We are slowly but surely entering a new era for the low-end devices. This sector has been monopolized for a long time by Nokia and Samsung, with their affordable and reasonably performant handsets. Well, things aren't going to stay this way for a long, since companies such as Micromax emerged as serious competitors due to their cheaper and better policy. In India, everyone heard about Micromax, it's one of the most important local brands of mobile phones and offers very affordable priced handsets.

Their newest addition is the Q89, obviously a dual-SIM device (very common in India), and has a rather interesting specs sheet. It's 3G enabled and even better, it has its own push email service and a special key shortcut for email. It's shaped somewhat like a candybar and has a full QWERTY keyboard, always a nice aspect. Screen wise, it has offers a 2.4-inch QVGA (320 x 240) display which is also pretty decent. Other features include a 3MP camera, music/video player, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, microSD card and many others.

Measuring in at 13mm thick and 113 grams, the Micromax Q80 has already hit the shelves across India, at a price tag of Rs. 4,999 meaning approximately $112. Considering the features this handset has to offer and its fairly reasonable price, we expect some significant sales for Micromax.
