Indian firm Micromax offers affordable phablet for $180 U.S. dollar equivalent off contract
If you're looking for an affordable phablet, Indian smartphone manufacturer Micromax has built a device with a 5 inch screen for 9,999 Rupees, or approximately $180 USD, off-contract. Of course, getting such a bargain means that Micromax had to cut some corners. The Micromax Superfone Canvas A100 offers a 5 inch screen although the resolution of 480 x 854 is not going to result in the best pixel density. Under the hood is a dual-core 1GHz Mediatek 6577 processor while the phablet has 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage. Besides the dual-SIM card support, the Micromax Superfone Canvas A100 is equipped with a 2,000mAh battery, back and front facing cameras of 5MP and .3MP respectively, and has Android 4.0 installed out of the box.

If a 5 inch screen is too big for you, Micromax is offering the Micromax Superfone Pixel A90. This smartphone comes equipped with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED touchscreenwith WVGA resolution. On the device you will find the same dual-core 1GHz Mediatek 6577 processor as found on the phablet along with the same 512MB Of RAM, microSD slot and dual-SIM support. The A90 has a 1600mAh battery, an 8MP camera on back with flash, and a .3MP front facing shooter for self-portraits and video chat. The Siri-esque A.I.S.H.A comes pre-installed. The initials stand for Artificial Intelligence Speech Handset Assistant.The price for all of this? 12,990 Rupees or about $235 USD off-contract.

It seems a little strange for the smartphone to be priced higher than the phablet, but both devices still offer reasonably priced alternatives to the models manufactured by the big names.
