ARBO – Artificial intelligence

Mid range segment in mobiles is highly crowded and in this crowd, Panasonic wants to stand out, not with specifications, but with software user experience. Panasonic is betting heavily on its ARBO, the AI virtual assistant. This assistant can help the user have a better mobile experience. We are yet to try it out and we will be posting our detailed review and our experience with ARBO soon.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India, said, “Further to the positive response of Eluga Ray series, we are happy to introduce two more powerful smartphones in the Eluga portfolio- Eluga A3 and A3 Pro. With the new improved features and enhanced quality, the user will be able to do so much more. The Smartphones come in 3 stunning colors – Mocha Gold, Gold and Grey which define and complement consumer’s style quotient. Also, our AI Assistant – Arbo will track and understand all your activities and help you make a schedule so that you don’t miss out on anything from your daily routine”
