Regional mobile firm Digicel has launched its own Android smartphone, the company announced late last month.

The Digicel Smartphone DL600, which features a 3.5-inch display, uses the Android Jellybean 4.1 operating system and has a 1Ghz processor.

In a release, the company said its sights were “firmly set on ensuring that everyone can benefit from access to superfast internet speeds at affordable prices.”

The phone has a starting price of “well under $100,” the company said.

“This is all about bringing the amazing experience of 4G to as many people as possible,” said Brian Finn, commercial director at Digicel Group. “It’s about accessibility, style and affordability. Ideally suited to the youth market who want to be connected via messaging, social media and other lifestyle and information apps, the Digicel Smartphone DL600 is a fun, fully loaded Android smartphone which empowers people to do more, play more, listen more and share more.”

The phone will be available in Caribbean Digicel stores beginning in May.
