The Spice Stellar Virtuoso Pro has gone official in India along with the company’s very own personal cloud service which is the first of its kind in the country. Spice has also announced price details for the smartphone and it will provide users with 2GB of free space on its online storage service.
Well, Cloud isn’t limited to Spice Stellar Virtuoso Pro owners only, as anyone can sign up. So far, there seems to be no priced subscription options available and 2GB of complimentary space is all that users will receive. On the bright side, an unlimited number of accounts can be created and we’ve noticed that there’s no email verification as entering any random ID works during signup, with direct access to hoarding content online.
The service allows users to backup data like images, videos, music and contacts which can be accessed through an Android device or from the web. For security, the company has implemented encryption and one way hash algorithms as well as Microsoft Azure firewall protection. Coming to the Spice Stellar Virtuoso Pro handset, this piece of hardware runs on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform and it features dual SIM slots, both supporting 3G networks.
The Spice Stellar Virtuoso Pro is like the rest of the lot in the series, a budget-friendly smartphone. Here, buyers will find a decent-sized 4.5-inch LCD touchscreen with FWVGA resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. The device comes with a dual core processor that operates at 1GHz and while there’s no mention of the RAM and flash storage, the handset is embedded with a microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB. A 5MP camera rests on the rear and the front dons a 1.3MP webcam. Other features include SRS TruMedia audio and a 1700mAh battery.
The Stellar Virtuoso Pro will be available for purchase starting next week for a price of Rs 7,999. The company’s Cloud service will come preloaded with the smartphone as an application.
