Zen announces their first Android handset
Zen, an Indian cellphone manufacturer recently announced their first Android handset. The name of the phone is Zen Ultraphone Z1. This handset supports dual SIM technology and it runs on Android 2.3 OS. The phone is powered by a 1 GHz chip inside. There are features inside like 3.5 inches HVGA capacitive touch screen having a resolution of 480×320 pixels. There is 3.2 megapixels camera having flash support. Other features of the phone include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, EDGE and GPRS. Unfortunately, this phone doesn’t have 3G support. You can buy this phone initially only on HomeShop.com and it carries a price tag of Rs. 4,999.
Managing director at Zen Mobile, Deepesh Gupta said that Zen Ultra U1 phone is one of the best innovations that his company has come out with to date and it also reaffirms their commitment to give the best technology to their consumers at affordable prices. Android mobile OS is constantly evolving and they are proud with their work of pioneering technologies for mobile users in the Indian market.
Zen Mobile isn’t a well-known brand in India and this handset does not have any out of the box feature. Hence, it won’t be surprising if this phone does not create a lot of interest. The biggest disappointments are that this phone doesn’t have GPS or 3G which are present on competitors’ products like Micromax. Zen Ultra U1 phone is priced a bit low as compared to Micromax products but phone freaks would be happy to pay a little more for getting more features. Zen Ultraphone U1 is backed by a 1,200 mAh battery. We will cover a full review of this phone when we get it in our labs.
