After the success of Micromax Superfone A85 and the dual SIM Superfone Lite A75, Micromax is gearing up to launch another version the Superfone A78 a touch and type dual SIM android powered smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard.

The A78 Superfone specification is on the lighter side which I presume will help make it more affordable. The touch and type handset comes powered by a moderate 650 MHz processor running Gingerbread OS (Android 2.3).

The touchscreen capacitive display is 3.5 inches and there is a QWERTY keyboard immediately following the display screen. The input combination helps type faster, perfect for those who have made Facebook or other social networks a part of their life.
