MTS is launching its first CDMA smartphone in the market, the Android 2.1-based HTC Pulse, a launch that also celebrates the company reaching the milestone of 10 million subscribers in India. The phone also happens to be the first operator-subsidized smartphone in the country – it comes free with a one year contract that has a post-paid monthly data plan of Rs. 1,500.

With the plan, users will get 1,500 minutes of talk time, 1,500 messages and 1,500MB of data every month for the first 12 months. The phone can also be purchased separately from MTS for Rs. 18,000.

The HTC Pulse doesn’t shine brightly in the face of its competitors, but for free, it will definitely attract those not looking to spend on a smartphone, but want one nonetheless. It has a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7600 processor, 256MB RAM and 512MB ROM, a 5MP camera, and 3.1MBps CDMA EVDO 3G connectivity. Its 3-inch capacitive touchscreen has a 320x480 resolution. The phone also supports microSD cards up to 32GB.

[RELATED_ARTICLE]The phone has a 1300 mAh Li-ion battery that is rated to deliver up to 3 hours and 34 minutes of talktime, and a standby time of 373 hours. It weighs 120 grams.

Apart from the usual Android ecosystem on offer, users can also use Apalya for mobile TV, a service MTS has tied up with.

There has been no comment from MTS whether the HTC Pulse will get a Froyo update.
