No, 1 GB ram figure is confirmed along with HD display. I saw the hands on review of A116 on igyaan's website.

They did confirmed that, it's 1 GB

This seems to be excellent stuff. Once the battery life is confirmed too, this may go to the wish list soon If competent specs are provided by Indian manufacturers, then why go for costlier foreign alternatives.

Of course yes, for the below mentioned reasons

1) I had a feel of A110 built and it surprisingly felt premium for the price payed. I hope the same or better in their upcoming smartphone products.
2) Being Indian - Yes, I always buy Indian products if there are products which ticks all my needs. Support our entrepreneurs !!!
3) Warranty & Support

I guess MMX and Karbonn phones are NOT assembled in India. They are just marketed and supported (After sales) by these companies. I had read an article on the Chinese gadget industry sometime back. Man you can get 7 inch tablet as cheap as $40. If you place a bulk order, u get it for $30 with your company logos printed. Talk about cheap labor. I just hope they are well built and safe. Of course, everything these days is Chinese make.

MMX is doing well in this budget conscious market. They are actually firing on all guns. The 110 is well received and I am sure the Canvas HD will set another record for 15K with so much of specs.

There is no "Canvas 3" as such.

A116 Canvas HD == Canvas 3

Is it, then why does not Micromax call it as "Canvas 3"?

Here's update of the day
"Micromax Canvas II has been a hot selling smartphone for us and we plan to launch a Canvas smartphone every two months from now on-wards. We are currently selling around 5,500 Micromax Canvas 2 handsets daily and have started testing Micromax Canvas 3. I will not be in a position to share the exact time frame by when Canvas 3 will be launched. But do expect something around March."

These products are not Indian. Only the sales and service are Indian. Even the Indian company logo will be slapped on the phone in China.

So, it all comes to the QC standards demanded by the front company. While Apple demands the highest quality control from their Chinese suppliers, Micromax may not damand the same QC, for it is expensive.

Wife needs a new phone and requirements are:

- 3g
- dual camera for videocon
- Dual sim is a plus but not mandatory
- android 4.0+
- form factor 4 to 4.5in Max

I am thinking of karbonn a21 but need to see some reviews. Micromax a90s seems overpriced by around 1000 rs.
I finally purchased the Samsung S Duos to meet wife's requirement. Thanks to +ve experience with MMX A110 I was comfortable with the concept of Dual SIM Android phones which motivated to go for something higher than Karbonn/MMX.

Will post detailed review later.

PS: Nowadays MMX A110 is going at a street price of ~12500 while I purchased it at 9,700 during Diwali. Retailers are unable to maintain any stock!

Yes, I know that I just meant to say if I got to select between a Sony and a micromax with similar specs and built, I might go for the Micromax one if its half the price. Regarding the factories, I think all our fave manufacturers assemble devices in China and export to other countries. As you said, its the QC that matters. Price is definitely a point since both the HW and SW in Android world is growing fast which means a device may get outdated within months or weeks of purchase.

You are welcome to wait for the Canvas 3 to come to market. No further posts on this topic from me.

I am already enjoying Canvas 2 so I don't have to wait . It was just news I posted for fellow members.
But I failed to understand the reasoning behind your posts. Did I offend you in any way?

2) Sony Xperia SL

Any views ?
I'm on Note1 (more than six months now). Pretty much the same performance till date. 'Pretty much' is to mark the reduced battery time. At today's price its offers a great VFM. It is a true blue smart thing till date IMO.
