AISHA AT YOUR SER­VICE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

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.
