Enmac launches new Islamic-oriented mobile phone

Enmac, a Malaysian company and apparently the “world leader in digital Islamic products”, has launched a new mobile phone that specifically targets the Muslim population.

The dual-SIM sporting MQ710 features the Quran in 29 languages, recitals from seven voice-actors, a zakat calculator, a Hajj pilgrim guide, and a compass that permanently points towards the Mecca.

Hardware wise, the mobile phone is rather unimpressive with a 2.4″ TFT screen with a resolution of 240×320. It also has a camera and USB 2.0 port, and comes with earphones.

Enmac is now setting sights on India, hoping to make some in-road with the 180 million Muslim population.

“India has around 180 million Muslims, and the penetration of mobile phones in that community is less. So far, we have had a tremendous response for the project. Religion has a very important place in Indian society; so has the mobile phone. Our aim was to bring a device which caters to both… a combination of both technology and religion â€" the first of its kind in India,” said Anuj Kanish to The Telegraph.

The MQ710 costs a reasonable $127, or Rs. 6,500.
