Cellphones Anticipated to Hit Indian Market by 2011 End

The year 2011 has been great for mobile phone market, especially in India. At present, more than 865 million people (as of August 2011) in India use mobile phones, which makes it the second largest mobile phone using country in the world.

While new mobile phone companies are trying to place themselves in market, the older ones are creating niche by offering an improved range of cellphones. Mobile market in India has experienced tremendous growth in terms of technology in 2011. BlackBerry OS 7.0 phones have already marked their presence while Apple iPhone 4S on the iOS 5 platform has recently hit the market. There are a few more devices that are expected to be launched in the last quarter of the year. Let's talk about the much-awaited devices that will soon be grabbing the attention of Indian consumers:

Nokia 603
The news of launch of this sleek & stylish Symbian Belle device has been in the air for quite a long time now. Though, Nokia has preferred to be quiet about availability of the device, it is expected to hit the Indian market in month of December.

Nokia 603 has 3.5 inch TFT-LCD ClearBlack display that will improve screen's visibility under the sunlight. Though, the phone comes with 5MP camera and HD video recording feature, missing LED flash is a disappointment for buyers. The combination of 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM is going to provide decent browsing speed to the device. 3G, Wi-Fi, A-GPS are obvious features of this mid-range phone; but NFC will definitely be enticing for Indian consumers, especially after Nokia's team-up with PayMate. The device is expected to be priced below Rs.15,000.

Motorola Motokey Social
Motorola Motokey Social falls into the category of “yet another Facebook mobile phone”. The 3G device also offers Wi-Fi. It has 2.4 inch screen and QWERTY keypad with a dedicated Facebook key.  

There's as such no attraction in the phone other than the Facebook button. It has 3MP camera without Flash support. Running on proprietary OS, it has push email and instant messenger. In-built memory of the device is 50MB, which can be expanded up to 32GB. Price of the phone will be around Rs.5,000.

HTC Titan
Here come's the phone known for its exaggerated size. HTC Titan, the Mango phone, is receiving applaud for the massive 4.7 inch screen and killer sleek looks. It has 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and 512MB RAM. Specs of the phone are somehow similar to the Lumia 800 released by Nokia. It has has got 8MP camera with dual-LED flash (Lumia 800 has Carl Zeiss lens). It supports HD video recording and playback.

For those who are already impressed with the new OS Mango but are looking for a non-Nokia phone, Titan could be a good option. HTC has integrated HTC Hub and some of the exclusive HTC apps in the Windows device.

What might disappoint you is the non-expandable 16GB memory of the phone, no DivX/Xvid video support, absence of video call feature since Mango phones doesn't support it, and of course the resolution that doesn't complement the 4.7 inch screen size.

HTC Titan has solid build, one thing all HTC phones are known for. Manufacturer has yet not revealed the price of the phone in India.

Motorola Atrix 2
Motorola Atrix 2 comes with Android Gingerbread and 1GHz dual-core processor. Curve edges of the phone remind us of the design of Motorola Fire. Atrix 2 has 4.3 inch TFT-LCD display with 960x540 pixels resolution. Gorilla Glass display adds to the rigidity of the device.

The 8 megapixels camera of the phone with LED flash is capable of capturing full HD videos. Connectivity options in the 3G phone include GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, HSDPA, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Atrix 2 comes with Adobe Flash Player and you can also the device to TV directly through the HDMI output.

Atrix 2 comes packed with Li-Ion 1785 mAh battery that gives more than 8 hours of talktime and 15 days standby time on 2G. Motorola has not revealed the price of the phone.

Samsung Omnia W I8350
The first Windows 7.5 Mango phone from Samsung in India, Omnia W is one more addition to the range of good-looking phones. Despite of being made from plastic, the device looks stunning. It has rectangular build with sharp edges and a prominent Windows logo on the home button.

Omnia W is definitely going to give tough time to Nokia Lumia 710 as both the phones fall in the same price segment. The device has 3.7 inch Super AMOLED screen, an ideal size to fit into your pocket. Processor is 1.4 GHz (the same you find in other Windows devices) plus 512MB RAM.

Just like Radar, the phone also lacks in the expandable memory support. It has 8GB non-expandable memory, which will restrict you from storing all your favorite music files & important data. The 5MP camera with LED flash is good enough to click decent pictures.

The phone will be available at an approx price of Rs.19,990.

Anticipating good deals for all these new phones on
