The Motorola WX288 for India has a price of approximately Rs. 1849, and you will understand why such a low price when you see the specs. As you know this is a low-end handset, and does not have most of the features that we have come to love on the range of smartphones.
It will not be a surprise that the Motorola WX288 will do well in the Indian market, as we know that the cell phone carriers in the country are working on getting as many handsets on the streets in rural areas as possible, you only need to look at the Nokia X1-00 to understand what we mean. They do have a good smartphone market, but these carriers know that the real money is with those who do not have much of it.
This is only a 2G GSM 900 / GSM 1800 phone and has just a 1.8-inch screen. The phone is able to store up to 800 numbers and has a talktime of 9 hours and a standby time of 550 hours. You may see by these specs that the phone does not have much to offer, but the target market will only make calls and send text messages.
The keyboard on the Motorola WX288 is soft and lights up red, and the interface is one of those that will take some getting used to. Once you have mastered it, it will be easy to understand. Oh wait, we forget to inform you that this low-budget handset comes with Bluetooth – so it does have something then.
