Telecom Extends Worldmode Roaming Range

Telecom Extends Worldmode Roaming Range

Telecom has launched the latest addition to its range of WorldMode roaming mobile phones - the OKTA Mondo.

The new Mondo operates on both the CDMA and GSM networks allowing New Zealanders to seamlessly roam in around 140 countries.

Telecom General Manager Business Solutions Greg McAlister said the Mondo is an important addition to Telecom’s WorldMode roaming device offering.

“New Zealanders are seeing the benefits of being able to roam without having to worry about what type of mobile network they’re using and we’re pleased to be expanding their handset options further,” says Mr McAlister.

Mr McAlister expects the phone’s roaming capabilities coupled with a camera, MP3 player, Xtra email and Internet access will make it a popular choice for New Zealanders.

“We’ve been experiencing solid demand for our WorldMode range of mobile phones and the Mondo with its strong feature set, at an affordable price, is very attractive even for people who don’t roam.”

In addition to a host of features, the clamshell Mondo has an internal memory of 128 MB RAM and personal management tools including the ability to store up to 1000 contacts, a calender and alarm functions.

The OKTA Mondo will retail for $399 and is available from Telecom stores and dealers as well as at the Telecom online mobile store.

Telecom will be adding to the WorldMode range in March with the launch of two new devices.
