In addition to the near 24 percent price slash, Flipkart is also tempting buyers to opt for the phone by giving away free pre-selected eBooks worth Rs 2,199 with the device. The site is also offering EMI offers for the phone starting at Rs 873 per month. The price slash will be welcomed by many, since the launch price was deemed to be a tad high, and a sub-Rs 20,000 price tag feels about right.
