Beware of heavy discounts on phone

  2. 2. Beware of heavy discounts onphone This morning I saw a deal in my mail inbox that sounded too good to be true; the sender was promising an Android phone from Acer with 3G, WiFi, 3 megapixel camera for just Rs 5,000. While the deal was indeed true there was a catch, the model that was being sold was from old stock. And once I read the specs it was clear the deal was not as good as it sounded. The phone was based on Android 1.6 (the early version of Android) with a 416 MHz processorand just 256 MB RAM.
  3. 3. Beware of heavy discounts onphone Today, even the entry level Android phone from an Indian manufacturer comes with a 600 MHz processor and Android 2.2 or 2.3. So this phone though from Acer would be as good as throwing away those Rs 5000. I prodded further and found that online retailers regularly do this to clear old stocks. While some of this old stock clearance gives you good value for money most of them are just waste of money.
