The phone was unveiled by National Association for the Blind amongst its students and faculty. NAB is the largest non-government, voluntary organization in India.

With a very simple user interface, the phone has a robust ‘no-frills’ design with lots of entertainment and utility features like wireless FM radio, audio player, expandable memory up to 2 GB, torch light, auto call record, mobile tracker, dedicated one-touch key for locking the keypad, a phone and SMS memory of 1000 contacts and 250 messages respectively.

Developed at Intex’s Centre for Design & Development, the Dual SIM phone (GSM+GSM) has a large Braile keypad to facilitate recognition of digits. People, who are not conversant with Braile, could switch on the ‘Talking Keypad’ feature which speaks out in English the number they have pressed.
