Spice Mobiles recently announced on Thursday that it will start manufacturing cellphones in India. The already popular mobile company has claimed that it will be able to sell a million phones from April and that it can start producing cellphones in the country from this year end. The company will start a trial of its products from the next month onwards.
The CEO of Spice Mobiles Kunal Ahooja said at an interview,
We already have a facility in Baddi, Himachal Pradesh, where we manufacture other devices. We will start trial production of our handsets from next month and start start the commercial manufacturing following that by the end of this year.
This statement was made at the launch of Spice Mobiles’ latest 12 MP camera phone. The phone S-1200 is priced at Rs. 14,500. Another phone M7070 which was launched last year in December is suitable for the budget conscious buyer. Spice has clearly seen a huge potential in the Indian market and is planning an expansion here. It recently sponsored the Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week to gain attention and buzz.
If everything goes well here, Spice has further plans of expanding to Africa and other Asian markets. India is currently the optimal test bed for any new technology with its varied levels of users. More and more companies will take advantage of this fact and this will be beneficial for both the users and manufacturers.
