Airtyme, which had earlier launched low cost 3G phones like Flaunt and Torrid, has unveiled its first Android phone in the country. The new phone, called AirTyme Picasso DG50, is a dual SIM phone with Android 2.3 operating system.
“Like its artist namesake, we built the Picasso to cater to the genius and the creative spark in all of us,” said Gaurav Narang, AirTyme’s director of operations in a press release. “Today’s consumers want a phone that is both feature-rich and easy to use. They can’t help but be delighted when they open the box and see its fine finish and beautiful lines. When they power it on, they’ll be dazzled by its beautiful 3.5″ (8.89 cms) capacitive touch screen and artistic motifs. And when they explore its features, we hope they will see why we chose the slogan ‘Ingenuity Meets Passion’ to build the pan-India marketing campaign for this new, unique product,” Narang added.
