Karbonn is apparently coming back with a bang after lying dormant for some time. While people speak only about gadgets like Android devices, Apple products and cool looking high end smartphones, Karbonn comes back with a few offers.
Karbonn mobile handsets are well known for their great battery efficiency and talk time battery backup, not to mention the attractive, reasonable and wallet friendly price tags. Karbonn’s latest announcement was about the release of a new handset, which is classic in design, comes with decent specifications absolutely fit for ordinary mobile users and all at a low price. The new Karbonn handset which is due to be released is the Karbonn K44. On similar line, the Karbonn K 600 has also been launched.
Karbonn K44 looks decent and has a flip form factor. Flip phones are rare in the market nowadays. Karbonn K44 is quite small when you consider its dimensional measurements of 95.5x46x16.8 mm. K44 sports a QCIF 2 inch 256k colour screen with a screen size of 128 x 160 pixels. Karbonn K44 is also a dual SIM handset with a camera specification which isn’t that impressive, but still good enough if you prefer budgetary phones like these. The digital camera offers a maximum resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and features digital zoom as well.
The camera supports MP4/3G video types and JPG/BMP/GIF type images. The WAP browser in K44 is not too impressive.

Although the camera offers 640 x 480 pixels maximum resolution, the image quality is rumoured to be not that good. The media player is quite good, supporting various popular audio/video formats. Karbonn K44 also features Mobile Tracker system in case the user loses the phone. The price details of Karbonn K44 aren’t disclosed till now. But the price tag would probably make you smile with the low price of around Rs. 2, 500/- in India.
