Over the cheapest smartphone Freedom 251, Sanjeev Bhatia, Founder & Chairman, Advantage Computers (ADCOM) commented – “Touted to be the biggest scam of the millennium, Freedom 251, had recently announced that it would give out 25 lakh handsets in the first phase before June this year. Ensued by such unrealistic price rates and naïve pronouncements, the parent company ‘Ringing Bells’ was not only accused of running a disgraceful ploy, but has also relabeled our brand ADCOM. To clear the air around, I would like to underline few facts pertaining to case, as this scam exhibits the potential of maligning our brand name ADCOM which is our trademark since 2001. Yes , it is true that, although we sold the handsets to ‘Ringing Bells’ earlier, like we sell ADCOM mobiles to lacs of users; we were absolutely unaware of the reselling plans of the company in question. Furthermore, we still haven’t been able to evaluate their pricing policy, as we sold the handsets at Rs. 3, 600 per unit. We are deeply grieved by this incident where our mobile phone has been presented to masses for Rs. 251, and therefore, would not hesitate from taking any legal actions against the company, in case the entire fiasco impacts ADCOM’s brand name or subsequently we face any other kind of losses. We would also like to assert that ADCOM is in no way connected or linked with Ringing Bells or Freedom 251 and bears no responsibility what so ever, in the whole swindle and regret the inconvenience caused to our valued customers from all over the country.”
