As it was published before, after the successful launch in CIS of the pilot model MultiPhone 4000 Duo, the first smartphone ever by Prestigio, the company takes the next step to make its footprint on this strongly growing market in the entire region of Europe and CIS countries.
In 2012 the Prestigio has achieved significant success in selling tablet PCs. Thanks to MultiPad 9.7 Pro and MultiPad 9.7 Ultra the company managed to break into the top largest suppliers of tablets and got up to 25% market share in multiple countries in the region of Central East Europe just after Apple and Samsung.
"After the tremendous success with the Prestigio MultiPads across EMEA, we have received many requests from both resellers and end-users to adopt our product concept to Android Smartphones. The MultiPhone Family is the result. Very good price performance ratio, great usability right out of the box, attractive design and very good build quality." states Yuri Antoshkin, COO of Prestigio.
There are three new models of Prestigio smartphones representing the line extension, and all have one useful feature in common - the support of Dual SIM. Switching between SIM cards anytime by simply pressing the dedicated hardware key gives the convenience of having two phones in one and the possibility to keep the work and leisure time apart. By using this advantage, it is easy to combine two different tariffs or service providers at the same time. Now Prestigio MultiPhones are available at PrestigioPlaza.com as well.
