The CDMA is locked to China Telecom, and the GSM is for call/sms only. Useless outside of China.

Chances of launching in India is less bcos some reports says its only made for China. But if launched, price will be around 17K. For its specs, this is a real deal. K3v2 chip has performed better in benchmark tests than other quad core chipsets. I'd loved a 4.5 inch screen in this phone.

Looking at the hardware specs, if this phone is launched in India, many regional manufacturers will be blown out of competition.....
