Launching of the phone...

Mr Vineet Taneja, Chief Executive Officer, Micromax said, "India today has only 70mn 3G subscribers, which is a mere 10 percent of the overall subscribers. With today's launch we are reinforcing our commitment to democratize technology, making 3G available at affordable price points and urging more users to join the mobile broadband journey." He further added, "With one of the widest distribution networks in the country spanning across more than 50,000 smartphone retail outlets, we are uniquely positioned to accelerate the 3G ecosystem further, thus contributing to country's vision of 600mn broadband users by 2020. As always we have taken time to understand the consumer need & delivered superb value to the first time 3G user. The new range of 3G smartphones is designed to deliver an unparalleled experience through a combination of faster speed, large screen, good battery life and optimal processing power.


Conclusion

The Micromax S300 is a decent low-range phone & it has got low-range specs as the phone itself is priced low! It is a decent phone for users who just want an Android Smartphone to use some basic apps like WhatsApp & browse internet on the phone. High specs like gorilla glass can't be expected as this is just a low-range entry-level android phone.
On the other hand, the Micromax D320 has got decent specs and we don't know how much is Micromax going to quote it! It is a decent phone for users who just want an Android Smartphone to do some basic things like WhatsApp, browse internet on the phone, multi-tasking and may be a little of gaming like Subway Surfers. Our expectation is that Micromax will quote this phone a price of around Rs.4000.

The main aim of Micromax launching these two phones is to make more people use 3G broadband services thereby selling the phones at a low price so that economically backward people can also start using smartphones with internet.

We would love to hear your thoughts/opinions about these two phones - The Micromax Bolt S300 & D320! See you in the discussion section.
