Micromax was first to try with Windows Phone platform and as expected Karbonn had joined the line up now. Amazon India listed all new Karbonn Titanium Wind W4 smartphone running on Windows Phone 8.1 OS at just 5,999 INR. Windows Phone OS got decent user base in India but they got limited smartphone models available in the market.

So you don’t need to worry about if other features seem to be interesting.
The 4 inch of display makes it comfortable to use with single hand while the Dual SIM card support with 3G is another attractive factor. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are all in there and to offer a bit of photography, it got 5MP shooter on the back with VGA shooter at front.
