Indian smartphone vendor and recent competitor to Karbonn & Micromax, Celkon is up with strategy to launch as many as 50 smartphones this year. Today they have launched CT-888 3G voice calling tablet and they have also come up with A58 the cheapest dual SIM 4 inches phone in India.
Celkon A58 is equipped with 4 inches capacitive touchscreen display with 5 point multi touch support providing mediocre 800 x 480 pixels resolution. Although this is an entry level smartphone it’s powered with 1 Ghz single core process with 512 MB RAM. It’s up against Micromax A89 Ninja smartphone which also sports 4 inches display and also with Karbonn A2+ phone.
It will be a dual SIM phone although none of them is with 3G which means you are limited to just 2G internet access. Sadly its with outdated Android 2.3 Gingerbread version and Celkon has the history of not delivering Android update to their Android phones and tablets. It includes 512 MB internal memory, too low for Android phones although micro SD card is up for addition and its compulsory to make use of all features on this featured rich Android phone.
Its includes 3 mega pixel camera on the rear side with decent quality of photos and digital zooming capabilities. Powered with 1500 mAh battery, it will provide not more than 4 hours of continuous talk time or 180 hours of standby time. This means you need to charge your phone overnight if you have a daily usage of 10-20 calls, few SMS, internet access and limited time game playback. We still have no clue on how smooth will be the touch or game playback on this phone.
