Rs 251 phone: Adcom says sold phone for Rs 3600 to Ringing Bells
NEW DELHI, Mar 4: The controversy over ‘Rs 251 smartphone’ took another turn today when a Delhi-based firm Adcom said it sold about 1,000 handsets to Ringing Bells for Rs 3,600 a unit and was unaware of its reselling plans.
Ringing Bells, which announced launch of the Freedom 251 smartphone, however said that Adcom provided some prototypes that it handed to some special guests, including media, for initial impression.
“We have other partners for assembly of our phones,” Ringing Bells said in a statement.
When asked about the partner, a company spokesperson named one Noida-based Eminence Technologies.
Adcom also warned of legal action against Noida-based Ringing Bells in case the latter’s activities adversely impact its brand name or cause any other kind of losses.
Ringing Bells last month unveiled the Freedom 251 phone which is being touted as the world’s cheapest smartphone.
RB will resell those 1,000 phones for ₹ 251 at a loss, then it will resell the invisible phones (scam begins) to lakhs of customers for real ₹251 and make profit, then run away to Pakistan. They will only send those initial 1000 phones, build trust that they are legit, and then get advance payments, then will run away. The initial promise of cash on delivery will be conveniently stopped before they finish off their initial stock of thousand phones. Typical Khangessi scam and BJP will pay the consequence imo. Beware guys.
Cheap way of being famous, and nothing.
BC Indian mentality.
So confirmed scam.
These scammers must be severely punished as these cheaters brought bad name to the name of India across the world.
Who cares bc??? 10 din se wahi story.. I want to see modi speech.. And real news on zee news..
god’s know what’s going on with this company , if it’s a fraud than government must act
A scam had been averted
what was adcom doing all this time?
Hope this doesn’t turn into a scam, we need to build a healthy environment for the consumers
Clearly there is some scam plan behind all this, its simply not possible to assemble a smart phone at the price of 251, let alone the profit margin. This guys have made the announcement to get the initial fame.
It is a marketing trick to get huge customer base thru false claims
