The company has plans to launch two 7 inches and 10 inches in size Android base
tablet PC. The Windows model will be 10 inches in size. "These shall be WiFi and
3G powered and the price range will be below 10,000 - shattering the price barrier
once again," Pathak said.
While declaring its India business plan, the company said that it has also extended
the warranty of its mobile phones to 500 days as against the industry average of
365 days. As part of its business expansion plan, G'Five is conducting feasibility
study for mobile phones manufacturing in India.
The company is in the process of tying up with retail operators who have chain of
stores across the country. G'Five also said that it plans to launch other consumer
electronic products in 2011, which will include net books, laptops, music boxes,
digital photo frames and other such products.
G'Five has been declared one of the top 10 mobile phone brands globally by Gartner's

that International Data Corporation (IDC) in Q3, 2010 declared G'Five as the second
largest selling mobile phone brand in India after Nokia.
G'Five said that it is seeking more channel partners across the country, not just
in metro cities but in tier-two and tier-three cities as well.
