Previously, Micromax entered the 12.5-cm (5-inch) phablet segment with its Superfone Canvas A100. The device featured a 12.5-cm (5-inch) screen with a resolution of 480 X 480 pixels, running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 1 GHz single core processor. This sub 10k phablet wooed the low-end Indian market, but several users complained about the single core processor, which somehow handicapped the device. Now, Micromax is looking forward to launch a dual-core version of the device named A110 Canvas 2. The Canvas 2 is already available for pre-orders at Snapdeal.com.
The revamped version of the Canvas comes with a 12.5 cm (5-inch) screen, 1 GHz dual processor and runs on Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Other salient features include an 8 MP camera with flash and auto focus, 0.3 front camera, expandable memory up to 32 GB, 2000 mAh powerful battery, V3.0 Bluetooth connectivity, 5 hours of talktime and 180 hours of standby time. Customers can now book A110 via Snapdeal for Rs 500. Moreover, this deal also has a contest whereby lucky customers can get free passes to the Enrique concert and get an opportunity to meet the star in person.
Pre-booking is open all across India; however, the contest is open to people from Pune, Delhi-NCR and Bangalore only. The last date of participation for the contest is 14 October 2012 for Pune, 16 October 2012 for Delhi-NCR and 18 October 2012 for Bangalore. The winners will be shortlisted two days before the concert and will be on the basis of a lucky draw.
