Originally spotted in September, Celkon's first Windows Phone, the Win 400, went on sale in November. Priced at just Rs.4,999 INR (roughly $80 USD), the device immediately became India's most affordable Windows Phone - but it soon lost that title when domestic rival iBall introduced its Andi 4L Pulse handset, priced at just Rs.4,899 (just over $78).
But now, the Celkon Win 400 is India's lowest-priced Windows Phone once again, thanks to Snapdeal.com, which has slashed the price of the handset to just Rs.3,999 ($64). Key specs of the device include:
- 4-inch LCD with WVGA (800x480px) resolution
- Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor
- 512MB RAM
- 4GB onboard storage (plus microSD support up to 32GB)
- 5MP rear camera with LED flash
- 1.3MP front-facing camera
- FM radio
- Dual-SIM support
- 1500mAh battery
- 125.4 x 65 x 10.3mm; 120g
...and for those that care about such things, the Win 400 also has hardware Back, Start and Search buttons on the front, rather than the on-screen 'soft buttons' that some manufacturers have adopted.
The handset is unlikely to win any awards for style or kick-ass performance - but that's still a pretty solid set of specs for such an affordable device.
