Over the past year, the cheap smartphone category has been growing by leaps and bounds. Stylish phones like Samsung Corby managed to grab the imagination of the young generation and have become runaway hits. However, Micromax is taking a slightly different route and is concentrating on functionality over style.
Micromax W900 is an impressive offering, which runs on Windows Mobile 6.1. Under the hood of W900 lies a competent K3 Hi3611 460MHz processor coupled with 128 MB RAM and 256 MB ROM. The handset is bundled with a 2 GB microSD card; however, cards up to 16 GB are supported. Besides the standard Windows Mobile features such as Microsoft Office, Active Sync and Pocket SMS, W900 also includes some handy goodies such as Maps powered by MapmyIndia.
Sure, Micromax may not be able to offer the smooth experience we have come to expect from big names like Nokia and Samsung. However, Win Mo has numerous benefits and there are very few Windows Mobile phones in the sub-10k price range. This alone makes Micromax W900 a handset to seriously consider.
