This is not scam!

Checkout first look of this phone - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a...Gadgets360

This is not scam. This smartphone is available soon in India for 251 INR (= $4 USD). INR - Indian Rupees/ Indian Currency. This is an initiative by India Government so everyone in India can own a smartphone, especially for ppl who cannot afford high price phone. This can be exactly compared to the world's cheapest tablet computer "Aakash 2" for $20, another initiative by India Government to ease affordability

Real questions are, will the Phone available for sale outside India ?If yes, will they handle international shipping and all ??



[B]WARNING: Possible scam!

WARNING: I am following this in detail. In my opinion definitely either a prank or scam!

Can see Apple filing a law suit against the company. They are identical to an iPhone 4 from the front and an iPhone 6 at the back! LOL

They reportedly ship internationally and function on both GSM and CDMA networks. They operate under some "Made in India" program that's trying to promote international exports of India manufactured goods, so it would make sense that they are compatible on USA and EU networks. Sim card and MicroSD card slots are both there, so...

Since the government of India is paying the cost difference, you aren't going to be able to buy these in the usa.

But that creates the question of why the website is in english.
