Reliance Jio Phone booking: The wait for the cheapest smartphone got over today with the booking starting at 5:30 pm today. However, much to the disappointment of eager buyers, who wanted to ensure they get the device, the website crashed thereby preventing them from registering – they saw a discouraging ‘Content server error’ message that the website flashed.

Reliance had officially announced that the pre-booking will start from 5:30 pm on Thursday i.e. 24 August. Reliance Jio had taken to Twitter to make this big announcement. Reliance Jio had tweeted, “The wait is over. India ka smartphone – #JioPhone is here! Pre-booking starts 24th August at 5PM. #WithLoveFromJio.” However, the time was then officially pushed back to 5:30 pm. Reportedly, over 50 crore users have already registered for the Jio Phone. Reliance Jio Phone can be owned on payment of a refundable security deposit of Rs 1,500. This deposit will be refunded after 36 months on return of the phone, announced Reliance on the launch of the device.

As soon as the website crashed, eager buyers turned to Twitter to express their disappointment.

The Jio Phone will sport a 2 megapixel rear camera and a front VGA camera. It will have a 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage with the option of expanding it to 128 GB using an SD card. The handset will come with a 2,000 mAh battery and will have a 2.4 inch screen.
