Akai Mobiles has announced the launch of its first triple SIM phone called Trio.
Akai Trio will feature 3 GSM SIM slots and will cost about Rs 3,300 with a one year warranty.
Trio has a 5.1 cm (2 inch) TFT screen and 1.3 mega pixel camera with digital zoom. Akai Trio supports two languages, and has an audio player with equalizer.
Other goodies include a sound recorder, video player and video recording capability. The phone also has an FM radio, Bluetooth with A2DP, USB port, ebook reader app and games.
Akai Trio’s memory can be expanded to 8 GB and the phone has options such as speed dialling, conference call, and forwarding a call to the active SIM.
Trio uses an 1100 mAh battery with talk time of 5 hours and standby time of up to 400 hours. The handset is 109 x 44.5 x 14.3 mm in size.
Pranay Dhabhai, managing director of Akai India, said, “Akai is the first multi-national brand to be introducing a complete GSM mobile phone based on triple SIM platform. This concept has been ideated keeping in mind the conventional user who wants the utility of multiple connections without getting burdened with multiple handsets. “
We just wonder if it would have been a better idea to include one CDMA SIM instead of three GSM slots – that would certainly have increased the user ‘s choices.
