Lava mobiles have launched the Lava N350 also called Lava IRIS N350 a budget android phone for Rs. 4,499. The handset comes with a 3.5 inch screen with dual SIM support running on Android 2.3 OS.
Android 2.3 or Gingerbread is now quite outdated but the ultra low cost handset are still using this OS. The Lava N350 is a 1GHz powered dual SIM android phone with 256MB RAM and 160MB free space for apps.
There is no 3G support and you need to rely on GPRS and EDGE networks. The display is 3.5 inches capacitive LCD screen with 480×320 pixels resolution and multi touch support. I doubt if it has built-in GPS or just supports navigation via networks just like on Micromax A25 and the Karbonn A1+.

The handset comes with four dedicated buttons and has got a nice overall look. The price I think is a bit high but the handset should do well as compared with Micromax Ninja 3 / Ninja 4, as plenty of internal storage space for apps and probably more free memory.
Missing 3G support is a disappointment. The front camera can come handy for Skype video calls using the Wi-Fi network. The handset is listed on Flipkart with an out of stock status.
