Lately, Xolo continues to be aggressively marketing its devices, especially on tv, with promotional banners and ads appearing on primetime. Now, Xolo is going to be launching its first 4G smartphone with Bharti Airtel, based on reports from The Days of India. Xolo will be the first Indian brand to provide a time-division duplex long term evolution (TD-LTE) smartphone in India, as shipments begins in the end in the month.
Xolo has wants to launch several 4G devices at different prices, supporting TD-LTE technology, in 2014. Furthermore, best phone under 10000 also intends to ship over fifty percent millions of devices this quarter alone, as it predicts that sales for 4G devices is going to be competitive by 2015. As previously reported, currently, Bharti Airtel will be the only network in India with a 4G LTE network, and even then, it’s only in select cities. Furthermore, Bharti Airtel recently signed a contract with Reliance Jio for sharing network infrastructure to avoid duplication.
Personally, I want to eventually see 4G LTE technology available across India. Only then would I consider getting a 4G LTE device. As it currently stands, with both device and network availability limitations, consumers don’t look like that interested in making the switch. What I’ve also realized is the fact that along with most subscribers being content on either a 2G or 3G network, some aren’t conscious that 4G can be purchased in select cities, or perhaps available at all. Clearly, consumers have to be informed in order to make a conclusion, and i also really don’t feel like the telecom operators are making a great deal of an endeavor to tell them.
From the same token, besides network availability issues, there’s also too little 4G devices obtainable in the Indian market. Should you head into your local bazaar or market, they merely don’t carry 4G devices. You usually have to go to the high-end shopping centers, and already you already know you’ll be paying reduced because you’re buying something m0bi1e the mall, not your neighborhood.
However, with Xolo bundling its 4G smartphone with Bharti Airtel, I’m sure its retail stores will soon start carrying the devices, too. At the very least they’ll be an alternative for purchasing a 4G device. So what does this mean for current subscribers and new clients? Probably, you will find competitive pricing, aligned similarly between both operators. However, the largest gain will likely be for Reliance Jio, because they will get access to Bharti Airtel’s 4G LTE network.
Reliance Jio and another operator, Aircel , are now trying to secure second place with 4G LTE offerings across India, now using this arrangement, clearly, Reliance Jio is in the lead. However, we have seen reports of poor quality service on Bharti Airtel’s existing 4G LTE network, and in turn, this might also reflect negatively on Reliance Jio too. Additionally arrangement, it is always good to see both operators expanding in several regions across India, again to prevent overlap and duplication. By consolidating expansion into mutually exclusive areas, both operators still will benefit and gain from the general arrangement.
