Swipe Technologies has launched a new smartphone today, the Virtue, priced at Rs. 5,999.
The company in November last year launched its Swipe Junior smartphone for kids at the same price tag. Some of the highlights of the Swipe Junior smartphone include a customised UI for kids with features such as geo-tracking and geo-fencing to track a child’s movement. The phone lets parents set safe and danger zones for kids. The Junior smartphone also allows parents to monitor a child’s app usage pattern. The app management system also allows parents to allow or block apps on the device. Another notable feature is SOS button on the device that is basically one-step dialling to a pre-defined contact. The handset also features shock proof and break protective casing.
And again swipe is back with another amazing phone.
