How many bookings have been done yet for the Freedom 251 smartphone? It is said that about 5 crore bookings have been done in the first 2 days. The world’s cheapest smartphone Freedom 251 will be delivered to first 25 lakh people initially. The Noida based mobile phone company Ringing Bells said this.
It was earlier said the bookings will be open till February 20, 8 P.M. However, too many people are interested to make bookings which hampered their webserver. Since too many bookings are coming in, the company has decided to hold further bookings.
In between, other mobile companies have approached the Central Government to intervene in this concept of selling mobile phones for Rs. 251. Mobile companies have said that it is not possible to sell smartphone at a rate of Rs. 251.
Following the complaints from the smartphone manufacturers, the DoT has said the device cannot be manufactured at a price less than Rs. 2,300.
Meanwhile, BJP MP Kirit Somaiya branded this as scam.
