Etisalat Wants You To Go Gaga With New Android Smartphone

Etisalat recently launched its Gaga Android smartphone targeted at today’s data consuming youth. The phone runs on Android 2.2, has a 2.8 inch full capacity touch screen, a 3.2 megapixel camera and an accelerometer built in. It also includes WiFi and Bluetooth services as well as FM radio and GPS navigation.

You can view and edit documents on the go with its built in document viewer that lets you view and edit Word documents and Excel spreadsheets. It also comes with an 8GB memory card which can hold about 1,600 songs. Not bad. It packs a 528MHz processor.

The official site says it has “fast internet download speed(s) of up to 7.2Mbps”. Hopefully this isn’t false advertising as it runs on Etisalat’s 3.75G HSPA+ network which should be good enough.

The network introduces this phone along with a pretty sweet offer that consists of 20k/sec calling to all networks, no access fee, 4 months of free 50MB data and a price tag of N18,999 which is applicable to new and existing customers.

One thing that might be a downside though is that the phone is fully customized for Etisalat and is locked to their network.

What do you think about the phone? Would you buy it; is the offer inviting?

You can get in on the offer by texting gaga to 8180.

UPDATE: This video basically shows what the phone is about, though there will be some differences. Watch and share your thoughts.
