Project Android One: Google’s bid to build ultra cheap Smartphones
With a view to build ultra cheap Smartphone, search giant Google launched Project Android One at Google I/O 2014 in San Francisco. Google I/O is Google’s annual developer meeting.
Project Android One is a design reference platform that will enable manufacturers to build ultra-cheap smartphones with much more ease. Google wants to build a Smartphone within Rs. 6000 – 7000 range with a list of recommended apps from Play Auto-installs.
Google will launch the programme from India and it has already tied with Micromax, Karbonn and Spice as initial partners.
