Micromax launches its push mail service, and a phone!
After making a mark for itself in the value for money phone segment, Micromax has now introduced its push mail service in India. The Indian handset vendor has christened its push-email service ‘ezmail’ and allows instant access to emails. The company has also launched, rather appropriately, a phone that makes the most of this service, the Micromax Q80. This dual-SIM handset has a 2.4-inch QVGA display, an optical trackpad and a QWERTY keyboard. The phone is 3G ready, offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a built-in Yamaha amplifier, and comes with an in-built memory of 68 MB which is expandable up to 8GB with a microSD card. It features a rear 3.0 megapixel camera and a front-facing 0.3 megapixel camera for video calling and comes pre-loaded with a variety of apps like the Opera Mini browser, Bloomberg UTV, ngpay, Snaptu, Nimbuzz, Facebook and Newshunt. And in best Micromax tradition, the Q80 does not cost the earth – you can get it for Rs 4,999.
