(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Khimji Ramdas, with its extensive distribution network, is ideally positioned to promote wireless connectivity in the country, according to its director Anil Khimji.

He was addressing a press conference to announce the wireless connectivity feature in Nikon's digital SLR cameras (DSLRs) on Wednesday at City Seasons Hotel.

Nikon highlighted its commitment to wireless connectivity in DSLRs in partnership with Khimji Ramdas, its official distributor.

''Nikon has seen a steady growth in the region. Business has doubled over the past three years,'' said Takashi Yoshida, managing director, Nikon MEA, ''In Oman alone, Nikon's business has grown by 50 per cent over the past two years, and the trend is expected to continue this year, particularly in the DSLR segmen
