After endowing India with a range of 3G smartphones late last year, the company now doffs the silk off the Idea ID-918 dual-SIM handset. This 2.3 Android OS device is noted to be the third inclusion in Idea Cellular’s smartphone lineup. Classified under its 3G portfolio, this particular gadget is reportedly blessed with a price tag that won’t eat right through the buyer’s pocket.
Besides boasting of a dual SIM capability, it also forays onto the scene with changeable sheaths for a fresh look. Although the device is integrated with a 2GB memory card for hoarding pictures, music and videos, it also lends support for a microSD card of up to 32GB. Photography enthusiasts can snap precious moments through the phone’s 3.2MP camera.
“Idea has always innovated to support the telecom services penetration in the country. In line with this commitment, we have introduced yet another affordable and fully loaded 3G Smartphone ‘ID-918’. Our first 2 smartphones ‘Blade’ and ‘ID-280’ saw higher uptake due to their multitasking capabilities and vast range of preloaded application. We have noticed good response and rapid uptake of our 3G services due to Idea smartphones. The dual-SIM market is fast evolving and we are glad to bring this innovative, feature-rich and stylish smartphone and a powerful bundle offer to our subscribers,” explained Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular.
Other attributes fitted into the latest smartphone include geo-tagging, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a 3.2-inch capacitive multi-touch screen. Music lovers can take complete advantage of the built-in MP3 player and FM radio. Furthermore, the latest smartphone also caters to social butterflies by accommodating various apps such as Twitter, Facebook and Orkut. For more entertainment on the move, the company has infused the device with YouTube, Idea TV and Google options as well. The portable handset can even double as a Wi-Fi router.
The Idea ID-918 price and availability details read as Rs. 5,994 and it is currently available across India. What’s more, data services worth Rs. 2,300 with a Rs. 259 pack are up for grabs absolutely free of cost with this phone.
