Spice likely to launch Android smartphones in India this week

17 Aug

spic mobile android phoneSpice is holding a press conference with Qualcomm on August 19 in New Delhi and we have a fair idea what it is all about. In all likelihood, Spice will launch its first Android smartphone based on Qualcomm’s MSM 7227 SoC platform. Launched as the Mi300 in Malaysia a month ago, the smartphone has a 3.2 inch HVGA display, a 5.0 MP camera, a 3.5 mm audio jack and the works…



What we would be looking out, however, is for the Mi700 – an Internet Tablet running on Android and sporting a 7.0-inch display. Spice was scheduled to announce it in August and the timing seems perfect. If launched, it would compete directly with the Olivepad, which is priced at about Rs 25,000 in India but is not yet available in India. We will be covering the event live on Twitter on August 19. Stay tuned in.

    I doubt a phone priced at 25k will sell a lot from a second tier supplier

      The Internet Tablet might cost Rs 25,000. The phone should be priced between Rs 10,000-12,000.
