Ray M45 – Dual Sim Support and Much More for 3500 Rs

Ray has launched it’s new phone – M45 in India and it’s really cheap – Rs. 3500. For those of you who don’t know, Ray is a Chinese brand which started its distribution in India some time back.

The key feature of M45 is that it has slots for two SIM card. Of course, you cannot simultaneously operate on both. However, since they are both active, you will not have to keep switching between them. It has dedicated call buttons for both the SIM cards which helps you to just dial a number and press either of the buttons to make a call from the respective SIM card.

Ray M45 is not at all eye-catching by its looks. It has a very minimalistic and simple design.

Specifications :

  • 176 x 220 pixel display (262K)
  • 2 MP Camera
  • Expandable Memory – upto 4 GB
  • FM Radio
  • Bluetooth
  • Music Player
  • Large capacity Lithium – Ion battery (1800 mAh). 10 Hrs Talktime and 500 Hrs Standby
  • Dimension – 110 X 58 X 12.2 mm

There are hardly any devices in the market which offer a dual SIM phone at a price around Rs. 3,500. Ray M45 on the other hand, gives you many extra features to go with it. Though the handset lacks style, the phone is definitely ideal for you if you have a  low-budget.

Techie-Buzz Verdict

Not everything of this phone is a show-stopper. If you compare it to Nokia’s high-end smartphones or SE’s superb camera phones then you’re sure to be disappointed. But, if you want to have nearly all the amenities of a smart phone at a low budget price, try Ray M45. It will not disappoint you.

HTC HD2 For $450 No Contract, $200 With Contract On T-Mobile

HTC HD2 has a 1Ghz Processor, 4.3-inch TFT capacitive touch display, 512 MB ROM, 448 MB RAM, EDGE, 3G, Windows Media Player, Digital compass, Pocket Office, HTC Peep, HTC Footprints, Facebook and Twitter integration, A-GPS and an excellent 5 mega-pixel camera with autofocus and dual LED flash.

HTC HD2 Phone

A XDA forum member spotted the price of the HD2 in fine print on the T-mobile site. The fine print states:

†On approved credit. $112.50 down payment, plus 3 monthly payments of $112.50, required. 0% APR. Taxes & fees additional. Available only at T-Mobile-owned retail stores; see store for details.

††On approved credit. $22.50 down payment, plus 19 monthly payments of $22.50, required. 0% APR. Taxes & fees additional. Available only at T-Mobile-owned retail stores; see store for details.

Totaling both of these puts the price of HTC HD2 at $450 without a contract. The HTC HD2 will be subsidized at $200 when you buy it with a 2 year T-mobile contract. An unlocked HTC HD2 sells for more than $700 on Amazon, so getting at $450 is definitely a bargain.

So would buy the HTC HD2 when it starts selling in the states? What would you prefer a contracted phone or a non-contracted phone?
