Commenting on the launch, Manish Sharma, Managing Director, Panasonic India said:
The T33 Smartphone has been developed and designed to overcome the fundamental problem of language barriers faced across India by giving them an option to choose from various languages to interact, engage, entertain and connect in their preferred language. We are sure that adding support for local language in the device will give an opportunity to our customers to communicate seamlessly.
Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India said:
Language is one of biggest barriers that prevent people from using mobile phone functions exhaustively. This Smartphone has specifically been launched to enable vernacularization by serving the unique needs of Indian consumers across multiple markets. This does not only create a powerful medium for our consumers but also gives them a chance to interact, exchange views and communicate in a hassle-free environment.
Update: Panasonic has revised the price of the smartphone from Rs. 4990 to Rs. 4490.
