- A smartphone priced at Rs. 251 will go a long way in connecting every Indian, and like the previous government tried to take computing to the masses with the Aakash tablet, the Freedom 251 has the potential to realise the ‘Digital India’ vision.
- Users also get a 1-year warranty on the phone backed by their 650 service centers across the country.
When will your phone be delivered ?
Well we understand you are afraid that whether you will really get the phone or not due to such a low price which can’t be imagined but as far as the sources say, we have the following dates –
- Date of Bookings – 6 AM February 18 – 8 PM February 21
- Date of Delivery – By 30th June 2016.
An Issue to be noticed –
This company (Ringing Bells) had already launched a 4G enabled smartphone Smart 101 that is already listed on their website for a price tag of ₹2,999.
However it is not clearly mentioned from where the Smart 101 handset can be bought. Probably it was available on their own website, there are some users who had purchased it but have still not got the handset delivered.
Pre-installed Apps in the phone
Now-a-days smartphones come with some pre-installed apps for eg – Flipkart App in Xiaomi Phones. Similarly this app comes with below apps –
- Swachh Bharat
- Women Safety
- Google Play
- Twitter and few others
However still, what we can do is hope for the best and support the government in the initiative and wish that it occurs on large scale and the company is successful in delivering the products and make ”Make in India” and ”Digital India” a success.
