It took Spice Mobility almost a year to launch its mid-entry Spice Mi-410 Android smartphone. Announced back in August, the handset is now available for purchase for Rs. 13,999 (about $313).
For those who don't remember, the Spice Mi-410 is a rebranded version of the Huawei Ideos X6, which is expected to be available as Olive Smart, as well.
Although the handset manufacturer touted the Mi-410 as a “mini-tablet with a 4.1-inch screen,” this is in fact an Android smartphone with a larger than usual screen.
The phone is equipped with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and runs Google's Android 2.2 Froyo platform.
As mentioned above, the smartphone comes with a 4.1-inch HVGA capacitive display and sports a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and high-definition video record capabilities.
Furthermore, the Mi-410 features Wi-Fi connectivity and offers users full HSDPA support for transferring data at blazing speeds of 21Mbps, as well as Bluetooth 3.0 with EDR capabilities.
”Our devices will have pre-embedded content and applications developed by Spice Digital, our VAS business and Spice Labs, our Mobile Internet & Apps business, retailed exclusively through Spice HotSpot stores across India to begin with, so as to offer an integrated mobility experience,” said Mr. Dilip Modi, managing director, Spice Mobility Ltd.
Other highlights of the phone include: integrated GPS with A-GPS support, Google and MS office apps, HDMI output, Wi-Fi Tethering, 2GB of internal memory, 512MB RAM, as well as microSD card slot for memory expansion.
“We are also very pleased to have the opportunity to once again work with Qualcomm in moving to a new continuum of Mobile Internet, 3G and HSPA technologies and providing Mobility consumers enriched experience,” Modi concluded.
Even though the phone still shows on Spice Mobility's official website as 'Coming Soon', it appears that the company is selling the smartphone on its recent e-commerce venture Saholic.
