Phone Company Launches Line of African Emoticons
Few people notice that in the world of emoticons, virtually everyone is yellow and perfectly round. But in the last week the campaign for a more diverse range of emoticons has gathered speed. Apple announced that it was working to develop a more diverse range of emoji characters, but an African company has beaten them to it. Oju Africa — a division of the manufacturing giant Mi-Fone — has created a full range of “afro” emoticons. What’s more, Android users are for once getting access before the iOS set.
