Spice D-88 and D-80 Dual Mode Handsets announced in India


Spice Dual Mode Handsets Yesterday, Spice Mobile launched dual-mode handsets, the D-88 and the D-80 that supports both GSM as well CDMA based mobile connections.

The innovative feature about the new D-88 phone is that it supports GSM and CDMA active connections at the same time. On the other hand the D-80 supports two GSM active connections. Thus, this phone is suitable for travelers operating in the local area.

“The new phone is targeted to all who have two cell phone numbers and have been looking for a convenience of carrying just one phone, we are targetting mainly the consumers of town and rural areas. By 2010, our target in the market share will surge to 10 per cent,” Kunal Ahooja CEO, Spice Mobile Ltd.

Spice has also announced to launch a “people’s phone” to cost less than Rs 1,000. Spice would start manufacturing these low-cost handsets by 2008.

The D-80 handset will be available in the Indian market at Rs. 9,849/-, while the price of the D-88 has not been announced yet.

    plz relpy
    thank you

  33. Balakrishnan

    Hai all
    This reply is for all of you. Spice d88 is available in Bangalore and other major cities. Phone is working fine. No worry. No known sales centers in Kerala. Service person contact number for Kochi is 9447175191. This is an average phone. Dont expect all the functions of a PDA phone. Price is from 9050 and tax 330. The only prime speciality of the phone is that it can hold two SIMs make both lines available simultaneously. MRP of the phone is 9848 but no need to pay that much. This is an ordinary BAR phone. Those who want more style and the day’s latest features may not go for it. It is meant for people who are inevitably compelled to use two lines in different handsets. D88 is for those having reliance/tata and any other GSM and D80 for those who have two GSM connections. My answer is clear.

  34. Pratikkumar

    I tried to buy D88 at Chennai and could not find one. The shopwallahs say it has some display problems and they withdrew it. Any truth in it?

    web site of spice mobile dual model d-88 is http://www.spicemobile.in..

    this is a fine mobile.it supports both cdma(uim), and gsm(sim) cards.

    battery back up also ok. one beauty is along with hand set they are giving two batters.
    but one thing i am unable to congigure GPRS/WAP in that mobile and i am not satisfied with camara quality. but overall i recomend dual model spice mobile

    n s n srinivas

  64. addadutta

    I have purchased the phone yesterday. I am observing a strange issue. When I open phonebook, it shows all the entries in the phone.
    But when I select a letter, it does not show all the entries corresponding to the letter available in the phonebook but just a limited number of entries. I donot know on what basis does it select the entries.
    Have anyone of you faced this issue?

  65. Jasheel Raut

    I have purchased the phone yesterday D-88, the piece is good slim and light weight. Battery is ok. we have got 2 battries. Camera quality is not upto the mark( quality not good, not clear visible) only in daylight means in sunlight the picutres are clear, but in office or home light is reuired to get the clear picture.
    FM not availble, connectivity of GPRS and CDMA not possible, it says that the software failure in the modem.
    If you want to save a extra no to a existing name which is already in the phone book, you cannot add to the contacts from the cell, the nos. may be in missed calls, received calls or dailed calls or from the message, it will create a new contact name instead. in other cells you can add to the contact easliy. You have to mug up the no and then go the phone book memory to add the nos.
    CAn i get the neareast delear name or address. I stay at kandivali.

  66. Shashikant

    I have Purchased D88 in this Deewali.
    My set is very good.

    I want to connect net through “RIM”
    But my laptop ask about CD Which i havnt got.

    And how to Convert any film in 3 GP Formate.
    So If there is any suggestion pl give me.

  67. MyFundsManager

    Great idea. I carry TATA CDMA and Airtel GSM and it is cumbersome. I would love to have one. Prices around Rs.7300/- (very good). I hope it is smart enough to switch between networks and I do not miss my calls.

  68. Manu Gupta

    I need urgent and complete information about the features, functions, best offer prize of Spice D-88 mobile and tell me the correct method of online purchase ( with fully satisfied guarrantee/ warrantee and after sale services) of best Offer Prize.

  69. Balakrishnan

    Many criticisms arised against D88 above are not correct. Many are outcomes of ignorance. But many are true. Especially the concerns about reliance netconnect are just because manual of configuration problems. We blame a product wisely not because of our ignorance in handling that product.

  70. svs kiran

    first i was using four handsets.then three.now i am using d-88.after using this handset i feel happy for not using two mobiles.i ask the spice people to give some more better options in this set.

    3. MMS does not work.
    4. With great difficulty managed the WAP to work. Still MMS does not work.
    5. The Browser is Sick (needs to load each time we exit, cannot go to the last page / site surfed. U have to start all over again with the homepage.
