Aspera Mobile Talks about Nitro 2

Robertson added, “You really have to pick the Nitro 2 up to appreciate how good it looks and feels. We’ve really gone all out with the combination of design, functionality and price and quite simply put in the maximum amount of features possible for just $179. This makes the Nitro 2 unique and a compelling value for money proposition as it gives people who do not want to spend many hundreds or even thousands of dollars a great smartphone experience, access to the great Android® OS and all the applications available in the Google Play store.”

Robertson added, “Having a Nitro 2 means no-one needs to know you are on a budget when you pull out your smartphone. With its sleek, modern design and colours, along with a free slimline protective case this phone looks right at home next to others costing thousands of dollars. You shouldn’t underestimate its NFC capabilities either as more people than ever consider contactless payments an essential smartphone feature, but it is rarely seen at this price.”

The Australian company, Aspera Mobile have seen a growing demand for highly featured smartphones costing $250 or less. This phone is targeted at consumers who want value for their money.

With the 3G network shutting down in Australia at the end of the year, the Nitro 2 is an ideal solution with 4G compatible.

Roberston said, “There are thousands of consumers using 3G only phones and who will need to upgrade to 4G devices this year as all carriers switch off their 3G networks. Bearing in mind it brings the full package of design, functionality and low price the Nitro 2 is a very suitable upgrade option for all of these consumers.”

Allan Roberston concluded, “With full-featured 4G smartphones from $99 to $199 Aspera offers a market leading range of options in that price range. Nitro 2 in particular not only punches far above its weight in the smartphone stakes, but it looks and feels good while it’s doing it.”
