Idea Launches Android 4.0 Ivory For Rs 7400
ICS handset offers 1 GHz CPU, 3.2 mp camera, and dual-SIM functionality.
Indian mobile operator, Idea Cellular has added another smarphone to its portfolio. Dubbed as the Idea Ivory, the phone was unveiled by southern superstar Mahesh Babu. The handset features dual-SIM (GSM) functionality with support for 3G. Like most affordable smartphones, this one's based on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) as well. The Ivory is powered by a 1 GHz processor, and has 512 MB of RAM. Its 3.5" capacitive screen has pixel dimensions 320x480. Apart from that, you get a 3.2 mp camera and 4 GB internal storage. Here's the detailed list of features:
- 3.5" capacitive screen with 320x480 pixels.
- 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM.
- 4 GB internal storage, MicroSD card slot (supports up to 32 GB).
- 3.2 megapixel front camera, front-facing VGA camera.
- Dual-SIM (GSM), Supports 3G.
- Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth (not confirmed).
- 1300 mAh battery.
- Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
The Idea Ivory is priced at Rs 7400, and is available at major mobile retail stores across the country. To attract consumers, Idea has also put on offer 1 GB of free data every month for first 3 months and free internet TV at a special price of Rs. 261. Despite these offers though, I find the Ivory's price to be on the higher side, especially when phones with better specs such as the Micromax A68 and Lava's Iris 400 are a grand cheaper.
