Mobile phone manufacturer iBall is set to bring a range of handsets to the Indian market, including an Android 2.2 based smartphone with a 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen, in the next three months.
Speaking exclusively to The Mobile Indian, Sandeep Parasrampuria, the director of iBall, said, “We will be launching an Android smartphone shortly. We will also launch a long battery life feature phone that offers close to 20 hours of talk time, by the end of this month.”
He added, “We are also planning to launch a 3G feature phone with video calling facility next month. We have a big road-map for devices which include very innovative products ranging from smartphones, tablets and feature phones. We are sure to surprise people with our products.”
He, however, did not disclose how much these phones would cost, but going by the features of the device it seems that the Android smartphone will be very similar to Micromax A70 and Spice Mi310, so it is expected to cost around Rs 7,000. Going by iBall’s track record, there might be some unique features in the phone as well.
iBall, which launched a 7 inch Android tablet on Thursday, September 8, also has a range of feature phones for various segments. For instance the iBall Senior was meant for senior citizens, and the company similarly launched phones for army personnel as well.
“Continuing on similar lines, iBall will launch a well thought out device for each consumer segment, and surprise people,” Sandeep told The Mobile Indian.
