Axiom Telecom, the region’s leading mobile phone retailer, is partnering with Samsung Electronics, a leader in mobile phone technology, to provide specialized ‘Solution Bays’ across numerous Axiom Telecom retail outlets in the UAE. The Samsung Solution Bays will showcase the brand’s devices and demonstrate various mobile solutions such as navigation, music, email and messaging. In addition, Samsung will train in-store staff to provide customers with expert advice about Samsung’s offerings.
The agreement enables Samsung, a global pioneer in mobile phone technology, access to key consumers in the UAE as a means to further develop their market share in the region.
