Taiwan based handset manufacturer HTC is set to launch its entry level smartphone, Explorer, in India. The phone, earlier called Pico, will be unveiled today in New Delhi.
HTC Explorer will be launched in India first and then in other countries. The phone, which will be HTC’s cheapest product so far, is priced at less than Rs 10,000.
The phone is expected to feature a 600 MHz processor, a 3.2 inch HVGA display, 384 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, 5 megapixel camera, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.5.
The phone is also going to be offered along with special tariff plans from Vodafone. We expect it to include some free 3G data access, and some preferential call rates for a limited period.
HTC’s global team is coming for the event and is expected to talk about the companies’ strategy for India. HTC has already said that India is one of the most important markets for the country and this global launch proves that.
