New Delhi: Tata Docomo, the GSM brand of Tata Tele services, in association with Korean handset maker Samsung Mobile, today launched India's first Android-powered mobile phone.
Priced at Rs.28,990, Samsung Galaxy (I7500) has a 3.2-inch full touch-screen and WiFi connectivity, and will provide users access to Google mobile services and full web browsing at high speed.
