Tata Teleservices in association with Samsung Telecommunications India has launched a new handset called the Samsung Explore. Now you must be wondering what’s unique about this handset. This new-age phone has a mobile browser which is designed to provide mobile users a true Web experience by providing speed 3-4 times faster than GPRS, with access to all websites. Tata Teleservices promises that the quick experience this handset offers is very unique and cannot be compared to any of the existing mobile browsing services. This handset provides faster speed because it works under a CDMA network.
Tata Indicom is offering free incoming facility for a year and free 1,000 minutes Tata to Tata calling along with the handset package. Users can also select their tariff plan from a variety of options.
Now comes the most important part. The price of the handset and the price of the browsing service. The handset is priced only at Rs. 5,499 which we think is quite reasonable. The mobile internet service prices range from Rs. 10 a day to Rs. 99 a month with unlimited internet access. What’s more, every user gets a 7-day trial offer of free unlimited Internet access, so you can always try the service before subscribing to it.
What we think is one of the biggest disadvantage is that existing users cannot subscribe this high speed mobile internet service on their existing phones as this service is currently available only on Samsung Explore handsets. If Tata Indicom’s this package contains as it promises it can be a great deal for internet freaks.
