‘We are not making smartphones. But we are making dumb phones, Smart, he said adding it took six months to develop the software.
Middle East, Africa, tier II towns and villages in India would be targeted, he said.
According to Abhinav, the company was in talks with mobile phone manufacturers, including Nokia and Micromax, to pre-install ‘Innoz OS’ in basic model phones. The OS will communicate with the internet through SMS, he said.
