Last month, Celkon launched the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-running A27. The phone is set to cost Rs 8,999 and the company revealed some of the handset's features, at the time of the launch. The A27 has dual-SIM support. It is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and has 512MB of RAM. It is equipped with an 1800 mAh battery.


Here are some other key features of the A27:

  • 4.63-inch touchscreen
  • 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth
  • 4GB internal memory


tech2 also recently reviewed Celkon's earlier offering — the A200. Going by the review, the A200 is a smart-looking piece of mobile hardware. It's very neatly designed and the smooth, curved edges and glossy finish, albeit prone to scratches, gives the handset a refined look. Celkon has opted for a simple 3-button (soft touch) system for the OS. A volume rocker with well-articulated buttons are placed on the upper right hand side of the device, with the 3.5 mm handsfree and micro USB ports placed on the top on either side of the power/sleep mode key. A hot-swap microSD card slot is placed under the rear panel. The A200 is a dual-SIM (GSM + GSM) handset with slots placed neatly under the panel. Access to these will require you to remove the 1500mAh battery. There’s also a 5 megapixel camera on the back accompanied by a set of dual LEDs.


The 1.2GHz dual-core processor running under the hood pretty much ensures speedy performance. Overall, the UI is fluid. Although the 512MB of RAM is sufficient, 1GB would have made quite a difference. A User Profiles setting is also provided, so you have a certain measure of quick control for switching between profiles. Check out what we thought about the Celkon A200 in our review.
