” The launch of the Connected Spice Life devices with the ‘& Series’ (Android) range is in line with our vision and strategic thought of providing customers new age high technology devices that have an interplay on the Mobile Internet Platform readily operable in the 3G and HSPA. Our devices will have pre-embedded content and applications developed by Spice Digital, our VAS business and Spice Labs, our Mobile Internet & Apps business, retailed exclusively through Spice HotSpot stores across India to begin with, so as to offer an integrated mobility experience.“We are also very pleased to have the opportunity to once again work with Qualcomm in moving to a new continuum of Mobile Internet, 3G and HSPA technologies and providing Mobility consumers enriched experience.”  saidMr. Dilip Modi, Managing Director, Spice Mobility Ltd.

Spice is working with Qualcomm maker of the Snapdragon CPUs to power these devices.

Mr. Kanwalinder Singh, president of Qualcomm India and South Asia and senior vice president of Qualcomm said, “We are pleased to collaborate with Spice for the launch of 3G HSPA smartphones and tablets that leverage our Android leadership and are powered by Qualcomm’s SnapdragonTM platform and our MSM7xxx series chipset. 3G devices like these will go a long way in realizing our vision of enabling mobile internet for all Indians. We are committed to 3G success of Indian brands like Spice and causing a fundamental shift in the internet and computing experience for Indian consumers.”

We are not sure if these devices will come with Android 2.1 at launch as the press release indicates they are 2.1 ready  which might indicate that the devices come with either 1.6 or 2.0 and will get upgraded to 2.1

But certainly its a brave move to by the company to offer a Android handset at a sub Rs.10000 level.  Only Samsung Galaxy 5 and 3 are availble close to that price point now.

      Apple neglected India for iPad launch. Now see Olive and Spice making use of the opportunity !

  • pradeep

    first the heading is wrong.
    its two tablets and 1 phone.

    second HVGA is 320*480 not 240*320.

    and last these are really cool stuffs for the price point.

    • http://www.fonearena.com Varun Krish

      Yep, you are right .. when we first looked at the pics , it seemed like 2 phones but they are tablets ..

      • Pradeep

        And if they release an froyo update it can actually take on phones like 5800xm and other mid level touch phones.

        • Mithun Katula

          it can still take on any phone in the segment…..the phone is too gud to be true at this price but the point is tht it is there…..and yup im also waiting fr the 2.2 update bcoz i wnt to install lots of applications(and hav already installed lots of them)….and i am actually running out of memory its jst 68 mb left in the phone now……

  • Raaz

    ya really nice phone….
    is any one using it? hows the hardware part and touch screen?
    does it have multi touch……..?
    please confirm..

    • Mithun Katula

      yup im using it…..its really nice the touch screen response is great its bttr thn any touchscreen i hav used so far even the slightest touches are recorded its bcoz of the capacitive touch screen i suppose…..there is no lag in the interface its quite smooth….the screen has multitouch and the zooming is quite fast(and fun too thnks to multitouch)…..the sheer amount of applications u cn get for this handset(more than a lakh) is enough a reason to buy dis……games are awsum on dis handset…..jst one drawback tht it still comes with 1.6 android and u will have to wait for a 2.1 update…but still its nothing less… its much much bettr thn any hanset in the same price range……
