Ringing Bells Doing a Great Job in Promoting Freedom 251
There’s been a lot of debate on the internet about the cheapest smart phone in India named Freedom 251 launched by Noida-based Ringing Bells. The most discussed issue about this smart phone is that, it blatantly violates Apple copyright. Does the phone really violates Apple’s copyright? This question was asked to Ringing Bells technical head Vikas Sharma by Hindustan Times and his answer was “We used Apple’s icons because Apple hasn’t copyrighted its designs.” Well, guidelines for using apple trademark and copyrights clearly suggests that Apple does have copyrighted it’s designs.
Now let’s get to the point, Ringing Bells how good are they with promoting this smartphone? Our team stumbled across this comment in their Facebook Page.
This wasn’t the only comment that would make us doubt how good their service is going to be. I have to say they are pretty good at their English, hope it won’t be the same with the device.
