We said fluctuations in hardware specifications because the device has 8 mega pixel camera the best in the market providing 720p HD video recording and better image capturing capabilities.

It comes with Windows Phone 7.8 OS and we are sure that will not be updated to Windows Phone 8 due to its hardware limitations. The 1300 mAh battery provides – 36 hours of music playback time, 7.2 hours of 3G talk time and 600 hours of standby time.
