 Based on market research and considering the need of the low cost and highly usable cell phone, we intend to manufacture a mobile phone, which will take a leap forward in the cell phone design space for rural. This phone will enable the people to use the features of the phone in a more effective and efficient manner rather than getting confused with the software features.

The following features and functionality will be emphasized on the phone

o          Calling

o          Texting (using voice to text or with assistance)

o          Music

o          Camera*

o          Microphone

o          Speaker

o          Airtime

o          Battery Level
