Simmtronics Strategies to Acquire Market Share
Simmtronics being a new entrant to the tablet space in the nation, which is preoccupied by others including Micromax, Karbonn, Wickedleak and more, follows some interesting tactics to make it highly successful.
The company has tied up with Ozone, a Wi-Fi hotspot provider allowing consumers to enjoy free Wi-Fi at over 5,000 locations across the country. Hence, consumers of Simmtronics tablets can access free WiFi in stores including McDonald, Subway, Café Coffee Day, Manchester United, Nirulas, Cocoberry and more.
However, as these Wi-Fi hotspots are concentrated in major cities, the Simmtronics tablets might be attractive only to metro city based users.
Further, Simmtronics has also signed a tie-up with Stick Cricket, under which, the Stick Circket game will be preloaded in all the X-Pad tablets allowing the uses to play it will any player across the world online. This is a Simmtronics initiative for X-Pad using cricket enthusiasts.
