The phone is on sale for customers from April 2012 onwards at Croma stores and at, followed by availability in other retail chains and online stores from May.

For somebody who has played with Samsung  and HTC devices, we found XOLO to be super fast, thanks to the Intel processor. Having said that, inserting a SIM card was way too clumsy process and one would have expected a better mechanism to do the same.

Aside, XOLO X900 works with microSIM and the price of XOLO X900 in India is Rs. 22,000.
