Airtyme Communication, which also distributes Motorola XT800 and HTC Pulse CDMA phone, is going to launch two new 3G phones under its own brand name in India.
The phones called Flaunt and Torrid will have 3.2 and 2.8 inch screens respectively with full Qwerty slider keypad. They will have Java based touch operating system.
The Flaunt, which is a 3G phone (7.2 Mbps), will have 3.0 megapixel camera with Flash, Opera mini browser, stereo speaker and 3.5 mm Jack. Besides, it will play a wide variety of music and video files.
The processor of the phone is a 528 MHz unit supported by 256 MB RAM, 1GB SDcard and will come with the package and external memory which can be expanded up to 32GB. Its battery is of 1250mAH unit.
Torrid, on the other hand, is a 2G phone with a smaller 2.8 inch screen coupled with a Qwerty slider. It has a ARM based chipset and supports only 4GB of external memory support.
The Flaunt is priced at Rs 5,999, while the Torrid’s price has not been disclosed but will be substantially cheaper than the former. An Airtyme spokesperson confirmed to ‘The Mobile Indian’ that both the phones will be available from July 20.
Given the pricing and specification of the Flaunt it has the right ingredients to be a success. However, it will all depend on how well this phone really works and well the distribution is done.
The spokesperson of Airtyme also confirmed that there will be couple of Android phones also coming under its brand name in September, although plans has not been finalised as of yet.
