Google Teams Up With MTN Nigeria For Something Special, Adds Lagos To Street View


Earlier today, Google's CEO, Sundar Pichai revealed during the Google for Nigeria event, that Google has teamed up with MTN to create a new smartphone. The phone which is slated to be released in September will reportedly retail for ₦13,000.

In related news, it was also announced today that Google has launched the highly anticipated street view of Lagos, Nigeria via Google Earth. This means avid Google Earth users can get a 360 view of almost any building, road or restaurant on the streets of Lagos.

I kid you not guys, I was actually looking at the Google Earth on Monday. I was just roaming through Google Earth after not being on it in what seemed like forever.  I Googled a few places then, I proceeded to Google some places in Lagos just see if anything had changed, but unfortunately not much had changed. I was disappointed and then I began to wonder if Nigeria would ever get the "whole street level treatment" and now to hear this news is just AMAZING :). It actually works. I've been virtually driving around places since LMAO. It's like God was trying to tell me something lol.

I don't know what I am more excited about.... the smartphone or the new update? What are you guys excited about? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
