Videocon Brings 2nd Android Phone V7400 in IndiaVideocon Mobiles, the Mobile Phones Division of Videocon Industries launched their second Android 2.1 powered smartphone V7400 in India.

Videocon launched their 1st Android phone Zeus V7500 in September last year, within six months Videocon brings its 2nd android product.Company is also offering 30 mins free local calls to any network daily for 1 year + Unlimited calls to Videocon local numbers free for 1 year bundled with the smartphone.

This offer is valid in only selected cities where Videocon GSM Mobile Services is present.Though some online sites claim V7400 is actually re-branded Huawei U8100, which was shown of in 2010 Mobile World Congress, V7400 does not have front camera for video call.

Specifications of Videocon V7400 Android 2.1 Mobile:

Dimension 107.5 mm x 57 mm x 13.8 mm

7.1cm (2.8), 320*240 pixel, 262K color TFT single touch resistive screen

MRP – Rs 12,995

Package includes  handset, charger, data cable, handsfree kit, battery, Wireless Tether Guide, Top 50 google applications guide, User Manual, Warranty Card, Service Centre Directory.

Verdict: At this price tag Videocon V7400 is considered as NOT a good buy as it includes older Android 2.1 and resistive touch screen. Micromax Andro A60 with almost similar specs is available at Rs 6500. There is no news of upgrade to Android 2.2.

It is expected that no Android 2.2 smartphone will have resistive touchscreen. Samsung has best low-cost Android portfolio including Galaxy 5 and Galaxy Pop which has Android 2.2 and capacitative touch screen. Both are priced below Rs 9,000. Samsung also have better after sales support for Android devices.

    “Bye bye 1p/s” offer of Videocon is infact:—
    Call @ 0p/s offer. Company is giving add about the bundled free minutes & onnet free calls with its mobiles.

    @rohan Its a network Independent handset. USB teethring speed is pretty good, gives upto 7.1 Mbps with 3G. The best part is that it acts as a wi-fi router as well.

    After all, 30 minute local offnet & onnet free, offer is very good. Rs 10k would be best price for this offer.

    They have any sense?
    Who would buy this phone on that hefty price. Try to learn marketing from Micromax.
    I would buy if it is priced around Rs. 6500.

    What’s Happened to This Idiotic Videocon. Even They are running in testing mode in Karnataka. I’m really Disappointed By Them. Even Uninor is Very Serious in Their Operations. I Don’t Know whether they will Launch Their Services in Karnataka or Not?

    Its a Ad from videocon mobile services to use their services as they offer calls @ 25p/m whic is lesser than 1p/s tariff.

    For a rebranded phone i would have been happy if the price was less than 10k…
    Pros:
    1. wireless tethering
    2. GPS and Wifi
    3. Good talktime offer
    Cons:
    1. Android 2.1 (Bit outdated now)
    2. Resistive touch screen
    3. Low camera resolution for its price
    Huawei U8100 retails for around 11k and i dont understand this premium pricing for the same phone.
