Samsung Galaxy Pop Now in India With CDMA FlavorFollowing MTS HTC Smartphone (HTC Hero CDMA aka Droid Eris) launched as MTS Pulse, Samsung India announced the launch of  Galaxy Pop CDMA (i599).

The smartphone will hit the market for Rs. 9750. This would be the 4th CDMA Android smartphone officially available in Indian market, after Galaxy i899 &  i500 and MTS Pulse and 1st CDMA smartphone which is powered by Android 2.2.

Online retailer Flipkart.com is selling this CDMA smartphone at Rs 9500 with free home delivery.

This mid range CDMA smartphone from Samsung certainly enriches its Android portfolio of Galaxy series.

There are no hardware differences between the Galaxy Pop CDMA and its GSM cousin. This smartphone is an Open Market Handset (OMH) device, so you can choose any CDMA operator (Reliance/Tata Indicom/MTS/BSNL/MTNL/Ping/Virgin).

Only the 4th device? This shows how poorly CDMA is treated in india. Thats it, im going to Vodafone or airtel, without changing my no, atleast I will have a wide choice of android phones, or iPhone or Win Mango too.
Useless CDMA.
