As a part of my regime, I have to present the hottest online shopping news .LAVA, a Noida based Indian handset manufacture will be launching Iris Win1, priced at Rs. 4,999 which will be exclusively available via Flipkart from Thursday onwards. This will be a stepping stone for the company because it is the first device by LAVA equipped with Windows 8.1 in it.
Also for those who could not grab a Xiaomi for themselves we decided to put forward an another option by comparing these two products for you. With this price tag we tried to find out whether this smartphone have an upper hand to the popular Xiaomi Redmi 1s.
Rajiv Ahlawat, Director, Mobility, Microsoft India stated,
"Our deep engagement with local OEMs is one of the engines of growth for Windows Phone and we are proud of our partnership with Lava. With the Iris Win1, Windows Phone is now available to a whole new group of consumers in India, who are looking for innovation and value."
