Jul 05, 2008 News Comments Off on GT&T uncages the ‘Bird’
The Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company yesterday unveiled to the media its latest line of mobile phones, the ‘Bird.’
Following weeks of teaser advertisements, the telecommunications giant introduced what can only be described as the most competitive range of mobile phones in Guyana, given that the features will be available for under $30,000. The phones will be on sale to the public from Tuesday.
Among the features available on the new range of phones are Internet browsing, blue tooth technology, Mp3 and Mp4 capability, FM frequency, handwriting recognition technology, touch panel capacity, dual SIM capacity, games and video players, among others.
Director of Marketing and Sales, Wystan Robertson, speaking at the launching ceremony, said that GT&T was just continuing on the successful year thus far and staying true to its slogan of ‘Best Network, Strongest Signal.’
According to Robertson, this year has already seen a number of successful promotions, to which customers have responded well. Among them, Robertson highlighted the low top up earlier in the year, dubbed the Guava Season.
He also pointed to the fact that text messages have now been virtually reduced to free. This has led to a 300 per cent increase in text messages. There is also the push e-mail service.
The phones that were unveiled yesterday were described as fashionable and affordable with the features in demand.
“This extra slim, lightweight design is the perfect multimedia business phone for stylish and sophisticated individuals,” Robertson said.
The Bird phone, according to Robertson, was being manufactured by Lingbo Bird Company, which also makes phones such as Sagem, among others.
In adding a guarantee to the quality of the phone, the marketing director said that the phones are currently being used by some 50 million subscribers around the world.
Ningbo Bird is a high technology company established in October 1992, recognized by the State, Ministry of Science and Technology, and by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, headquartered in Fenghua, Zhejiang Province.
Bird is listed on the stock market exchange in China as one of the largest mobile phone companies. Bird produces primarily mobile phones, palm computers and systems equipment.
In 2005, Bird first integrated the advanced technology to introduce the MP4 series of mobile phones, combining the entertainment technologies of cameras, videos, music playing and movies viewing functions, which are one more massive upgrade in design after the MP3 series, and are now available to the Guyanese public at an affordable cost.
