Ringing Bells has again delayed deliveries for the world’s cheapest smartphone – Freedom 251 – to July 8. Earlier the company has promised deliveries on June 30, then shifted the date to July 6. Interestingly the company plans to launch new phones including feature and smartphones and a cheap LED TV in India on July 7.

Ringing Bells CEO Mohit Goel, in a telephonic conversation with Indianexpress.com confirmed the delay.

“We will launch new products on July 7. We will start deliveries for our new devices, including Freedom 251 from July 8. The lucky draw will happen on July 7.”

Ringing Bells, which claims to have received 7.5 crore registrations for Freedom 251, was to start deliveries for 2 lakh handsets from June 30 initially. But the company delayed the the same confirming it will start the procedure from July 6. Now, Goel says Freedom 251 deliveries will start July 8, a day after Ringing Bells launches new devices.

Goel had earlier said the company will hold a lucky draw to give away Freedom 251 smartphones. He said the company will give out 10,000 devices to customers in 19 states. He had also said he plans to invite one lucky winner from each state to the July 7 event. Clearly, that doesn’t seem to be happening for now.

This is just one of the numerous times that Ringing Bells has delayed deliveries for Freedom 251. While company GM, Anmol Goel had earlier showed Freedom 251 in black and white colour variants, Ringing Bells doesn’t seem to be producing enough devices to deliver.

In fact Anmol says, the company does not promise delivering 2 lakh units every month to complete the 7.5 crore orders. “We may deliver more units if we get help or we may not deliver at all in the upcoming months. We are only focusing on the giving away the devices now,” he says.

    Again Why Postpone Delivery of Freedom 251 to Public? The company loss it trust from public because of not delivering only promise made like try to create line in water.
