India: Tata Indicom launches Fly Mobile CG 588, a dual-network (CDMA+GSM) capable QWERTY phone

Tata Indicom, Tata’s CDMA-based carrier, announced a new phone it’s adding to its lineup, and it’s interesting from a few points of view.

Meet the Fly Mobile CG 588. This isn’t a dual SIM phone, since Tata Indicom’s network is CDMA. Instead, it’s a dual-network type phone, able to operate both on Tata Indicom’s CDMA network and another GSM network at the same time.

It’s also a phone that packs a physical QWERTY keyboard, and as such should appeal to heavy texters. The CG 588 also comes with Fly Buzz, an application that is described as being a combination of Nimbuzz and Snaptu, allowing its users to connect to IM networks as well as social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

The Fly Mobile CG 588 has a QVGA (320×240) display, a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, microSD card support (a 2GB card is included in the sales package), FM radio, 3.5 mm headset jack and a big 1500 mAh battery that should comfortably last a couple of days at least even with very heavy use.

The phone costs Rs.4795 (or approximately $108) and that may be a very decent price for what it offers.
