A few years before, when Android phones were introduced in India, you were supposed to lose heavy cash from your pocket. Every Android phone’s prices were above Rs. 10,000 and very limited options were available at that time.
Now in 2012, if you go to the market you get many varieties of Android phones under different smartphone manufacturers. With little expense of more than Rs. 3000, you get an Android phone. Spice Mi-270 is one such phone that you get at a very cheap price of Rs. 3399.
Today, if you are looking to purchase a mobile phone then I would suggest you think a little ahead and go for the Android phone ( I mean here, go for a smartphone). After all, the world is getting smarter and it’s time for you to get smart.
