Mobile Expo 2005 kicks off in Delhi

Top handset manufacturers converged at the Mobile Expo 2005 held in New Delhi on Wednesday to showcase their latest range of handsets. TRAI Chairman, Pradip Baijal, inaugurated the exhibition. Nokia MD Sanjeev Sharma, National President, Indian Cellular Association Pankaj Mohindroo, Spice Net CEO, Kunal Ahooja, Chairman CII Subodh Bhargava and CII President Sunil Kant Munjal were present at the event.

At the inauguration function, Baijal said, "The economic liberalisation gave the opportunity for the Indian industry to grow in a substantial way." The telecom segment is growing substantially, he said, adding: "The tele density for the past two years has been at 2 per cent. There has been incremental growth so far and we are expecting that it would go up to three to four per cent by the end of next fiscal."

Sharma said, "The 'mobility industry' is not just about mobile phones or infrastructure anymore. It has become an integral part of the converged digital industry. Consumer electronics, communications, IT and media industries are all transforming, and Nokia is in a key position to drive the transformation with compelling products and superior technological understanding."

At the event, the manufacturers showcased the latest range of handset models. Sony Ericsson showcased J200i, K508i, K700i, S700i. Nokia launched its new series, N9300, N7270, N7280.
