Beetel is on a roll. This Bharti’s arm has just launched a affordable Beetel Magiq Android tablet and now it has announced an LTE phone powered by Android 2.3 operating system. The phone will be priced around Rs. 9000, will have a 1 GHz processor and 3.2 inch display.
Launching an LTE Mobile in India is a little premature but not completely outlandish. For all practical purposes, LTE is available in India and is undergoing field tests. Nokia and Siemens have tested LTE back in 2010. Most recently, Aircel and Huawei has successfully field tested LTE in India and have achieved a peak data transfer speed of 245 megabytes per second.
Beetel is getting a little ahead in the curve.
