Indian mobile phone manufacturer Spice has announced the launch of a new Android smartphone called Stellar Xtacy Mi-352. The Spice Xtacy is a budget smartphone aimed at beginners. It comes complete with Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor and Android Gingerbread operating system. Stellar Xtacy Mi-352 is based on the older Android Gingerbread operating system, but comes for an impressive Rs 4,634 for which it offers a decent 3.5 inch display.
The Spice Stellar Xtacy also offers some nice hardware, thus competing with the likes of Samsung Galaxy Ace, Sony Xperia Miro and Micromax's Ninja 3. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225AB chipset with a single core processor running at 1 GHz and an Adreno 200 graphics chip. The handset has 256 MB of RAM along with a rather small 512 MB of internal storage of which a minute 100 MB only is available for users, but it can be extended to 32 GB with the help of a micro SD card.
The 3.5 inch display comes with 480 x 320 pixel resolution with a capacitive touch input system supporting multi touch as well. The Spice Stellar Xtacy has a 3 megapixel camera capable of recording videos as well at 30 frames per second. Stellar Xtacy comes ready with dual SIM connectivity with 3G networks supported over the primary SIM. The device also gets Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS as standard. There is a 1300 mAh battery pack for powering the device, which promises a claimed 3.5 hours of 2G talktime.
