More than the Government it is the Tech Companies coming up with superb ideas to protect women it seems. With many new safety apps making their way to phones, Indian citizens have some hope of security, specially women. It is now iBall’s turn to offer something for women. The Mumbai-based company has recently launched the Andi Uddaan, targeted at women. iBall deserves a big salute for taking the initiative towards the safety of women, becoming the first phone in India that includes great safety features.
The girly new gadget is studded with hearts and crystals on the homescreen and the dual colored body (ivory and pink). The company offers an awesome pink back cover, a pink flip cover and pink purse along with the regular accessories in the box. Uddaan’s unique feature is not the pinkish phone, but the SOS button at the back, shaped like a heart. It sets off a loud alarm when pressed, alerting people nearby. The best part is that phone calls are made and text messages are sent automatically to five pre-set emergency contacts.
