    Two week from now Facebook will be dead and Google+ will be the leading social network. Then this phone will have no use anymore.

    Just kidding.

    Phone looks very nice but this form factor UI looks very ugly in this form factor on android and most of the app not works well.

    Viewsonic will soon launch a dual sim 3G android phone in India which sports a 5 megapixel camera, HVGA Display, both sim on 3G at a time and a stylish body with metallic finish at an attractive price tag of about 15k I think that one will be a much better option.. Also micromax A70 launch has been made official which is a dual camera phone with HVGA Display and a 600 mhz processor for just rs.8000… Spice mi 410 is another better option with dual camera, 1ghz processor and many more features like a high end android device for just rs 14000.

    So think twice before purchasing this for an exorbitant price of 16000

    Looks pretty awesome with the Design and Features too, the names kind of weird though. :P I hope it comes down to a decent price. 15k is kind of more compared to the Devices coming now a days or will be launched in future.

    Hope to give it a try.

    Thank you TelecomTalk for the Update!
