As for the specifications, Namotel Acche Din sports a

4-inch display with 480×800 pixels
WVGA resolution.
Android 5.1 Lollipop OS and packs 1GB RAM.
There’s 4GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. There’s a 2MP camera at the back and a VGA selfie camera for those who plan on using this thing for taking photos. Connectivity options include 3G and dual-SIM.

According to PhoneRadar, which managed to open the website, that ‘nominal’ delivery fee is Rs 199, which means that it costs more than the phone and frankly makes no sense. And yes like with Freedom 251, Namotel and its promoter insist their product is ‘Made in India’. Better still, it will be sold only to those who are holding a valid Aadhaar card.

As far as Rs 99 pricing goes, there is no logic or economic theory to support it, and we have discussed in the past how its not possible for any company to sell smartphones at such prices, given that it won’t even cover the cost of manufacturing the phone.

On the part of these websites, however, they end up with a huge data base of users and what they do with that information is anybody’s guess. One needs to enter one’s personal details such as email address, address, phone number, identity, etc., to register for these phones.

What makes users flock to these phones is the fact that for the urban Indian middle class, an amount such as Rs.251, Rs.99 or even Rs.888 does not burn a hole in the pocket. In an era where movie halls, where tickets are priced Rs.1,500-Rs.1,900 are running to packed houses, a smartphone of such a cost is not very difficult to afford. For the creamy layer of this financial strata, such an amount is dispensable, to the extent that it is no big deal to even make a prior payment for the phone with one’s credit card and then simply forget about it.
