Spice launches dual SIM Android phone

With an aim to expand its footprint in the growing mobile-internet market, S Mobility launched its latest dual SIM Android phone, the Mi-350.

"We see the future of telephony in what we have termed as 'Mobile Internet'," the company's Associate Vice President (Operations) Zulfi Ali Bhutto told reporters after the launch of Mi-350, which he claims, is India's first 3G and 2G dual SIM Android phone.

He said the trend of using internet facilities on mobile is increasing everyday and substantiated his claim by detailing out figures of growing Facebook and Twitter users in the country.

The Android platform based smart phone gives a battery back-up of seven days.

The company (formerly Spice Mobility Ltd), which entered the Bhopal market in 2005, has a healthy market share of 12 per cent and is aiming to capture the number two slot soon.

Its business operations are spanning across India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka.
