Nokia Enters Air-Conditioner Market In India
New Delhi: Popular cellphone maker Nokia on Monday announced its entry in the air-conditioner market with Made-in-India ACs.
This is Nokia’s first home appliance product and the AC range starts at a price of Rs 30,999. It will be sold on Flipkart from December 29. Recently, Nokia launched TVs and laptops on Flipkart.
The air-conditioner, which is inverter driven with R-32 refrigerant, has smart features like intelligent motion sensors, filter clean reminder, 6-in-1 fliters, self cleaning and WiFi connected and comes with climate control.
Speaking on the launch of Nokia ACs, Dev Iyer, Vice President – Private Brands, Flipkart, said, “We are excited to extend our collaboration with Nokia to bring ‘Made-in-India’ Nokia air-conditioners to consumers.”
“Over the course of last year, we have launched superior products, at the back of our extensive consumer understanding, to bring offerings that are customised for the needs of Indian consumers. Smart home appliances have paved their way into households that ask for ‘more’ from their devices, and hence with this latest launch of Nokia air-conditioners we wanted to bring innovation beyond just cooling – to give both multifunctional and environmentally friendly experience to consumers,” Iyer further said.
