In an unsurprising move, Micromax just increased the shipping days of Micromax Canvas HD from 1-3 business days to 20 days. Many people complained over the limited stock and SOLD OUT message at Snapdeal website. Today, we learnt that Micromax has sold over 9,000 piece within a day, and now they are running out of the stock. Instead of making people wait, they have now increased the shipping days, so they can understand user’s demand and can arrange manufacturing accordingly.
As a fan of Micromax product, we’ve been closely following their products from quite some time. The V-day launch got over within minutes and furious consumers were unhappy about the long wait. Perhaps, Micromax, as a company, failed to understand the anticipation of their product. After the weeks of teasing the product was released at 12:00 am on V-day and when we checked at 12:07am, it was running out of stock. Fortunately, we managed to grab one device at the end of the day and expecting it to get delivered on 19th February.
Canvas HD Reappears
However, A116 has now reappeared on the Snapdeal.com website with 20 business days delivery notification. The first slot is SOLD OUT and the next batch will be available in 20 days. Surprisingly, the device is yet to reach local stores, at least in the region where I live. For Rs 13,990 Micromax Canvas HD is a steal. We even compared it with a behemoth Samsung Galaxy Grand and MTV VOLT. In all almost aspect, Canvas A116 HD is a better product. There was no second thought when we decided to purchase this lucrative product. You will get 5-inch IPS LCD display with HD resolution. Moreover, it has 1.2GHz quad core MediaTek processor with 1GB of RAM. Such a powerful processor is capable of running most of the games and apps on the device. Not to forget, that it will be running on Android 4.2 out of the box and could be upgraded to newer version shortly after.
The TV commercial and ad campaigns are yet to hit the Indian shores. Let’s hope that Micromax will launch the ad campaign soon.
We’re excited to get our hands on the product. Are you excited, too? Make sure you buy this product as soon as possible before it runs out of stock like Canvas 2. There’s still no sign of the predecessor in the market.
