NaMomania or NaMonitus : take your own sides in this fight on the webosphere

The political arena of India in currently in full poll mode with the General Elections scheduled in 2014 and the two prime contenders for the PMs chair are UPA led by Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party.  The BJP has already named Narendra Modi as the Chairman of the Central Election Campaign Committee.  Which in all probability means that BJP if voted into power will name Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India.

Narendra Modi or NaMo as he is popularly called has created a schism in the virtual world too.  There are pro-NaMo techies and there are Anti NaMo ones.  This post brings the two of them together for you to decide whether the webway is suffering from NaMomania or NaMonitus!

NaMomania or NaMonitus : take your own sides in this fight on the webosphere

First up is a smart phone featuring Android OS called Namo (Next-generation Android Module Odyssey) by smartnano.com is a declared fan site of NaMo.  The website says  "We are fans of Shri, Narendra Modi, our forthcoming future leader of our great nation India, we are manufacturing latest Android handset dedicated to the IRONMAN of modern India, We are from land of Gujarat & in electronic smartphone business in China NAMO stands for Narendra Modi and Next Generation Android Mobile Odyssey.  Our product is our way of dedication & respect to our great nation leater.  We will be launching NAMO Android handset with Shri Narendra Modi “signature edition.”
The website however has scant details of the proposed smart phone, its pricing or the date from which it will be available.  The website though gives the following specs :
1 GB RAM + 16 GB ROM
2 GB RAM + 16 GB ROM
2 GB RAM + 32 GB ROM
2 GB RAM + 64 GB ROM
1.5 Ghz MT6589 Turbo Chipset
13 MP Camera
Corning Glass 2
Screen 5 inches
This is the pro NaMo techies at work obviously undergoing the NaMomania but there is another group which resurrected the website NarendraModiPlans.com.  When you visit this site you will be led to a window which states that Narendra Modi plans for India and further adds

NaMomania or NaMonitus : take your own sides in this fight on the webosphere

Well in a shadowed reference to the Narendra Modi not having any certain model of development for India, the GET DETAILS button keeps running away the moment you try to click it. 

This group made up of two gentlemen from Mumbai certainly suffers from NaMonitus. For a full story on this, you may visit the Times of India’s website here. You can visit both the website and guage the frenzy of political play taking place on the webzone.

You may further comment on any of Pro NaMo or anti NaMo sites you may have encountered or will encounter in the comments section so that other readers can read about the same.
