The Micromax Andro A60 is already out and Intex’s Rs. 5,500 Android phone is expected next month, but Huawei has launched a pre-emptive strike by releasing the Ideos, an Android-powered phone as well, in India at Rs. 8,499.
The phone is being released in partnership with Aircel and the price will include a free 2GB data download plan in case the buyer decides to go with a postpaid connection when purchasing. And while the price might not be as low as the aforementioned Micromax and Intex phones, the Ideos definitely has the chance to be better value-for-money wise, because it has some pretty decent specs. They are as follows:
- 2.8-inch Capacitive Touchscreen at 320×240
- 3.2 Megapixel Camera
- 528MHz processor
- Android 2.2 Froyo – a Vanilla version
- MicroSD slot for expandable memory upto 32GB
- 3G and HSDPA connectivity
- Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
In addition to this, the Ideos will also function as a Wi-Fi router for upto eight devices at a time, which is something we'd definitely like to check out. Anyway, the Huawei Ideos is available for purchase starting immediately at retailers or Aircel Stores. Now where’s that Huawei X5?
