Awards, we think it’s important to have a phone that allows you to easily use it to blog. All the Smart Family devices seem to fit the bill, but we especially like the Phantom AIII—with its excellent camera (13.0MP rear camera and 8.0 front-facing camera (incredible!!)), and large screen size, you’ll be able to easily create blog posts once you download the WordPress for Android or Blogger for Android app from Google Play. This phone was launched just one month ago in Lagos; learn more about it here.

SMARTest Blog/SMARTest Tech Blog contest – Sponsored by TECNO

We’ve been working with TECNO Mobile to create a special opportunity for a small group of Nigerian bloggers. The SMARTest Blog and SMARTest Tech Blog contest is simple: ten representatives from Nigerian blogs have been invited to visit TECNO’s offices in Lagos, listen to a short presentation, and then each blogger will be given one of the Smart Family products to review and keep. Bloggers will not be asked to include any specific information in their reviews, so you’ll know that what you’re reading is truly each writer’s opinion. TECNO will then evaluate the reviews and select one winner for the two categories: the best review by a tech blogger and the best review by a non-tech blogger. Both of these winners will:

  • receive a flagship product from each of TECNO’s campaigns for the next year
  • have their winning review shared on TECNO’s social media channels, giving them access to over 250,000 fans)

In addition, there may be opportunities for future brand campaigns with TECNO, and TECNO may decide to purchase ad slots on the winners’ site.

So tell us: Have you used any of TECNO’s Smart Family of products? What do you think?
