Reliance JioPhone Dual SIM Handset to be available from October

Reliance JioPhone Dual SIM Handset to be available from October

The device will also come with TV-Cable that will allow users to connect their JioPhone with TV ( not only Smart TVs but also CRT TVs) to watch live TV.

Deutsche Bank raised similar concerns on the grounds that apps on the JioPhone are from its own store, which has apps spanning social, content and payments verticals.

JioPhone could be purchased for Rs 1,500 (which is refundable after three years).

JioPhone does not have the popular messaging platform WhatsApp.

Net neutrality backers said although on first look the model did not appear to be violating internet access rules, there wasn't enough immediate clarity on whether the just-announced device will limit usage to select apps chosen by Jio.

Matt Kuchar places second at Open, says runner-up finish 'hurts'
Spieth's dramatic victory at the 146th Open Championship channeled Brady's Super Bowl LI comeback against the Falcons. But thanks to Greller's yardage calculation, the ball still ended up in a good spot, just to the right of the green.

"We believe the JioPhone should support mass market adoption of 4G data, but prices are not ARPU dilutive".

The overall user base of Jio now stands at a whopping 123.4 million, said the Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) said at its annual general meeting. As of now, the single SIM variant will be up for sale but there will be a JioPhone Dual SIM variant too. "In it, the first SIM slot will be locked for Jio SIM and the second one can be used with SIM from any other operator". Mukesh Ambani, who has invested more than $20 billion in the telecom venture, has taken a fearless decision to bring out the JioPhone with single SIM though Indians are eager to buy double SIM phones. Currently, we estimate the unique subscriber base in India is around 1bn consisting of 150m 4G phones, 300m of 3G phones and 550m of feature phones. British mobile phone giant Vodafone is merging its Indian unit with Idea Cellular to help fend off Jio, which is backed by Reliance Industries-India's immensely wealthy energy-to-chemicals conglomerate headed by Ambani. This sum will be fully refunded at the end of 3 years.

It further said Jio Phone is likely doesn't have android OS.

Jio has signed up 125 million subscribers since its launch in September 2016, causing a rush to consolidation in the multi-billion-dollar sector as competitors scramble to match its deep pockets.
