We aren’t sure why MAXX prices are as odd as Rs 3272 (numerology?), but that’s a 2.8-inch touch screen phone hitting the market. And it doesn’t run Android! As we had pointed before, MAXX is strategically targeting a gap between low cost phones and entry-level smartphones with the Scope MT150. At Rs 3272, the Scope is priced a little over some feature phones we have seen and at the same time much cheaper than any Android touchscreen (even with a resistive display) out there.
The MT150 is powered by a 1000 mAh battery, features 1.3 MP camera and is preloaded with licensed music and video on a 2GB Micro SD card. The OS is Java enabled bringing a host of apps like Opera, Yahoo Mail / IM etc and supports MP4 & 3GPP video formats. The phone also sports FM radio and bundles sync software MySynch.
The design, price point and feature set look promising to us, we would keenly observe how these pseudo-smartphones perform in the market.
