As promised, more and more Indian manufacturers are starting to branch out into the Windows Phone segment, with Karbonn Mobiles the most recent vendor to do so with the launch of the Titanium Wind W4. The device is available for sale exclusively on Amazon India for Rs. 5,999 ($99), bringing it on par with the Lumia 530 as the most affordable Windows Phone handset available in the country.
Spec-wise, you're looking at a 4-inch WVGA (800 x 480) display, 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU (possibly the Snapdragon 200), 512 MB RAM, 4 GB internal memory, microSD slot, 5 MP camera with LED flash, front-facing shooter, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and 3G connectivity along with dual-SIM functionality. No word on the battery or the quality of the frontal camera, but you would be glad to know that the device runs Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box.
The Titanium Wind W4 comes in white, black and red color variations, although currently you can only buy the white version. If you're looking for alternatives in the budget segment from local vendors, there's the Micromax Canvas Win W121 and the Xolo Win Q900s.
