As previously rumored, India-based smartphone maker Lava has officially announced their new Windows Phone 8.1 device, the Xolo WIN Q900s, which weighs just 100g. Pre-orders have begun for a launch in the second week of July.
The weight of the WIN Q900s is certainly the big selling point for this phone. At 100g, this makes it the lightest Windows Phone product to be released, at least so far. Even with its small weight, the WIN Q900s has a decent sized 4.7 inch display with a 1280x720 resolution.
Inside there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz, along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot for expansion. It also has an 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a front facing 2 megapixel camera. It also supports two SIM cards.
Snapdeal.com was the only place anyone could have pre-ordered the Xolo WIN Q900s, for the price of Rs. 9999 (about $166). However, it appears that Snapdeal has already sold out of its units just a few hours after its pre-order page went live. When the phone comes up for sale again, the price will be going up to Rs 11,999.
What do you think of Lava entering the Windows Phone race with its new Xolo WIN Q900s device that has its light weight as its biggest bullet point feature?
