During the first half a year Just5 sales results reached Apple iPhone sales volume in the main Russian retail chains and numbers several tens of thousands of devices. In the year 2009 Just5 became one of the fastest-growing telecommunication brands in Russia.
Key element of the new Just5 CP11 is a very special screen. Comparing to the previous model the display got bigger: 2.2 inch. against 1.6 inch in CP10 model. But the main feature is not the size, but the location of the screen. When you press orange buttons on the both sides of the phone, the screen "jumps out" of the device' body. Now Just5 CP11 is the only one device equipped with such innovative screen and Orbita Telecom is a patent owner. Also the mobile device is equipped with a weather sensor, organizer, expanded menu and a cradle.
The product will arrive to the Russian mobile market in Q3 2010. Company also works with multiple partners worldwide to bring CP11 to mobile operator’ subscribers in USA, Canada, Europe and Asia.
