Xolo's first Windows Phone 8.1 handset is upon us and has an interesting key selling point - its weight.
The device claims to be the lightest Windows Phone smartphone ever at just 100g but has probably overlooked the recently unveiled Allview Impera i, announced a couple of days ago, which weighs in at just 98.9 g.
The Xolo WIN Q900s has a lot in common with the Impera i - there's the Snapdragon 200 chipset with 1.2 GHz processor cores, 1 GB of RAM with 8 GB of storage expandable via a microSD card slot. The cameras are an LED-enabled 8 MP main and 2 MP front-facing one. The Xolo WIN Q900s also has support for two SIM cards.
Xolo is launching the WIN Q900s in India in collaboration with local retailer Snapdeal which offers the device on pre-order at a discounted price of INR9,999 (around 122) but the phone was quickly sold out of the available 5000 units.
Xolo is expected to start selling the device at the price of INR11,999 (146) in mid-July.
