Samsung has launched their latest android phablet in India, namely Galaxy Grand. The phone has a huge 5 inch TFT touchscreen and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. One of the key features of the Galaxy Grand is the Smart Dual SIM, where you can use both SIM’s simultaneously. You can receive calls on SIM1 while taking a call from SIM2.
Asim Warsi, Vice President, Samsung Mobile said
Continuing with our legacy of launching innovative devices that redefine consumer experiences, I take great pride in announcing the launch of the Galaxy Grand in the Indian market. The Galaxy Grand is revolutionary not only in terms of the great Smartphone experience that it provides but also in terms of its value proposition.

The phone will be available from February in White and Blue colour options. Samsung is also offering Vodafone customers 2GB data download free per month for 2 months. At the launch, Samsung also revealed that it has sold 10 million (1 crore) Galaxy series devices till now in India.
We feel that the handset has very good features for a relatively low price. With Micromax announcing the A116 yesterday, it seems that the mid range phablet war has begun.
