New Delhi, Nov 27 (UNI) Aimed at fuelling the growth of the CDMA industry in the country, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd today launched its first open market phone in the CDMA segment called Max.
''The availability of CDMA phones in the open market will provide the consumers freedom to choose network operator's of their choice,'' Samsung Telecommunications India Pvt Ltd Vice President and Head (CDMA Division) Hyundai Kim said.
Some of the key features of the new phone includes Indian Calendar, Panchang, Mobile Prayer, Cricket Scorer, and Hinglish SMS. Max also includes the innovative security features like Mobile Tracker and SOS alert. The phone also has some additional security features like call lock which restricts others from receiving or making calls from the handset.
Max is launched through company's own distribution network and will be available to both Tata Indicom and Reliance Mobile subscribers. Until now Samsung offered CDMA phones exclusively on either Tata Indicom or Reliance Mobile Networks, a statement said.
