Uses of the Product
The Product is targeted at visually challenged people and will enable them to use mobile phones like others. They will be able to identify the battery level, network connectivity/signal strength and so on. It also has a mobile locator facility and acknowledgement while typing number or SMS.
Uniqueness of the Product
This is the only phone specially designed for visually challenged people and addresses the gaps in the currently available cell phones for use by blind. Currently available cell phones for visually challenged have Braille embossed on the keys of the cell phone. Some are voice operated but, they do not have the features that make the use of the cell phones significantly friendly for the visually challenged people.
The cost of the product is expected to be around 7000-8000 which is quite competitive considering the features of the Product.
