New Square shaped Mobile phone – A game changer or just another mobile handset?

Indian Mobile handset manufacturers are going at lengths to get their hands on huge Indian Mobile Market. In last few months itself we have seen new trends and innovations (if you can call it) in mobile handset market – A triple sim mobile, A social networking mobile, AAA battery charged mobile phone or be it an Email only device !

Now Zen Mobile, an Indian handset manufacturer has introduced a first in mobile handset space – A square shaped mobile phone. Possibly, the conventional rectangular-shaped model of mobile handsets is being challenged by innovatively designed square-shaped palm sized mobile mobile handset.

Square Mobile Handset Z90

The Z90 mobile is a 2.4” touch screen which operates on a twist and slide mechanism to expose its keypad for your use. This handset which comes with a next generation design of palm-sized square shape model boasts of 3 MP Camera, MP3 Player, and new-age wireless FM radio with an expandable memory up to 4GB.

According to a J D Power surveys, customer satisfaction is greater among users of smart phones and handsets sporting touch screens than among those whose wireless phones require other input methods. The touch phones will account for nearly 40% of the Indian markets by 2012, says one another survey.

This glossy black-colored square-shaped handset, which comes with preloaded themes enabling the consumers to choose from various user interfaces, can save up to 1000 SMS messages and 1000 contacts in it. It has a stand by time of 240 hours and talk time of 2.5 hours.

The looks of palm-sized square shape Z90 does stand apart – However, how functional this handset is yet to be seen. I am sure there must be some drawback, otherwise many other manufacturers would have adopted the shape.

The Z90 comes at Rs.5399/- and has array of features like 3 MP camera, wireless FM radio and most of all dual-SIM compatibility this gadget seems a steal of an offer for its stylish looks. It can act as an ideal phone during journey what with multimedia, camera and MP3 playback features.

  3. hey i know this micromax is also producing this phone and this has got bt8 features than that still it is less costly so what is the deal??? whom 2 trust cuz i have 2 buy one in an week so it wud be really nice if someone suggested

  4. I have seen these handsets in the US and they have totally not taken off. Couple of reasons – 1) The swivel is bound to cause some mechanical problems after a while. 2) It is predominantly seen as a SMS only phone… My view – its just another mobile phone.

  5. I am reminded of Kin. http://www.kin.com/ Is Zen competing with Microsoft Kin? :)
