Micromax is the latest handset manufacturer to join the Android handset bandwagon with the launch of A 60.
The device, A 60, runs on Android 2.1 (Eclair) and is powered by a 600Mhz processor. Although an update to the Android 2.1 is now available, the company can be excused for not using the same, given the price of the device. On the other hand, we think the device should perform well with the 600Mhz processor.
With a price tag Rs 6,999, the Micromax A 60 is one of the most affordable Android handsets available in the market.
The phone sports a 7.1 cm touch display with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels and 65K color display. The touchscreen is a resistive one hence it senses input from contact with nearly any object (finger, stylus/pen etc.). We would have welcomed a higher resolution display.
As far as multimedia features are concerned, A 60 comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera and the music player supports almost all popular file formats namely AMR-WB, WAV, MP3.
Other features include Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, Proximity Sensor, accelerometer and expandable memory up to 32 GB.
Proximity sensor is a welcome feature and a must of every touchscreen device. It is able to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact and switches off the display of the phone as soon as you get it near your ear during a call. Hence, saving you from pressing any in-call option unintentionally.
On the other hand, an accelerometer measures motion of the phone and changes the screen orientation from portrait to landscape according.
The company plans to launch another handset running on the Android platform by January.
