WoW ! Huwaei brings sub 6k Android Froyo Ideos Smartphone to India…

An Android Phone below Rs. 6000 ? Yes, it is possible and very much here. Huwaei has announced its newest Android based phone, which is expected to be in sub Rs. 6000 price range (We tried to find the exact pricing, but could not get…most of them report Rs. 5600..)

Huwaei Ideos Launch

What this means is – Android Operating system has now come within reach of Millions of consumers, who could not afford significant costs of a smartphone earlier. Over last few months, we are already seeing many handset manufacturers bringing low cost (about Rs. 10-12k range) Android phones in the market and now with Huwaei bringing it to around 5-6k range, the market dynamics are set to change in a big way.

Huwaei Ideos – Cheapest Android Smartphone

At sub Rs. 6k price, Huwaei Ideos does seem to have packed quite bit of punch into the phone, starting with Android 2.2 which is currently on very few devices like EVO 4G, Nexus One and Droid.


Now, another thing you must be thinking – This looks like any other crappy Chinese phone – NO, it is not. Huawei has built this phone in collaboration with Google and consumers will be able to carry out updates etc directly to Android.

Huwaei Ideos features:

  • OS:Android OS, v2.2 (Froyo)

  • Its been three months since they announced this phone in India.But when is it actually coming? Anyone has any idea? I find that this phone has been launched in Kenya, Pakistan but not in India.

  • dude, $100 – $200 doesnt mean its 6k for India. http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/03/huawei-ideos-hands-on/ The price would be around 8k+

    • Dear Taran, Please read carefully…it is from $100 to $200 (4.5k to 9k) depending on the markets…In India most probably it will be less than $150…most sites have give 5600 as the price…and that is also why I have put the caveat that this price is not confirmed…

  • No it is not resistive, it is capacitive, that is the major draw of this super cheap 2.2 phone. And yes there are going to be many more super cheap phones with capacitive screen from HTC, Sony Ericsson etc.
