Back in May, home-grown company Smartron launched its Sachin Tendulkar-branded smartphone, srtphone in India. Initially, the smartphone was only exclusively sold on Flipkart, but it has changed now.
The company today announced that the Smartron srtphone will be available for purchase across more than 2000 leading retail stores across the country. Following the huge success in the online marketplace, Smartron has tied up with Redington India to strengthen its retail presence, for exclusive distribution of the smartphone. As mentioned earlier, the srtphone draws inspiration from Sachin Tendulkar.
"We are overwhelmed by the response that we received from consumers who ordered the srtphone online. And therefore, we decided to take it to offline retail as well. We have decided to partner with Redington India to take the srt.phone to offline retail stores," said Amit Boni, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Smartron.
Customers can now log on to the Smartron website and check out the list of retail stores near them.
