Wammy Note Review
Wammy Note Display
For those who want a good looking phone, display is important. Wammy Note will not disappoint you in that respect. In fact, Wammy Note belongs to that innovative category of ‘phablet’, so its screen is an expansive 144 x 83 x 12 mm in dimension. The 5 inch Capacitive Super HD touch screen is also a winner in terms of resolution with 800 x 480 pixels res.
Wammy Note Software
The Smartphone runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for now. However, the company is slated to launch the tablets Wammy 7, Wammy Ethos and Wammy Plus in September, all which will run on Jelly Bean. After that, the company officials confirmed, Wammy Note can be upgraded to Jelly bean. It has a MTK6575 processor clocked at 1 GHz. With internal storage of 4 GB and extendable memory of 32 GB (using micro SD card), it will not let you down. The RAM of 512 MB could be improved, though.
Wammy Note Other Applications
It is expected that a Smartphone running on Android ICS will have a bucket load of features and apps and Wammy Note does not fail in that department. The Wammy Note has GPS, A-GPS, FM Radio, ebook reader, email, messaging and VPN services, Google Search, Documents to Go, Calendar, Calculator, Portable Hotspot, Tethering, Flash Player and interactive Wallpapers.
Wammy Note Camera
The Wammy Note has a surprisingly high end front facing camera of 8 MP. To facilitate video chatting, there is a rear facing camera of 1.3 MP.
Wammy Note Connectivity
The Wammy Note supports both 2G (GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz) and 3G (WCDMA 2100MHz) connectivity, which is expected from a good Smartphone. It is also equipped with Bluetooth 2.0, USB and WiFi 802.11/b/g.
Wammy Note Battery
Wammy Note is powered by a 2500 mAh Lithium ion battery. Wicked Leak claims that it provides 8 hours of talk time and 260 hours of standby time. However, Smartphone seldom live up to the claimed battery life, so this claim can only be verified once it is available in the market from August 30, 2012.
Wammy Note Price
As of now, the decided price of the Wammy Note is Rs. 11,000. It will be available for purchase on the official website of Wicked Leak from the end of this month.
For new firm like Wicked Leak, it is difficult to make a niche in the already booming market of Smartphones. Especially with a phone like Samsung Galaxy Note 2 releasing only a day before Wammy Note, it is hard to predict how it will fare in the market. However, with its economical price tag and impressive features, it has a lot of potential.
