DataWind launched a new handset the DataWind PocketSufer GZ that will be available for Rs. 1,499. Users will also get 1 year free internet access along with the handset. DataWind has partnered with Reliance Communication for the Net services.

The company has not yet revealed the handset specifications, and we do not know if the handset supports 3G or 2G. Most likely for this price tag of Rs. 1,499 it could be a 2G smartphone. The lowest priced smartphone from Datawind is the 2G4X a 2G handset running Jelly bean over a 3.5 inch screen with 480 x 320 pixels resolution. The 2G4X is a single core smartphone.

Taking clue from that the PocketSurfer GZ could be along the same lines and free 1 year net access on such a hardware makes no sense.
