Celkon A200 another low cost dual core handset is listed on flipkart with a coming soon status. The price details are not known but will be close to the Videocon V30, as the specifications are near about same.
The Celkon A200 does come with good features and have an edge over the Videocon A30 model, if it is priced below (not likely) the Videocon A30 model then it could really do well. Having said that Videocon does have the brand advantage.
A200 is a dual SIM handset with dual core processor clocked at 1GHz. It comes with a 4.3 inch screen with 800×480 pixels resolution. Android ICS runs the show over 512MB RAM and 4GB internal storage. For additional storage space one can use the micro SD slot.
This Celkon handset weighs 147 grams with 10.8mm thickness. It supports 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3, GPS, FM radio, micro USB port and 3.5mm audio port. There is a 5MP camera with video recording support and a secondary camera on the front. A 1500mAh battery (Li-ion) gives a standby time of around 200 hours and a talktime of up to 4 hours.
