AISHA AT YOUR SERVICE
After coming up with a dual-core Android smartphone, Micromax has added yet another feather to its Android cap. The A50 is an affordable dual-sim GSM Android smartphone with 650MHZ processor, priced economically at 5,000. `The A50 has a white plastic body with a thin metal bezel running between the front and back panels. The display isn’t very bright, but considering the price tag, we are not cribbing. Running the Android v2.3, the A50 managed to fetch emails, download apps and even browse the web without much difficulty. Surprisingly, Micromax has managed to add an artifi- cial intelligence voice assistant software named Aisha. This works exactly like the iPhone’s Siri. When we enquired about the weather, it fetched the temperature using network data. Similarly, it launched Google Maps when we asked for coffee shops nearby. And Aisha easily understood Indian English!
The A50 has a 2MP camera that captured just about average images. Other features include FM radio, wireless keyboard and sound recorder.
