Micromax Canvas Beat: Launched exclusively on Aircel

62

mmx beatMicromax has partnered with Aircel to launch their all new Canvas Beat in India, which is a smartphone dedicated to music and priced at Rs. 9999. The phone will be available in the country via Aircel and it will have a dedicated Aircel Music app and it comes with 1000 preloaded songs. And here's the best part about buying such a smartphone of course you get some benefits when you buy a phone from a particular carrier. Aircel is offering full talk time of Rs. 118 (on a recharge of Rs. 118); all local and STD calling at 1 paisa/second for the first 6 months; 1GB of free data (depending on the location - 2G/3G) per month for 6 months, and other ISD calling benefits. Though I didn't find the offer to be very impressive, but you can manage your instant messaging on the go and a little social networking and surfing without paying any extra bucks or recharge. 

The Canvas Beat (A114R) runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and it features a 5-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) IPS display, and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Broadcom BCM23550 processor along with 1GB of RAM. The Micromax Canvas Beat sports an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, and also includes a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone has 4GB of inbuilt storage and expandable storage support upto 32 GB (via microSD card). It also packs a 1900mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 5 hours of talk time and 150 hours of standby time and offers dual SIM dual standby (GSM+GSM). We all know that it's a market strategy, but at this price tag, we don't think that it is going to be a hit, and carrier restrictions may also upset users and cut some fans off.
