It will have an updated version of the Froyo and has a better and faster performance compared to the earlier versions of the Android OS. The handset will be the lightest handset in the market, which will weigh just 100 grams. Customers will be offered customized designs for the covers and will have the dimensions of 56 X 106 X 12mm. The company will also be power packing the handset with some pre-loaded apps. The home screen of the phone will allow the user to have direct access to Facebook, Twitter, e-mail and web browser.
