I had attended the Cell Show 2006 which is taking place at Rani Meyyammai Hall, Chennai between 22nd and 25th December.
This is the 3rd time the event is being held in Chennai. There was a good turnout for the show despite the Rs.30 entry fee. This is just an indication of the mobile madness in this city.
Airtel had a huge stall at the entrance with their red balloons. They were giving away Free Prepaid SIM cards if you had an ID proof. They were also displaying the new Blackberry Handsets. The BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and BlackBerry 8700g . It was just a demo piece and could not see them in action.
Univercell was to be seen with their stalls at every each and every corner. They had a stall for each of the popular brands.
I got my hands on the The Motorola Fone F3 which was launched recently.Its called the ” Unbreakable Handset ” Its priced at around Rs.1500. Its appears like a low price market winner from Motorola. The handset is interestingly manufactured in India by Flextronics in Chennai.
I tried the Motorola Ming A1200 – the Linux PDA. The Handwriting recognition is not the best one.But its a phone which has got a unique combination of features.
Wizdom.in who are the pioneers in mobile learning in India were showcasing their Mobile Application. A free demo app was available to the visitors on request.
Pictures will be available soon.
