According to its creators, the smartphone was designed to meet the the needs of its Tico users and costs much less than similar mobile phones.

Carlos Fernández, spokersperson for Agora, says the development and design took less than a year, but the idea was around for some time in the small technology importing company.

The product was launched last Friday. Maury Roque, president and founder of Agora Wholesale, said the vision behind the development of the device was for a national phone that “meets the needs and requirements of today’s market” and with superior technical support for customers.

Selling at a price of ¢65.000 colones (US$130), the Android device has two cameras (front and back), 2Gb ram, GPS features, capacity for two SIM chips and Wi-Fi connection.
