Finally, a phone with a full Hindi  QWERTY keypad
India's first phone with Hindi QWERTY

It's a dual-SIM, dual language keypad device.

Now that it is here, one wonders, why did no one think of it before: India’s first mobile phone with a Hindi QWERTY keypad  is here: Gurgaon- based handset maker, Wynncomm Mobile has just launched the Y-45, a dual SIM GSM + GSM phone with dual Hindi-English keypad.

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.

The phone costsRs. 3395 in India
