Vodafone has made a step forward in the ever rising Social Media space in India by launching a mobile phone called the “Vodafone Blue” which happens to be a fully-integrated Facebook smart phone. This phone has been developed by Vodafone in collaboration with Facebook and has popular social networking features such as status update, photo uploads and sharing along with a dedicated Facebook button.
The Vodafone Blue 555 is a QWERTY phone and resembles another similar Facebook phone from HTC, called the HTC Chacha. Priced at just Rs. 4950/- this phone is really cheap given the features it has and the deep Facebook integration it possesses.
Let us take a look at some features and specs of the Vodafone Blue 555 Facebook Phone:
2.4” QVGA screen
- Integrated music player with 3.5mm jack
- 2MP camera with flash
- Dedicated Facebook Button
- QWERTY keypad
- Optical Track Pad
- 16 GB expandable memory
- Mobile internet with email, IM
- Opera 5 browser
- 2 Years Warranty
All your Facebook messages in the Vodafone Blue appear in the handset’s inbox along with texts and email which means you get a notification on your phone the moment your friends send you a message on Facebook.
The customizable Facebook ‘F’ button on the phone can be used instantly posting a status update with photos from the gallery or with links from the browser and also can be used to check latest updates on Facebook.
We are waiting to lay our hands on the phone and will publish a review soon. The low price of the phone (Rs. 4950/- ) is the one factor that might really make it a hit.
