Don’t be misled by the headline, the phone released by Zen is actually the second 3D phone to hit the country. The first was the Spice M-67. The S30 is certainly Zen’s first 3D phone and has a 2.4 inch display with external speakers.
While the 3D experience with Spice M-67 did not deliver as expected, we’re still looking forward to what Zen can really offer. The phone uses 3D-Stereoscopic technology with which you can view images, videos and even the interface that are in 3D, without the 3D glasses.
Users can toggle between 3D and 2D interface as they prefer. The phone has some more features like a 1.3 MP camera, FM radio, mp3/mp4 player and dual speakers. The memory can be expanded up to 8 GB and they throw in a free 2 GB card. It also has dual SIM (GSM + GSM) and dual speakers. It's priced at Rs. 4,599 which looks quite reasonable.
Zen messed up with the press release, claiming the phone to be India’s “first 3D phone”. I’m not making a big fuss about it, but you've got to know the market you’re entering into. Watch this space for a review on how this 3D compares to Spice's 3D.
