Swipe Technologies, a domestic mobile internet company, has sold out more than 5 Lakh handsets including Slice 3G and Konnect Neo Gorilla, in partnership with Naaptol. With this big announcement, the company has also officially introduced its budget smartphone Konnect Neo Gorilla which is available on Naaptol for the price of 2,999 INR.
Now, the company is trying to cater to rural markets and small cities with its Slice 3G and Konnect Neo Gorilla smartphones via Naaptol’s 25000 plus pin codes and local stock depots spanning over 20 states. Besides a strong distribution network, selling Pan India also requires an elaborate after sales support network. Swipe claims that it now has 450 service centers across the country to resolve customer issues efficiently.
The new Konnect Neo Gorilla includes a 4 inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection and is powered by 1.3 GHz dual core CPU. It has 2 MP rear and a VGA frontal sensor. It is backed by 1500mAh battery and runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat OS.
On the other hand, Swipe’s 7 inch tablet, Slice 3G comes with 1.3 Ghz dual core processor, 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal memory. It packs a 2 MP rear and a 0.3 MP front camera. It also runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and houses a 3000mAh battery.
Introducing the Konnect New Gorilla and explaining the rationale behind the strategic tie-up, Mr. Shripal Gandhi, Founder and CEO of Swipe Technologies, said: “We want our technology to be a part of every nook and corner in the country so that the consumer’s expectations can be fulfilled. Swipe brings together a fusion of innovation and affordability for our consumers. Naaptol is an excellent medium that blurs the gap between our sellers and consumers, thus making the access of the product easier. The association with Naaptol is in line with our vision to make technology available to everyone in the country and that too at a price which is not heavy on the pocket of a common man. Our latest Konnect Neo Gorilla matches the needs and desires of the rural consumers making it accessible round the country through Naaptol.”
