Targeted at young users, the phone supports social networking sites like Opera Mini, Snaptu, Nimbuzz, Facebook, Twitter, MSN and has a soft key linking with 160by2, a free SMS service for India, UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines.
The 2.2 inch ( 5.6 cm) colour TFT screen device includes a 1.3 MP camera, Video recording and playback, bluetooth – and is one of the first phones in India to harness the CDAC- developed Geographic location finder – Saarthi .
There are a number of phones with a standard keypad in Hindi and English, including some by global maklers like Nokika -- but none with a full QWERTY in devanagiri, the script of Hindi till now.
