@Rajni Jain • 13 Feb, 2014 • 1 like A dirt cheap price of $24 ??? Wow!

If you look at the features list, 2.4 inch colored display, bluetooth, GPRS, mobile tracker, 1.3 MP camera and 1200 mAh battery. Not bad, for any mobile that may range in 4000+ INR range.

What is the Panasonic strategy of selling these cheap devices, strengthening their market in low mobile user segment??
