Similar to the Fly LINKZ phone launched by Meridian Mobile, the LAVA A9 offers many comparable features at a comparable price – the Fly LINKZ is priced at Rs.5,509. The key difference lies in the fact that the Fly LINKZ is a full-touch phone, with an accelerometer and motion sensor, where as the LAVA A9 has a more conventional interface, and might appeal to those who are not yet used to full-touch, or those who do not really like the full-touch interface. The Fly LINKZ can also be called more feature-rich, and includes Snaptu, a popular social networking application that lets users simultaneously connect with all their friends, contacts, and events from Twitter, Facebook, Picasa, Flickr and Google Calendar, and receive updates from the user’s favourite news sources from across the world.
