Commenting on the launch, Mr. Shashin Devsare, Executive Director, Karbonn Mobiles said, “With the launch of K9 Smart, we aim to dissolve the language barrier which is one of the major impediments inhibiting Smartphone adoption amongst non English speaking population. As per IAMAI, the local language user base grew 47% and touched 127 million in June. The growing consumption of local language content on mobile phones is a clear indicator of the need for vernacularising the Smartphone ecosystem for bridging the gaping digital divide. With K9 Smart launch we aim to bridge this divide by offering Indian users an affordable Smartphone device which offers access in their native language for ease of use thereby encouraging adoption.”
