Narendra Modi fans launch Namo Android smartphone

Narendra Modi fans launch Namo
Android smartphone
July 27, 2013
A group, claiming to be "independent
body of fans of Shri Narendra Modi",
has launched the Namo Android
smartphone that will be available
'soon'.
Namo, is short of course for
Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister of
Gujarat, and Chairman of Central
Election Campaign Committee of
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), one of
India's leading political parties. Namo
is also, the group shares, short for,
Next-generation Android Mobile
Odyssey, as the Namo phone is
based on Android.
Explaining the motivation in releasing
the phone, the group says on its
website, "We are fans of Shri,
Narendra Modi, our forthcoming
future leader of our great nation
India, we are manufacturing latest
Android handset dedicated to the
IRONMAN of modern India."
The website is scant on details about
Namo, the smartphone, though it
does mention some of the
specifications. Namo will sport a 5-
inch Corning Glass 2 display and be
powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core
Mediatek MT6589 chipset. It will have
a 13-megapixel camera. The phone
will supposedly come in 4 variants,
with the amount of RAM and internal
storage varying between 1-2GB and
16-64GB respectively. There's no
word yet on the price or availability
of Namo smartphone.
To be clear, it seems what the group
plans to do is import off-the-shelf
smartphones from China to rebrand
and market them, similar to what
many other Indian smartphone
brands are already doing. Will the
group be around to service the Namo
smartphone if and when it runs into
issues is anyone's guess.
"We are from land of Gujarat & in
electronic smartphone business in
China," the group says. "Our product
is our way of dedication & respect to
our great nation leader. We will be
launching NAMO Android handset
with Shri Narendra Modi "signature
edition", for which process in under
way! We will launch our handset very
soon...
