    Default Lemon Mobiles Launches W100: Low-cost 3G Phone

    Priced at just Rs. 3,500, the Lemon W100 3G is a low-cost mobile phone targeted at the mass market in India. This handset from Lemon Mobiles is compatible with SIM cards from both, 2G (standard GSM) and 3G (WCDMA, not HSPA) mobile service providers. Specifications include a 2-inch screen, dual-cameras (1.3 MP at rear), video call and email support, Bluetooth, Java (has Opera Mini), 3.5 mm audio jack, 60 MB internal memory, and expandable memory card slot up to 16GB. The pre-loaded Lemon Live TV comes with a free subscription for one month

    The music player on the Lemon W100 3G phone supports MP3, AAC, MIDI, and AMR audio formats. With a 0.3 MP camera even at the front, there had to be a video recorder and player application. Supported video file formats include MP4, 3GP and 3G2. A voice recorder and FM radio functionality are also present. This phone sells at mobile phone shops at Rs. 3,500 as mentioned earlier, and is available in 2 colors - Vibrant Red and Stylish Blue.

    While on the topic, note that although this phone is billed by some as an entertainment package capable of accessing high speed internet, it depends on what you'd accept as being "high speed". It can access GPRS over 2G networks, not very different from most phones, but can only access WCDMA over 3G networks. Consider that WCDMA can sometimes be just one-tenth the speed of that which is accessible by the higher priced HSPA-compatible phones. So this indeed is 3G for the masses, but perhaps severely crippled.
