Idea Cellular until now has launched low end smartphones with basic features but understanding the need of customers for better smartphones, Idea has come up with Ivory smartphone in India. Interestingly this will be the first smartphone by the company to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS pre-installed on the device.
