What’s this a Micromax A101 on Homeshop18 with a price tag of Rs. 9,999 and well as expected with out of stock status. There is no word about A101 on the web, and hence no confirmation yet, but HomeShop18 seems a genuine site and hence this cannot be ignored.

The A101 seems similar to the Micromax A100 model except with a bigger screen of 5.2 inches as mentioned on the Homeshop site. If you go through the specifications most of it does not make sense.  Even contradicts to what is being mentioned above.  For example Frequency Band: GSM900/DCS1800 WCDMA 2100 and below it’s mentioned 3G connectivity – yes, HSDPA – no, WCDMA – no.

Interestingly the A101 sports a 5.2 inches screen a little bigger that what we have seen on the A100 model. The design also changed a bit with 4 dedicated buttons.  But hold on the same page it says 5.2 inch (12.7 cm) – 12.7 cm to inches is 5 inch.

Will there be a MMX A101, yes or no, we do not know yet. The specs on Homeshop18 (click here) also seems incomplete, senseless.  So what do you think is it a fake product or with a lot of typo errors. I don’t think MMX will launch another A100 model like A101 just to fill in some blanks, that too for Rs. 9,999.
