It was on 21st of the last month. When Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance Jio Industries limited (RJIL) officially unveiled the so called India ka smartphone, The Jio Phone. The blast it had created then, on the Indian citizens, is beyond my scope to describe. At the same time, we all know that still it’s not accessible for the common people such as us, till now. But, true to the Mukesh Ambani’s words said at Jio AGM. The Jio Phone will now be available to take pre-order from the public starting from today evening 5:30p.m onwards. Excited! aren’t you?
The Jio official website has already put up the banner for inviting pre-orders on Jio Phone’s dedicated page. As we already know, pre-ordering can be done online as well as offline through authorized Jio retailers. In addition, payment of Rs. 1,500 as one-time refundable security deposit is made mandatory.

Jio Phone features
Just now I have gone through the detailed specs that Jio Phone has to offer us. And after that I am totally boggled. Still thinking, what actually is the difference between a feature phone and a smartphone. Once you go through the features(provided below) Jio Phone boards you may realise that it is a smartphone disguised under a feature phone price tag.
Running forked version of Firefox OS, known as KaiOS, albeit a bummer. The JioPhone comes in two variants. One powered with Spreadtrum processor or other having much sorted out and popular Qualcomm 205(MSM 8905) Mobile Platform. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, GPS and wifi. Amazing isn’t it? Not over, their are other bundle of features which only increases your craze for the JioPhone.
