What’s probably one of the interesting devices announced by the company is the Trooper 6.0 which is a 6-inch phablet that will only cost £129 at launch. With a price this low several compromises have been made including the use of a dual core processor and a RAM of only 512 MB. Atkins however says that not everyone wants a blistering performance on their devices and this device caters to that market segment.

The company also announced a service called “Kazam Rescue” which is available on weekdays between 9am to 8pm and on weekends between 10am to 6pm. This service allows an owner of a Kazam device to call the company to have their handset fixed remotely by a technician. If it can’t be done remotely then the device will have to be sent for repair. Additionally, the company is also offering a free replacement on the first cracked screen.
