LAUNCH OF THE ‘INTELLIGENT FEATURE PHONE, JIO PHONE

Reliance Industries Limited Chairman Mukesh Ambani announces the launch of the ‘intelligent feature phone, Jio Phone, at the company’s 40th AGM to loud cheers by shareholders.The Jio Phone allows free voice, SMS, data at just Rs 153 per month, while a the Jio TV cable which allows you to watch three to four hours of videos per day, costs Rs 309 per month. The effective cost of the phone is zero. The ‘zero cost’ Jio Phone has a fully refundable security deposit of Rs 1500. The customer can claim the refund after three years by returning the Jio Phone. Ambani says this will prevent misuse.
This comes roughly a year after the 2016 Reliance AGM, where Ambani announced the public launch of the Reliance Jio telecom network. The Jio Phone supports 22 Indian languages. The phone was launched on stage by Mukesh Ambani’s children, Isha and Aakash Ambani. His other son, Ananth was in the audience, seated next to his grandmother Kokilaben.
Kokilaben broke down briefly when Mukesh Ambani dedicated the achievements of the company to its founder, Dhirubhai Ambani. Several references to PM Narendra Modi during the AGM.
Ambani said Jio phone will be the “most intelligent, affordable phone” in
the world — a 4G LTE phone supporting all 24 Indian languages. Ambani says Jio committed to ending “digital disempowerment and unfairness” by providing affordable data and devices.
India has overtaken US and China in mobile data usage, says Mukesh Ambani on his telecom venture Jio. In just 6 months of Jio launch, data consumption in India went to 120 cr GB a month, from 20 cr GB. Jio has 125 million customers today, added 7 customers per second every single day.

Bengaluru, 20th July 2017:  On day six of the William Jones Cup, the Indian men’s basketball team lost 87-117 against Republic of China White, which is the Chinese Taipei National Team B.

The opposition dominated the first quarter and opened up a huge lead of 15 points. In the second quarter, the Indian men rediscovered their shooting form of the last few games and scored 31 points, but were unable to stop the Chinese offensive juggernaut.

The Indian team had four players scoring in double figures, led by Amjyot Singh Gill with 22 points. Muin Bek Hafeez impressed again, finishing with 13 points and hitting 3 of 5 shots from beyond the arc. Jeevanantham Pandi (10 points) and Anil Kumar (12 points) provided the offensive spark off the bench. Collectively, the team shot an impressive 60% from two-point range.

Eventually, the Indian men were outdone by the offensive production of the Chinese team, who had six players finish the game scoring in double figures. The Chinese Taipei men also racked up 18 steals which allowed them some easy points.

While the Indian team remains winless, these matches are vital for the young side, as the players have gained valuable minutes and will be looking to maintain this offensive form when they compete in the FIBA Asia Cup in Lebanon next month.

But for now, they will be focused on strengthening their defense when they take on Canada (represented by 3D Global Sports) on 21st July at 1100 hrs CST (0830 IST).

Republic of China White (Kyle Baron 18 pts; Yi-Jin Su 16 pts; Ying-Chun Chen 15 pts) bt India (Amjyot Singh Gill 22 pts; Muin Bek Hafeez 13 pts; Anil Kumar Gowda 12 pts) 117-87 [30-15, 36-31, 24-21, 27-20]

About the William Jones Cup

The William Jones Cup is a basketball tournament that has been held annually in Taipei since 1977. The tournament was named in honour of Renato William Jones, who was one of the founders of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA). One team represents each country, and that team could be the national team, a professional club, or a college team. The tournament will be played in a single round-robin format, and the final points tally will determine the placing of the teams.

This is the 39th edition of the tournament, and all the games will be played at the Basketball Stadium of Heping Elementary School, Taipei City.

The William Jones Cup will serve as excellent competitive exposure for India ahead of the FIBA Men’s Asia Cup to be held in Lebanon from 8th to 20th August 2017.

Last year, Phillipines’ Mighty Sports club team took gold in the men’s tournament, while South Korea and Republic of China (i.e. Chinese Taipei) – Blue finished second and third respectively. India finished 1-7 in this edition.
