Pricing and Availability :
Intex Cloud FX is available exclusively on Snapdeal.com for Rs. 1999 in two colors – Black and White. The device also supports several languages like English, Hindi and Tamil. Aircel has also extended an offer for Cloud FX users. Aircel subscribers can avail 500MB data free per month for 3 months by simply SMSing ‘INTEX’ to 121.
With a price tag of Rs. 1999, a smartphone instead of a feature phone is a welcome upgrade for buyers. Although the experience which you get with an Intex Cloud FX is not something which will make you go wow, but it still manages to do the basic tasks of a smartphone decently. We believe that because of the price point, it will attract a lot of entry level phone buyers.
