Google’s USD 50 Smart Phone could blow the lid off the canned mobile data market especially for broadband thirsty India. And yes, it is true – potentially the most bandwidth starved and fastest growing mobile market could be in the eye of a data tsunami. http://fortune.com/2015/08/10/google-android-one-india/ Catch Fortune’s Tom Huddleston, Jr say it all.

It looks like Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is all set to launch the Redmi 2, its next-generation, entry-level smartphone in the Indian market.
The company is currently running a contest on its India Facebook page which features a word puzzle. Participants who are able to find three key features from the puzzle qualify to get priority access passes to buy the company’s upcoming smartphone. The puzzle includes words such as ‘Snapdragon,’ ‘QuickCharge’ and ‘expandable’ which suggest that Xiaomi is about to launch Redmi 2, since its Mi Note phones come with non-expandable memory. Also, it makes sense for the company to start selling an entry level phone again after recently discontinuing Redmi 1S. The contest ends March 11, so we can expect the launch to take place in the next few weeks.
The successor to the Redmi 1S, the smartphone went on sale on January 15 in China and costs 699 yuan (approximately Rs 6,800). Original post at ET Telecom
