XOLO X900: Review [Day 1 Impressions]

This is fast. Super fast.

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. Ideally, I’d like to believe that the Lava service station will take care of activating the device, otherwise expect ‘oh shit! I broke the XOLO SIM card tray’ messages all over Twitter/Facebook.

Aside, XOLO X900 works with microSIM and the price of XOLO X900 in India is Rs. 22,000 (is available at Croma stores).

- More in the coming days, but if you want us to focus on specifics of XOLO/Intel processor, please let us know (in the comment section).
