Strawberry Mobile:New Re-branded Android Smartphones

Integra Group, has a long previous experience in marketing mobile phone in Bangladesh. Though most of them were feature phone with some multimedia addition. But its latest effort include the marketing of few re-branded android smartphones, the Strawberry Spark & Strawberry Pearl. Let us have a look at their specs & pics.

  Strawberry Spark
Price: 11,990 TK
3G, Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 OS; Dual SIM (Quad Band)
Capacitive Touch 4.63” FWVGA, Camera: 5.0 MP AF
Proximity Sensor,  WiFi 802.11b/g/n with Hotspot
Dual-Core 1GHz  ARM11 Processor
4GB ROM + 512 RAM, Micro SD Support up to 32 GB
1600mAh Battery 

  Strawberry Pearl
Price:10,990 TK
3G, Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 OS; Dual SIM (Quad Band)
Capacitive Touch 4.3” FWVGA, Camera: 5.0 MP AF
Proximity Sensor,  WiFi 802.11b/g/n with Hotspot
Single-Core 1GHz  ARM11 Processor
4GB ROM + 512 RAM, Micro SD Support up to 32 GB
1600mAh Battery 

Yep, I think you will also agree with me that the price is competitive but would be much better if a bit lower. As Strawberry is yet to prove its competence. If you want to go for it the hardware seems ok but the OS is not the latest one. In fact you will be able to have a similar specs device
at similar price from the other Bangladeshi re-branded marketers like Symphony or Walton.So think before you make a choice.
