Leading conglomerate Videocon, which has forayed into mobile handset space, has said that it plans to achieve a pan-India presence by end of February and roll out 15 more models of handsets in two months in addition to exploring the option of coming out with 3-G handsets.

"We will be going beyond soft launches and will aim at having a pan-India presence. We will expand our footprint this month and fill in the balance by end of next month and have pan-India presence by end of February", Rahul Goel, COO, Videocon Mobile Phones said in the wake of the launch of the company's mobile handsets in Karnataka.

"Videocon has 12 models currently; we are not in the black and white space. We understand there is a huge requirement for dual SIM phones and we are looking at developing more phones in that region", he said, adding, "we are looking at launching 15 more models in the next two months".

On whether 3-G phone was on the company's roadmap, he said, "We are positioning Videocon in the high end space as well and will be coming up with high end QWERTY phones and phones with 3-G capability".

On the time frame for coming out with the 3-G model, he said, currently, it was not possible to ascribe any specific time frame but once the private sector gets access to the 3-G spectrum, it would be a matter of a month before the product would be rolled out, he said.
