Price cuts are in and it looks like the mid-range segment of smartphones is going to balloon with some really neat handsets. Only recently we saw the Nexus S’ price going down to Rs. 20,000 and we also have the Ideos X5 and Spice Mi-410 falling in the 15K price bracket. The latest to join the mid-range smartphone scene is the Motorola Defy.
Set to Defyne the mid-range segment...
The smartphone has been listed on Letsbuy.com for Rs. 15,000, and will be delivered at your doorstep within 4 working days. Maybe if you search around (online or in retail shops), it’s quite likely that you might find the handset being priced a little lower as well. At this price, the Defy certainly seems to be a good option. The smartphone’s USP of being rugged and water resistant is quite suitable for our weather conditions as well. Also, with the Defy getting a FroYo update, the deal gets a lot sweeter.
Since the Defy has seen such a price drop, we definitely hope to see more handsets in the Rs. 20K range coming down by a few thousands. Should it be the Samsung Galaxy SL I9003? Time will tell.
