Why is it so surprising for you to think that India can manufacture phones?? Or is Greece filled with phone manufacturing facilities around every other corner? Nokia has one of the largest mobile phone manufacturing units of south east Asia based in India. I'm not sure if micromax manufactures their phones in India or gets it done some where else (read china) but if apple getting their phones built in china are aab American phone manufacturer, then micromax had the right to be called indian manufacturer.. And do find out more about a country before you start posting comments about one even if you feel butthurt for your favourite brand

Samsung had this coming with their really bad low end phones and terrible designs. Heck, even Micromax designs better phones than Samsung (Eg: Canvas 4, Canvas Knight ans Canvas Turbo).
