China's Huawei Technologies has changed its strategy in Kenya to showcase an affordable one-hundred to two-hundred dollar range of smart phones. The company hopes the increased sales will boost its local market share from the current four percent to 15 percent in that segment. Local boss of Huawei Derek Du, says the strategy will also push the company's overall market share from the current 14 percent to about 30 percent in about two years. Huawei is ranked number three in the fast-growing local smart devices market, behind South Korea's Samsung Electronics and Tecno, owned by Hong Kong's Transsion Holdings. Kenya's bigget network operator, Safaricom, says there are 13 million smart phones on its network, up from 10 million last year.
