Gowell, a Shenzhen-based mobile phone OEM
, says it has customers in Asia--namely India and China--South America and Europe. A representative told ZDNet Asia that the base price of a phone is from US$22 to US$120 and handset vendors usually resell the phones at double the price. Each phone model is only sold to one player in each geographical market, she noted.
According to the spokesperson, the phones are based on the company's proprietary hardware and software, which are developed in its research and development (R&D) center. Most of the phones include dual-SIM capability.
ZDNet Asia was unable to take close-up shots of the handsets as some are still prototypes.
