When you say Android or Apple iPhone people by default think it’s about high priced only for rich smartphones. They aren’t wrong initially, especially in Pakistan where people would want a nice phone with maximum features but affordable enough for everyone. I mean iPhone 4 can cost you a good $1,000 and the cheapest Android Handset from HTC would be $350 plus. These phones, being really worth the price aren’t one meant for everyone’s pocket. However Zong Telecom, keeping the whole price factor and user demand in sight has introduced an all new handset running on the Android version 2.2 aka Froyo.
The phone manufacturer is Huawei that has introduced many CDMA mobile handsets across the country. This Android based phone is called the Zong IDEOS and offers the features that you would find on any other Android based devices. What’s more important is that this Android based smartphone might be the cheapest one out there priced at less than $200 [PKR 15,999].
IDEOS boasts a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor, a 3.2 Megapixel camera and support for a MicroSD card. And honestly speaking the device looks impressive enough, especially for the price it is being provided. I guess this will definitely live up to its name and motto and provide everyone the opportunity to buy a smartphone.
I am waiting to get my hands on it. The features are as follows:
- OS – Android OS, V2.2
- CPU – 528 MHz Qualcomm Processor
- 3.2 MP Camera
- Bluetooth • GPRS/ EDGE
- Proximity Sensor
- Ambient Light Sensor
- POP3 and Exchange Server Email Support
- microSD Card Support (microSD card not included)
