“Idea has always innovated to support the telecom services penetration in the country. In line with this commitment, we have introduced yet another affordable and fully loaded 3G Smartphone ‘ID-918’. Our first 2 smartphones ‘Blade’ and ‘ID-280’ saw higher uptake due to their multitasking capabilities and vast range of preloaded application. We have noticed good response and rapid uptake of our 3G services due to Idea smarphones’
