Micromax Superfone Canvas A100 smartphone offers 5-inch display at a bargain

Phablets could very well be the new niche market that smartphone manufacturers might want to look into, thanks to the efforts by Samsung which resulted in the Samsung Galaxy Note, followed by the impending release of its sequel, the Galaxy Note 2. Well, the name Micromax might not register on anyone’s radar, considering the rather oxymoronic nature of the name, but here they are with the Micromax Superfone Canvas A100 that sports a rather generous 5-inch LCD display that places it in phablet territory, in addition to having Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running right out of the box.

The 5” display has a resolution count of 854 x 480, where it is accompanied by a 5-megapixel rear and VGA front cameras, not to mention a dual-core 1GHz processor, 4GB of internal memory that can be further expanded thanks to the microSD memory card slot, in addition to dual-SIM slots for that added touch of convenience. The Micromax Superfone Canvas A100 will retail for $180 after conversion sans contract in India, and I do wonder whether there is a market for such a device here in the US.
