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 also have better after sales support for Android devices.
