    hi aritrap,
    i think Simoco has FM radio only on 2 low budget phones..., other handsets not support FM...
    BTW, you know about signal reception, voice clarity and Battery backup??

    I am sure SIMOCO must be supported by some lala promoter.

    --> there marketing team has not yet managed to get a website running or they are not sure about its relevance
    --> no major bang marketing happening. Like no contests, SIMOCO as prize, sponsors, road shows etc.

    They need to do some serious publicity to attract Nokia Fan Country.

    Nothing to laugh about bro.
    Hey they are trying to build a mobile phone domestically and its a nice effort.Well for big companies like Nokia and Sony ericsson they earn millions from India but have never ever bothered to setup a shop in India.We end up paying almost twice the actual price of a mobile phone than anyone wud pay in Europe.

    please refrain from making any stupid comments about the mobile phones being bad or they suck before actually testing them.Write a proper review in the REVIEW section and post the url here.
