Yes, you read it right! If you fancy yourself as a fan/supporter of Mr. Narendra Modi you can now get yourself an android smartphone that is dedicated to Mr. Modi. Named Smart NAMO.
The name NAMO according to the manufacturers of the phone stands for Narendra Modi and Next Generation Android Mobile Odyssey. Take that for creative wordplay!!
Features of Smart NAMO
Wait before you rule this phone as a publicity gimmick. As per the official website, Smart NAMO is fully loaded smartphone with a quad core processor, 2GB RAM, 13 MP camera and runs on Android 4.2
While the official website does not mention pricing details, another website claims that the company is launching two variants namely Smart NAMO Saffron 2, Saffron 1 priced at Rs. 24,000 and Rs.16,000 respectively.
Political Campaigning More Than A Gadget
While the manufacturers do not claim any association with Mr. Narendra Modi and identify themselves as an independent body comprised of Mr. Modi’s fans, one cannot but overlook the potential publicity stunt that this Smart NAMO is.
On the other hand, it could be a group of smart business people trying to capitalize on the “Modi Fandom”. There is no doubt that Mr. Modi has a strong influence and there could be enough takers for the Smart NAMO. But if you ask me, Smart NAMO appears to more of a publicity campaign than a new gadget
I am definitely not buying one, ARE YOU?
