Ever thought of accessing Hutch and Tata Indicom from the same phone. Ever heard of a phone that can support both GSM and CDMA networks at the same time. It wasn’t possible till now but Tata Indicom and Samsung have now unveiled India’s first touch screen based Dual SIM smart world phone – Samsung Duo. The main objective of launching a dual sim based phone is to revolutionize the Indian telecom market and also try to give a non Tata Indicom users a reason to switch over. The phone is equipped with a decent 1.3 MP camera, a 2.2-inch sharp and responsive touch screen, microSD Card slot, MP3/AAC player and a bluetooth function to share your stuff.
Apart from all the needed features one needs in today’s cellphone, Tata also provides Internet connectivity through bluetooth. That’s cool because you can just network your laptop and your Samsung and get high connection speed of upto 134 kbps. The features don’t end out here. Value added features like facility to retain their existing last 4/5 digits mobile number on to the New Tata mobile number, a Rs 200 discount to customers for the first 2 months to reduce the burden of paying two bills and other offerings depending upon the plan you choose.
We have provided all the necessary information needed. Haven’t we? No wait there’s another shocking aspect to it. The cellphone is priced at Rs. 11,999. What else do you need?
We haven’t reviewed the cellphone, but the features the TSP is providing for Rs. 11,999 is definitely a great value for money. Tata through its ads tries to convey that it provides the best network coverage and thus if it manages to do so, for Tata Teleservices, which is already India’s fastest growing TSP, it would be an icing on the cake and thus it could manage to give the other operators a run for their market share.
