Lava International recently increased its Xolo A series and comes up with a new smartphone named A500L. It is a dual sim (both GSM sim) smartphone which supports 3G on primary sim.

Firefox ZTE Open
This is really wonder to see that Mozilla Corporation and its partners has not officially announced its smartphone in India but still itâ€™s the ZTE Open, the first Firefox OS based smartphone, is selling by an online shopping site. So this device may not take much time to enter in Indian smartphone market. With this device the company is trying to its reach to mainstream markets. In-built application Firefox Marketplace has included eBay, The Weather Channel, Wikipedia, Facebook, Twitter and many more.
- 3.5-inch screen with HVGA display
- Resolution – 480 x 320
- Processor – 1 GHz Cortex A5
- 256 MB RAM
- 512 mb internal Storage
- Camera â€“ 3.2 mp rear camera
- OS – Firefox OS 1.1
- Connectivity – 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS/A-GPS
- Battery – 1200mAH Battery
- Dimensions: 114 x 62 x 12.5mm
- Weight â€“ 120 grams
Price: The company set its price up-to 8000/- but this shows with the price of 6990/- on an online shopping site.
Verdict: Both smartphone have less than 5 mp camera and also internal storage capacity is less than other smartphones in the same price range. So with the lack of these features both these two can’t attract music & game lovers and pic-lovers much. But with ZTE Open at-least you can get a new OS experience apart from Android within this price-range.
