According to Harsh Vardhan, Head – Marketing, Jivi Mobiles, “Ever since we launched Jivi JSP 20, we have been inundated with calls and messages. Recently, a Regional Sales Manager of a reputed brand wrote about how he has been able to equip his sales executives across the state with an affordable smartphone – JSP 20 – that helps them coordinate product sales almost on real-time basis using WhatsApp group.”
The company claims good response for their first entry level smartphone and will soon launch cheapest 3G phone with dual core, quad core and octa core chipsets in India.
