Samsung launches i899 Android smartphone on RCom's EVDO network

8 Jul

Last week, we had reported that RCom will get India’s first CDMA Android smartphone in the form of the Samsung i899. Today, the news just became official. RCom has launched the Android smartphone, which will run on its EVDO enabled network, giving users the ability to browse the web at high speeds that can go up to 3.1 Mbps (in theory).



Priced at Rs 19,900, the i899 seems to indicate a good buy, considering its specs – 3.2 inch AMOLED display, 3.2 MP camera, Wi-Fi, GPS and especially high speed Internet browsing. Plus, prepaid customers will get a month’s subscription of RCom’s Netconnect+ Internet service (up to 10 GB) while postpaid subscribers will get two months of service free (up to 15 GB). The only thing we are not sure of is which version of Android does it work on as we have a hunch that it might be working on Android 1.6.
