Safaricom’s Nokia 1680 Low Cost Offer.

Safaricom is clearly pushing as low and as wide as they can in getting everyone in Kenya to use their Safaricom Live! internet services. Their latest “Internet Mkononi” (i.e. Internet in your hand) offer of Kes. 2,699.00 for a Nokia 1680 is probably the least expensive GPRS internet capable offer in the marketplace at this time (which also includes Kes. 250.00 of free airtime).

The Nokia 1680 offer was published in a full page ads in the Media this past week and is bound to see a good number of purchases this month. The phone itself, as advertised, also has Nokia’s OVI Mail, a Full Color Screen, Camera, Ultra-long battery life and Multimedia Messaging (MMS).
