Vodafone comes with solar powered phone to India

Labels: , ,

It appears that mobile phone makers are shifting focus to the rural people in a big way and are coming up with innovations custom made for the masses. Vodafone has come up with a new solar powered handset called the VF 247. The phone is priced at an affordable rate of Rs. 1,500, keeping in mind the target audience which mostly is the rural mass, and will be available across India from next month.

The VF 247 has the option of being charged in direct sunlight. The Sun Boost technology installed in the phone ensures that the phone is charged in a room, under normal daylight. The phone packs in a color screen, a torch light and FM radio among its specs. The device needs eight hours of direct sunlight to be fully charged.

Marten Pieters, MD and CEO, Vodafone Essar said of the product, "Vodafone's solar powered phone is launched for people residing in areas where electric supply is unstable, so that consumers can rely on solar charging to remain connected. This launch is likely to enable more people in rural India to go mobile and thus increase penetration from the current 20 percent. We will continue to invest to uplift the quality of telecom services and products in India."The rural areas of India face the trouble of regular power cuts. In such a scenario, charging your mobile phone becomes less of an option and more a luxury. This is where the solar powered phones can play a pivotal part.

However, the concept of solar powered phone is not new. Let us jog your memory to last year when Samsung came up with Guru E 1107, the world's first solar powered phone. The phone was priced at Rs. 2,799 and came with features like FM radio, MP3 ringtones, embedded games and torchlight.

If this trend catches up and more players join the race, the amalgamation of technology and renewable resources would definitely brighten the future.

Unlimited Plans – Subscribers Dream & Operators Nightmare

Labels:

Network and spectrum are pretty expensive things. Huge costs go in deploying networks. An operator who is ready to incur costs expects good return on investment.

But the costs are so huge that it takes years for an operator to look at profits. Also they cannot charge heavily for service because they have incurred huge costs. So there is a trade off between what we expect and what we get.

Typically, voice networks are pretty much controlled. Each voice call is given a radio channel and if all the channels in a certain area are occupied user starts feeling the congestion. This was one of the challenges with the voice network that service providers used to face or still facing. Now with data coming in, that challenges have increased many folds.

Data is a best effort service. That is at a given point of time, a user doing data from his mobile may consume more than one channel. Since spectrum is limited, networks easily get choked up. Thanks to 3G, since voice calls are on one radio technology and data on other, at least my voice calls are safe. Why are unlimited plans a distant dream? Its simple economics! More you give, more they ask. It has been result of many research’s that 5-10% of subscribers that use unlimited plans consume 70-80% of network bandwidth. This certainly is not fair. Assume that in a give region there is geek sitting and consuming all the bandwidth, doesn’t our insanity levels go high? AT&T had burnt its hands with unlimited plans. First the networks are congested, next subscribers are not happy and the result no unlimited plans. Even if the plans are advertised “unlimited”, they are not “truly” unlimited.

The wide variety of mobiles that are available in the market is also adds up to the network congestion. The mobiles should be carefully designed not to burden the network with signaling. With so many applications running on mobile devices the connections are always up and resources are continuously consumed. This is for the exact reason why IPhone developers where give crash course by AT&T.

It’s nobody’s business to tell subscriber how to use what is given to him. But its time users get smart and start utilizing the resources efficiently. Instead of burning the networks with downloading movies on mobile phone why not switch over to wifi? Just a thought!

More to follow! Stay tuned.
