The product of the Bangalore-based UTL Group and Delhi-based Jaina Group alliance, Karbonn mobile handsets have been known for combining style and function. While their aesthetic beauty makes them instantly attractive at any mobile store or online market, the host of features they come with and technical innovations such as dual SIM satisfy tech-geeks. To top it all, there's a competitive price thrown in that makes Karbonn Mobiles an attractive proposition. karbonn k102 is an example of a relatively simple but attractively featured handset.
Karbonn K102 is another dual SIM GSM mobile launched by the popular mobile handset company in India. There's no getting away from the fact that it has an aesthetically appealing appearance with the red color particularly standing out. It comes with a 2-inch LCD TFT screen display and up to 8GB of expandable memory which is great for multimedia storage (songs, video, etc.), as well as a Micro SD/T-Flash Card.
The MP3 audio player, MP4 video player, FM radio and games will keep you occupied whenever you need to kill time, while the 640x480-pixel digital camera with digital zoom and the video recording feature will help you capture those memorable moments with reasonable clarity. The pack comes with earphones so you can have personal sessions of musical appreciation. The micro-USB connector and Bluetooth ensure the all-important connectivity with other devices such as a USB music stick or pen-drive.
The other features of the Karbonn K102 GSM mobile include the obvious characteristics such as dual standby and the dual-band GSM operating frequency of 900/1800 MHz, SMS and MMS capability, the presence of the WAP browser and the really thoughtful GPRS. The K102 offers English and Hindi language (for SMS and in the handset keys). The mobile tracker feature is also present as well as data security. The dual torch light should be doubly handy during emergencies.
Probably the only disadvantage (if you can call it that) is that karbonn k102 is only available in red, but it looks attractive enough. Apart from the handset and earphones, the sales pack includes the user manual, charger, battery and warranty card. Along with the default set of ringtones you can also get others and hear them play well with the polyphonic tone.
The price in India of karbonn k102 is Rs.1, 392, placing it above the likes of Nokia 1202C and 1616, but below the Nokia 101 and 1208.
