data cabools, part 2


I wrote about data cables for mobile phones the other day – and came across this shop on Moi Avenue Tom Mboya Street, opposite the old fire brigade, where they sell a variety of cables for different phones and manufacturers. So in case you’ll still need a data cable to connect your (GPRS capable) phone to a computer: cables are available now! And I mention this because most mobile phone suppliers in Nairobi don’t have these cables (heck, they don’t even know what you’re talking about), so it’s nice to know they are actually for sale on Moi Avenue and even displayed in the windows. And yes, I asked for permission to take a picture…

Mobile Phones that are currently sold WITH a cable are (as far as I know) Motorola L6 & L7, Nokia 6280, Nokia 6233, SonyEricsson 8xx/9xx….but most phones still come without such a cable.
