This system made it hard to get in hands and today’s announcement will be welcomed by all the android geeks around the world.

Adding to this, its very recent spat with both Cyanogen mod (the company that provides software to this mobile) and Micromax (an Indian smartphone manufacturer that took the rights for selling cyanogen mod ROM running devices) raised lot of curiosity and concern over the phones future, especially in India. Although the company is able to uplift the temporary ban issued on its mobile sale in India, its only temporary and is applicable until the stocks last. To avoid any future ban, the company is swiftly pushing its newly established software team to develop a new ROM for it’s mobile device and was able to release an alpha built based on android lolipop.
