Mukesh Ambani had announced the launch of a 4G-enabled feature phone priced at effectively zero that bundles life-long free voice calls with dirt cheap data in a bid to woo 50 crore low-income users to Jio. Jio stormed into the highly competitive telecom sector last September with a six-month promotional offer of free voice and data, which has helped it mobilise 125 million users, and is now looking to hit it big with a new phone
Addressing the annual meeting of shareholders of RIL, the parent of Jio, Chairman Ambani had said the handset, named JioPhone, will have an effective price of Rs 0 as buyers will be able to get the device for a one-time refundable security deposit of Rs 1,500. The deposit will be refunded after 36 months on return of the phone
Voice calling will be free for life while unlimited data packs will cost Rs 153 a month on the device.
JioPhone was available for user testing in beta form from August 15 and for pre-booking from August 24. “JioPhone will be physically available to those who have pre-booked, on a first come first serve basis, September onwards,” Ambani had said.
The company will make available 5 million phones every week and manufacture all JioPhones in India from last quarter of this year.
