In mid 2015, Kodak has entered the cell phone market by launching the Kodak IM5 cell phone. Also it launched the budget TVs in the Indian market beginning from as low as Rs. 13,500. In any case, this week, the organization has a launched another Android fueled cell phone called Kodak Ektra. It will be accessible for sale from December 9th in Europe for £499 (approximately Rs 36,000) which is more than double of the cost of the before launched IM5 cell phone.

The original Kodak Ektra Camera was launched in 1941 and in its latest reincarnation, opens up a world of creative opportunities to all who care about photography.”
