The brands mentioned above are Nokia and Airtel respectively. Both these companies are known throughout the globe for their respective trademarks in quality and reliability of service provided. The companies have formed an alliance in order to revolutionize the Indian mobile internet segment.
In the not too distant past whenever anyone wanted to access the mails sent to them by friends or family or even from their offices they had to either switch on his desktop or laptop at home or had to rush to the nearest internet cyber cafe to check the mail if he was not home. This was sometimes too difficult. However the advancements made in technology have found a simple solution to this daunting task.
The rise in technical development of mobile handsets and telecom communication methodologies have led to the advent of the phenomenon known as Mobile Internet wherein a user can access the internet, read his emails, reply to them, connect with his favorite social networks and so on. Thus internet on the go is possible now.
Airtel and Nokia have analyzed this growing trend and have decided to capitalize on this segment by jointly introducing the new phone, Nokia C1-0. The Nokia C1-01 handset is a GSM model that can only be combatable with the mobile operating service provided by Airtel. Airtel has coupled a 50MB free internet usage along with the phone keeping in mind the main purpose of Nokia C1-01 handset, i.e. Mobile Internet.
According to Mr. Viral Oza, Head of Marketing, Nokia India, the company is focused on providing a way in which the mobiles users can get an easy access to the internet on their phones. He also stated that the tie up with Airtel was also aimed at first time mobile buyers who are scared of exploring its features because of their limited knowledge in using them. The Nokia C1 01 handset will enable them to have a rich experience of Internet content and also provide them with a good user interface.
The phone has been launched with an introductory price of Rs 2789 and this pricing is going to be a thorn in the eye for similarly priced models from the likes of Samsung, Sony Ericsson and Micromax. The phone also features a VGA camera, music and video playback and an expandable memory of up to 32 GB.
The internet usage of 50 MB provided by Airtel's new launch is valid for only 30 days after which the customer will have to pay Rs 30 every month to enjoy using this benefit.
Thus the launch of the Nokia C1-01, after Nokia joint Airtel, comes as a delight to the Indian People.
