The launch of its own branded smartphone is an interesting move by Digicel which now operates all over the Caribbean and is now expanding into Central America and the Pacific. However there are still many questions to be answered:
  • Will it be compatible with Google’s official app store?
  • Will it support apps by developers in the region?
  • Does the affordable cost come with a contract?
  • Will this phone be the first of many Digicel branded phones?
We look forward to bringing you more information about the Digicel Smartphone DL600 in the coming weeks and months.
