Samsung launches Mpower 699 CDMA phone powered by OMH tech

Samsung MPower 699

 

Samsung teamed up with Qualcomm to bring Mpower 699 slider phone in India that is claimed to be the world’s first OMH (Open Market Handset) CDMA handset. Earlier, users had to buy a phone from a particular CDMA operator to use their service but with OMH enabled handset, a user now only needs an OMH SIM card from any operator and can use on this phone.

The use of OHM tech equipped phones is said to help CDMA sector, where GSM is huge in country like India. The phones with OHM tech also support existing R-UIM/SIM cards.

Regarding the phone features, it’s a basic slider phone with 1.3MP camera, music player, FM Radio, microSD slot and Mobile Tracker. It will sell for Rs. 7,100.

Though the phone specs is on the lower side, we can expect feature packed CDMA handsets as Samsung plans to sell future handsets in the open market with OMH tech.
