Never let it be said that the West ever misses an opportunity to shaft the natives.
A few hours back, Google’s Motorola unit launched the $117 Moto E Android smartphone for Indians but offered them a mere 2.2GB of internal storage (remaining 1.8GB is taken by system software).
Come on, 2.2GB of internal storage for Indians?
What is the average Chutiya with his 1TB cache of stolen Bollywood, Kollywood and Tollywood drivel supposed to do?
Go out and buy microSD cards to fill it up with videos of Anushka Shetty’s jiggling udders and Tamannnnnnaahhhh Bhatia’s Martian mien?
Is there no justice at all in the world? 🙁
Cheap Phone – Looks Cheap
Moto E runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat), has a 5MP rear camera, a 4.3-inch screen, a MicroSD slot to add up to 32GB storage and a 1980mAh battery that’s supposed to last a full day (no, it won’t).
The device is 12.3mm thick (6.2mm at edges), weighs 142gms, includes microUSB and provides a dual SIM option.
Display quality is 540x960 qHD, 256ppi and the device has the more durable Gorilla Glass 3 surface.
There’s no front camera so selfie-lovers are screwed!
I guess Indians will be pleased with the interchangeable plastic backs in gaudy colors.
Moto E is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with 1.2GHz dual-core A7 CPU Adreno 302 400MHz single-core GPU (not the greatest).
Moto E is slated for availability in early June. You can order Moto E for Rs 6,999 ($117) via the Flipkart web site.
If you ask me, Moto E is a cheap smartphone and indeed looks like one!
Indians would be better advised to look at Xiaomi’s smartphones and phablets.
