Mumbai, 20th April, 2011: In a bid to empower differently–abled people with easy and technologically advanced devices, Intex Technologies today announced the launch of INTEX VISION –a mobile phone especially designed for visually impaired. The phone was unveiled by National Association for the Blind (NAB) amongst its students and faculty. NAB is the largest non-government, voluntary organization in India.

Developed at Intex’s Centre for Design & Development, the Dual SIM phone (GSM+GSM) has a large Braile keypad to facilitate recognition of digits. People, who are not conversant with Braile, could switch on the ‘Talking Keypad’ feature which speaks out in English the number they have pressed. Keeping in mind communication needs in emergency, the phone has a unique SOS feature which allows you to save four emergency numbers. By pressing the SOS button, the call gets automatically directed to the first emergency number.

Intex Technologies has a legacy of developing innovative products and solutions for customers across various segments; by creating such a device, the company has set another example of its product versatility. Commenting on the launch, Mr. Shailendra Jha, DGM-Telecom, Intex Technologies said, “Intex believes that simple and affordable technology can do wonders in enhancing quality of life of differently-abled people. India has the largest number of blind people in the world and NAB is the best platform in the countryto reach to them. INTEX Vision is just a small gesture to help empower the visually impaired population by bringing connectivity within easy reach”

“Blindness is a disability which could be overcome with training and guidance. The INTEX Vision phone is an ideal tool for the visually impaired people to satisfy their communication needs. It can play a very useful role in their integrated development” said Mr. Mohinder Kapur, President, National Association for the Blind.

With a very simple user interface, the phone has a robust ‘no-frills’ design with lots of entertainment & utility features like wireless FM radio, audio player, expandable memory up to 2 GB, torch light, auto call record, mobile tracker, dedicated one-touch key for locking the keypad, a phone and SMS memory of 1000 contacts and 250 messages respectively.

For the safety of the users, the FM antenna has been thoughtfully housed in the panel below the phone to avoid its accidental contact with the eyes. The backlight has a soothing orange tone which does not affect the eyes and hence caters to those with a partially impaired vision.

Priced at INR 2600 (street price), INTEX Vision is an example of technological advancement to make life more enjoyable for the differently-abled.
