Google unveiled the Android One initiative at its annual developers conference in June with Micromax, Karbonn, and Spice confirmed as the launch partners. Under the programme, manufacturers benefit from lower cost of development, by sharing integration and testing resources with Google. Android One customers are promised regular software updates, so this sounds like a win-win, at least on paper.

  • Canvas A1 is one of the best
    Jack Flaming (Sep 22, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Micromax Canvas A1 is definitely one of the best smartphones in this price range. I just started using it and finding it awesome. The UI is smooth and processor works fast. The camera quality is also nice. The lack of screen protection technology is a con, but everything else is just fine. I like the phone very much.
