Thanks for the tip manikandan!

  • Very nice, but it's only available in India I guess. We need such a product here in Indonesia.
  • Waiting for the windows 10 flagship..
  • You'll be waiting till spring.
  • *autumn
  • Bhai, you have to for to long
    Because MS won't release the WP10 and Windows 10 at the same time
  • There's no "WP10" as such. Only one OS Windows 10 for all devices.
  • Call it whatever you wanna call it
    I call it WP10
    The MOBILE OS isn't ready yet, and until now we don't have a specific name for it
    Tho it have a one name, one core, and one UI. But it won't be the same OS.
    Like the OS which will work on the PC WILL NOT WORK ON THE PHONE
    and vice versa
  • Won't wait. I would buy 730.
  • The render looks horrible. :/
  • All the icons are wrong!
  • Yeah like a version of start screen on Android.launcher
  • All the icons are 930.
  • It's still windows phone. The render means nothing.
  • Yup.. No Segoe WP font. I switched to WP just bcoz I liked the typeface so much.
  • Disgusting. People who are familiar with the OS will think, "what the * is that?"
  • Pretty huge battery for 4 incher
  • *Off topic* Camera 360 sight is out of beta now
  • Yea.
  • *offtopic*
    Anyone noticed snapdeal is giving Acer Iconia W4 @13,900 only (49% off)
  • cool thanks for the info. i gad initially thought about buying a windows tablet but have decided to spend money on a laptop.
  • No SIM support. It's useless for me.
  • I hope it sells well. It has awesome specs for its price.
  • The pic is completely wrong, with wrong icons, and wrong font style.
  • The only problem is that, with such companies if you get a lemon you are screwed. Also long term reliability on these is not that great. Just pray that you get a good device.
  • I will buy it for my small sister...
  • these oems find difficult to compete bcoz in the case ehst happened to all suvh android oems that. they were making budget phones and soon moto was launched and tried to destroy the reputation whatever oems like xolo,micromax snd other oems had. now in case of windows phone Lumia is the only smartphone marketed well and Lumia is nokia/ now Microsoft. there's only 2 oems in WP where wp can still sell except Lumia are. one plus, and xiaomi
  • Yet another Blu Win Jr?
  • They should have just took the screenshot from actual device, rather than wasting time in recreating it, what a poor render, looks ugly!
  • Wow a four inch phone. Haven't seen one of those in a while.
  • It looks like the original Windows Phone 7 Samsung Focus!
  • Looks like a toy
  • Does Benny Lava make these Lava phones?
  • Great specs for the price. I am impressed, specially the RAM, ambient light sensor, the back camera with flash and even the storage of 8GB.
  • It’s great to see Indian companies getting in on the Windows Phone action. I am sick and tired of only having to choose android when looking for a cheap phone. The specs of the phone are pretty good even when you compare it with android phones in the price bracket and the phone will definitely user experience than those android phones. The smoothness of the OS makes it ideal for the budget end of the market.
  • I think The Lava Iris Win1 is a great way to lure people who are sick of the lag and sluggish performance of Android to try out the Windows Phone OS. And i like how they won’t be getting a bad phone for it. A quad core processor and an entire GB of RAM means that they will be able to get their hands on almost all the apps from the store!
