Samsung launches Android phone at under Rs 14,000 in India

29 Jan

After getting a luke-warm response to its first Android phone, the Galaxy, Samsung has now introduced the Galaxy Spica, the cheapest Android phone available in India.

Priced below Rs 14,000, the Spica has better specs than the HTC Tattoo, which currently retails at around Rs 17,000.

While both the Spica and Tattoo have Wi-Fi, HSDPA and GPS connectivity, the Spica has a larger 3.2 inch touchscreen with a 320×480 pixel resolution, while the Tattoo has a 2.8 inch touchscreen with a resolution of 320×240 pixels. Both phones have a 3.2 MP camera.

We found the Spica to be better looking than the Tattoo and it simply gives more bang for your buck.

It is after a year since the launch of Android that we are finally seeing a mainstream device in the market.

By the end of next week, there will be six Android phones available in India – Acer Liquid (launching next week), HTC Hero, HTC Magic, HTC Tattoo, Samsung Galaxy and Samsung Galaxy Spica. But don’t be surprised if this number doubles in the next couple of months as we have some more Android love coming our way from Motorola, HTC and Garmin Asus.
