Cheapest Mobile Phone in the World only $12

Reliance Communications of India had announced plans to introduce potentially the world cheapest internet-enabled mobile phone at $12 and they are targeting to sell 1 million handsets a year. I wonder why only 1 million when its $12?? Surely India has a much bigger market than that right?

They are currently in advanced stages of discussions with leading contract manufacturers in China, Taiwan and Korea for sourcing the prototype of the low-cost internett-enabled mobile phone. The company intends to place an initial order for 12 million handsets. It will target the 600 million rural population and sell around 1 million pieces a year in the rural and semi-urban areas.

At that price, i would recommend them to bundle the phone with the service. Why bother trying to sell at $12. As its, most providers worldwide are giving away free phones bundled with their mobile services. At $12 a piece, the return of investment (ROI) should be fast.

My friend and I were recently talking about how modern society has evolved to become so integrated with technology. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about all the time.

The above statement is seen to be contradictory. The situation is
very critical and need an experience complainer to resolve it.
