We take our first look at the XOLO Win Q900s Windows Phone

The XOLO Win Q900s is touted as the world's lightest Windows Phone device, and recently went on sale in India.

The company's maiden Windows Phone device is a budget smartphone and intends to compete in a crowded price segment with basic, yet decent, specifications and the Windows Phone 8.1 experience. I got my hands on one, and head past the break to check out the what's included in the box, and my first impressions of the device.

XOLO Win Q900s First Impressions

The Win Q900s comes in a rather heavy box compared to other budget Lumias which is ironic for the lightest Windows Phone device. It's a solid box, and can take in a little rough handling during shipping.

Once you open the box, you'll find the phone and the removable battery alongside. There's a pair of in-ear headsets, a USB sync and charge cable, and a USB power adapter to use with the cable.

XOLO also bundles a couple of useful accessories in the box. There's a pretty good leather-finish flip cover for the phone and a screen protector. The two can keep your phone safe from a little casual and rough handling. The flip cover sports a neat XOLO branding at the back. You need to take off the phone's back panel, and replace it with the plastic panel on the flip cover.

The Dual SIM smartphone is already up for sale in India, and competes with the budget Lumia devices as well as the Micromax Canvas Win W121 in the sub-$200 price segment.
