MapMyIndia has launched Buzz, a 7’ android device that offers comprehensive work and play solutions for car travelers (rear seat and beyond).
MapmyIndia Buzz claims to sport an intelligent UI that can be customized for your specific needs. At a glance you will be updated on the key information on the move. The home screen can be set to provide Location based information of your choice like weather, news and recommendations, Points of interest – POIs (ATM, Restaurants, Hotels, Chemists etc.), speed alerts etc.
Social Location Apps (Pre-loaded)
Buzz offers a comprehensive interactive experience. It comes pre-loaded with MapmyIndia’s Social Location apps – Locate, Explore, ReachMe and MapmyIndia Maps. These apps allow users to track, interact, follow, discover new places, endorse places visited, organize parties and do other fun things with your friends.
Applications like Locate and ReachMe enhance travel safety and security as they allow you to share the journey’s progress and be live tracked by your friends and family (on permission basis). The package also offers SoS message to be sent along with your location coordinates to selected contacts in case of an emergency. This can be a life saver and a big comfort to those who are concerned about your safety and well-being.
MapmyIndia Buzz* is equipped with WiFi and can be powered by an internet hot-spot – anytime, anywhere through your smartphone or an internet dongle/router.
MapmyIndia Buzz has been priced at Rs 17,990/. We really wonder whether customers are looking to buy a tablet for specific purposes (especially when the use-cases of tablets is being debated).
Isn’t MapMyIndia better off with launching bundled apps? Will you buy a device for features?
