New smartphone market thrives in Nigeria

There are four million smartphone users in Nigeria and it is expected to hit 25 million in 2016.

    The smartphone market is fiercely competitive worldwide.  
     
    While Apple has been making headlines in Europe and America, Research in Motion, the company behind Blackberry, is looking elsewhere.

    In Nigeria, there are four million people using smartphones, and half of those phones are BlackBerry's. In the next four years, that number is expected to hit 25 million.
