Olive launches a 'AAA' battery powerd phone in India

4 Mar

At a time when most handset vendors are dabbling in phones with solar panels to cater to rural markets that suffer from prolonged electricity outages, Olive Mobile – an Indian handset vendor with ties to Haier – has gone back to the basics and introduced a cellphone that can work on a AAA battery when the primary battery runs out of juice!

Olive’s FrvrOn is priced at Rs 1,699 and has a 1.5 inch display, FM radio with loudspeaker and comes with a stereo headset. Olive has not clarified about the talktime that a user would get with a AAA battery but we’d be happy if it can do an hour of calls and about a day of standby time.

The company has promised us a review unit and this is probably the first low-end phone in a long time that we are really looking forward to review!
