Facebook at a touch with Vodafone Blue handset

07 Sep,2011

Accessing Facebook on the go is the latest craze, no matter the amount of indignation over users in public places oblivious to traffic and pedestrians. It’s a need that Vodafone Essar has taken to the next level with the launch of the Vodafone Blue. Designed to put the Facebook experience into the heart of the handset, Vodafone Blue allows users to easily share and connect with their friends, as Facebook starts as soon as the phone does.

The Vodafone Blue, developed in collaboration with Facebook, brings the qualities of a classic Smartphone together with popular social networking functions – from status updates to sharing a photo at an equally attractive price of Rs 4,950, inclusive of taxes.

Vodafone Blue is launched in India with unlimited access to Facebook for a year from the date of its purchase. The phone has a designated F button that lets the user upload pictures, visit profiles and update status at a single click. It also provides other updates such as counters and notifications, and displays Facebook posts regularly in the background.

Speaking at the launch, Mr Kumar Ramanathan, Chief Marketing Officer, Vodafone Essar said, The mobile internet plays a central role in the daily lives of millions of Vodafone customers, many of whom are avid Facebook users. Vodafone Blue is the answer to mobile social networking needs.

Commenting on the launch of the phone, Mr Henri Moissinac, Head of Mobile Business, Facebook said, Facebook wants to make every phone social. We are really happy that Vodafone has brought the phone to India and enabling people to experience Facebook free of charge from the mobile device for a year.

Photos taken using the phone’s 2-megapixel camera can be shared at a single click. The phone has 2.4 landscape display, QWERTY keypad, Opera Mini 5 Web browser, Bluetooth 2.1, GPRS/EDGE, email client with POP3 and IMAP support, microSD card slot, 32 GB expandable memory, 40MB internal memory, microUSB port, 3.5mm headphone jack and a 1000 mAh battery.
