Booking for World’s Cheapest smartphone, Freedom 251 has temporarily paused due to the heavy traffic. Accourding to the company, they are getting around 6 lacs hits per second and so they temporarily paused the booking Now if we are going to click the Buy button on the website, we are getting a message saying.
“Dear friends, we are very grateful for your enormous response and your kind patronage and would submit that as of now we received approx. 6 Lacs hits per second as a result of your kind overwhelming response, servers are over loaded. We humbly submit that we are therefore taking a pause and upgrading the service and will revert within or before 24 hours. Once again our respectful thanks and gratitude for your support and patience. We look forward your return as soon as we are back online well within 24 hours.”
Earlier after the launch of the mobile, the company was getting a large number of orders and this may be the main reason for them to stop the booking. Though the phone is priced at Rs 251, one may have to shell out an additional Rs 40 as shipping charges. This means, you are paying Rs 291 overall for the phone. And also the delivery will take 4 months too.
