Microsoft and Cyanogenmod have struck pen on paper to form an alliance that will see phones with Micromax hardware and Cyanogenmod software released, in an effort to match Xiaomi’s highly modified Android smartphones.
Meanwhile, the details of the first effort of the partnership was posted here on this site last week. The result was a 5″ HD screen-equipped Micromax Canvas 5 with 2GB of RAM and a purported 18 megapixels camera.
According to info coming in right now from India, the Canvas 5 will not only be high-spec’d but will also be water-proofed. While we are yet to confirm the gist, keep in mind that the phone is rumored that Micromax will release it at a price point of 22,000 Indian rupees.
