The Nigerian market first got introduced to mobile telephony in 2001 and brands like Nokia,  Tecno and NITEL became the names many can remember as relation to the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) in Nigeria.

Other brands like Samsung, Motorola, LG, iPhone later joined the race to equip the Nigerian society with the latest mobile gadgets.

At the earliest stage of the introduction of mobile phones to Nigeria, the first viral phone was the Nokia 3310 which sold for a whopping 25,000 naira.

Then came MTN & NITEL as a matter of SIM cards for these phones. The earliest SIM cards in Nigeria were sold to the tone of 30,000 Naira as far back and 2005. Mind you, a SIM card currently goes for FREE or for a token of N100 presently.

The penetration of Mobile phones into Nigeria could also be credited to then former head of state, President Olusegun Obasanjo who saw a need to open Nigeria to the international community by making the telecom industry accessible to Nigerians.

Mobile phones running the Android Operating Systems were earlier called China phones (chinko) in Nigeria due to the breakable nature of the device at its earliest introduction.
