After Celkon and Lava, now its iBall’s turn to introduce a low cost Windows 8.1 smartphone in India. According to retailer MaheshTelecom, iBall Andi 4L PULSE running Windows Phone 8.1 is already available on the shelves for 4,899 INR.
The hardware is similar to Lava Iris Win1. Andi 4L Pulse features a 4 Inch WVGA (800 x 480) display powered by 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 200 processor with 1 GB RAM and 4 GB internal storage. The storage is further expandable using MicroSD card slot.
This dual SIM (2G + 3G) smartphone has a basic 5 MP AF rear camera with BSI sensor and is powered by a modest 1500 mAh battery. Other features include 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS.
Software is Windows Phone 8.1 and MS Office also comes preloaded on the device. Hardware seems good enough to support smooth performance on Windows Phone OS.
iBall Andi 4L PULSE will be directly rivaled by Celkon Win 400 and Lava Iris Win1 in India, both of which are also based on Qualcomm Reference Design. This new Windows based smartphone should be a valueable addition to iBall’s budget smartphone portfolio. iBall is expected to officially introduce this smartphone very soon.
