If you are tired of downloading caller tunes by dialling boring alpha-numerics, a download kiosk might add a new dimension to this activity. Tata Indicom launched India’s first Welcome Tune Download Kiosk at its exclusive showroom on Park Street. The kiosk was inaugurated by percussionist Bickram Ghosh. “The combination of music and technology doesn’t get better than this. Downloading has become the most popular way of accessing music these days; I am very excited about this format. My first download will be Kishore Kumar’s Aane wala pal,” smiled Bickram.

The kiosk is customer-friendly and there are customer-care personnel at hand for assistance. All you need to do is type your Tata Indicom number into the kiosk display unit and an SMS will be sent to the number with a password. The password allows the customer to access various categories of music, including individual artiste’s song-lists. One can also listen to music before choosing a track for download.

“This city has a great tradition when it comes to music and people are tech-friendly, so it was our first choice for launching a kiosk like this,” explained Sanjiv Kumar Sinha, COO, Tata Indicom Calcutta. “There is great variety when it comes to music; there are old favourites, instrumentals and the latest hits. The format is very user-friendly. We are planning on a number of kiosks like this across the city.” And Tata customers need not pay a single rupee for this feature. The song-lists will be regularly updated for subscribers who like to stay in tune with the latest beats.
