The five new phones from Lenovo marks its entry into the Indian mobile market, and even though all phones run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich except for the A60, which still runs on Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. It’s interesting to note that the Lenovo phones fit right into the brackets that have already been defined. They don’t offer anything new or ground breaking, but have given more choice to the consumer, with the promise of great build quality across price points.
