#Freedom 251: Really Cheap Or Marketing Strategy?

freedom 251: Really Cheap Or Marketing Strategy?

As the whole nation is going GAGA over recently launched #Freeom251 or "Worlds Cheapest Smartphone" whatever you would like to call it. Ringing Bell Pvt.Ltd a Noida based company headed by three CEO Mohit Kumar Goel, Sushma Devi and Rajesh Kumar is the brain behind this project. But the question arises in our mind is that: Is it really that cheap or it is just a marketing strategy? Or they trying to make their brand in this huge cellphone market?  Are they really going to sell it for 251rs. price bracket as promised? Below are the reasons of our doubts. First of all lets go though the detailed specification and features of this phone.

Freedom 251 FULL SPECIFICATIONS / Features.

Display 4" IPS (960 x 540 pixels) 
Processor: MediaTek (Quad core 1.3 GHz)
OS Android 

Camera Rear - 3.2 MP
Front - 0.3 MP

Memory Internal - 8 GB
External - Expandable upto 32 GB (MicroSD)

Now Little Calculations with FREEDOM 251 Concept

They advertised it like hell so let us assume they will approximately get 1 crore Booking in these 3 days. i.e ( 251 Crores)

They promised to deliver it after 4 months (probably you will forget about it after 120 days)

INTEREST on 251 crores for 4 months @9% p.a = 7.53 Crores)

We all know getting this phone is next to impossible, But We are trying our luck and if Phone does not get delivered we will, at least get the refund.

After reading above written points we have a huge doubt on the faith of this smartphone. Earlier similar kind of initiative was taken by Canada based company called Data-wind to provide "Cheapest Tablet PC" Aakash Tablets. Many people had ordered this table (including me) but very few people received it and it turned out to be scam. 

So before ordering this phone make sure you are ready to play gamble with your hard earned money. If you received the phone as promised by company, well and good. If not, God Bless You. :D
