Innovation in Mobile Hardware / Software is reaching its boiling point – From Rs 500 basic Mobile Phones to low cost 3G handsets to super charged Open source Mobile operating systems – The whole dynamics of mobile Industry is changing fast.
Till now I had heard about regular single sim mobile phones and Dual Sim phones as well – But the latest launch from Dual Sim pioneers Intex have announced their latest launch that will accept 3 Sims at a time…WoW !
2 GSM Sims + 1 CDMA – I am not sure how many people use 3 sim cards, but the novelty value in the Phone is surely there. Not much of a utility for anybody, but surely will help to have the bragging rights :)
The Intex IN 5030 mobile handset is JAVA-enabled, measuring 111x48x14.8mm and has a 2 inch TFT screen with 65K colours. Coupled with the device comes two batteries; each battery delivers a talk time of up to four hours and stand-by time of up 120 hours.
The handset also has Mobile Tracker and auto call record facilities. Other features incorporated in the IN 5030 are a 1.3 MP camera, Webcam, Bluetooth with A2DP, FM radio recording, audio player with equalizer, sound recorder, video player, video recorder and games. The phone has SMS capacity of 200 and a phone book capacity of 1000. The external memory can be expanded up to 4GB.
The Intex IN 5030 has all these features at price of just Rs.4700.
So, do you think this is taking it a little bit too far? Who in the world will require a 3 Sim phone except may-be the bookies, the sattawallas, the underworlds etc etc…
