Lava B5 – First Handset To Incorporate Indian Rupee Symbol

Lava Mobiles have definitely done a great job by introducing a dedicated key for typing in the new Indian Rupee Symbol. Earlier Lava had also launched the first ever ABCDEF style keypad phone.

Here is what the Founder & Director of Lava Mobile, Mr. S.N Rai had to say during it’s launch:

We took this as challenge to ensure that Indians can type the new rupee symbol long before than the anticipated time. Around the occasion of Independence day announcing the incorporation of  the new rupee symbol in the mobile keypad will be a tribute from Lava family to the entire nation. The currency symbol on the keypad of their mobiles will make millions of Indian proud. We are happy to be the catalysts of spreading this spirit.
