Fone Arena was started back when I was still in college in 2005 with a mission to help Indian consumers with their mobile phone purchase. Till date , FoneArena has helped over 500 million consumers not only in India but around the globe with their gadget purchase. Prior to founding Fone Arena , I operated Tera Centric – a web consulting firm specializing in providing web hosting, domains and web development services. I have been a strong advocate for web standards and also been part of the Mobile Monday group and was founder of the Chennai chapter.
