This is long time coming. Onida which did not make a big splash in the mobile handset segment so far has thought out a new way to dent the booming budget phone segment. Onida G595 FMX is one such phone which costs Rs. 2500. The biggest USP of Onida FMX is live streaming of music from phone to any nearby FM radio. Of course, you need content in your phone to stream. There were iPhone accessories sold to do just this thing. While that accessories were expensive as hell, Onida FMX solves that problem cheaply and you get a phone too.
Think of Onida FMX as the HDTV of the FM radio, only difference – you will be the broadcaster.
Onida G594 FMX is a dual SIM phone with 2.4 inch color TFT display. It has a audio player, FM radio, VGA camera, video recorder and voice recorder. A WAP browser is on board along with Bluetooth. Dual memory card option will take the memory to 8GB. Battery provides a talk time of 6 hours. Other features include FM Recorder, mobile tracker and call recorder.
Onida G594 FMX is a total value for money phone. Onida has been an iconic brand for televisions in the early nineties. Since then competition kicked in and Onida as a brand still exists but isn’t a reckoning force. Would a mobile play reverse its fortunes? Very unlikely. Onida needs more innovative phone types like the FMX.
Onida G594 FMX is a perfect use case for long distance travelers. Buses, tempos and other vehicles which take tourists should get one of these. This should potentially get rid of all the cd changing and usb plugging. All you have to do is search for a station, stream and relax.
