Spice Intros Entry Level Android Phone MI-310 At Rs 7500

Well we are little bit disappointed to know Huawei IDEOS is not a sub 8K android smartphone, but Spice has come to make our wishes true.

Spice did a slient launch of its 2nd Android smartphone MI310 in Indian market. E-retailer Flipkart.com is selling this smartphone at just Rs 7305, while MRP is Rs 7500.

This entry level power-packed smartphone comes with Android 2.2 (Froyo), 3.15″¬†HVGA Capacitive Touch Screen with 320 x 480 resolution, 2MP camera, 1200 mAh battery, HSDPA (7.2Mbps), Bluetooth 2.1, aGPS, FM Radio, MicroUSB, and memory card (T Flash, Micro SD, Micro SDHC) support upto 16 GB, USB Tethering & Wi-Fi Hotspot Functionality.

Though hardware details (CPU & RAM) is not revealed, it is certain Spice modifies Android UI for best experience on this low end hardware.

Powered with Android 2.2 the phone can run thousands of applications from Android Market and apps can be installed on external storage. Spice has also pre-loaded made-for-India applications like ibibo, Nimbuzz, Naukri.com, OI Notepad, Spice Gang, and Wapedia.

The phone can be a best buy for those who are on tight budget and like to move to Android! Biggest plus point of the smartphone is Android 2.2 and Capacitative touch screen – which will give you best experience with Android!

    @kailash The screen resolution is better than that of Galaxy Pop & Fit, and its capacitive too. I think its economically priced.

    sad that no indian manufacturer like micromax, spice etc are pricing their android phones right. even the likes of huwaei, zte whose starting android phone pricing is $100 in china and other countries, are looting indian customers by pricing the same phones 50-60% more in india, without any justification.

    give the specs, features and quality… the price of rs.4500-5000 is right for this phone. anything above that is over priced.

    I checked the online manual for this phone and it lists SAR as 0.66 W/KG

    If we consider it as a remodelled Commtiva X51, it should feature a
    Qualcomm MSM7227, 600 MHz CPU and 512 MB ROM + 256 MB RAM. Only speculations though…

    Well, yesterday I tipped TT about this launch and nice to see the article come out.

    I think we should bombard Spice PR dept. asking for real CPU/RAM specs. Also, it is suspected the device is made by Commtiva, like MI-300 earlier.

    Would like to see some hands-on reviews; still good budget androphone!

    @rajiev
    Capacitive touch is way better than resistive and supports multi-touch too (if allowed by firmware).
