the MTV Volt device will get its competition and comparison from Micromax Canvas HD and Indian companies like Karboon which are also releasing 5 inch devices in the same price range of around Rs. 13000. These can be the alternatives to be thought of for MTV Volt. It has some striking resemblance to Note 2 in design aspect, but the only let down is the hardware component which is not upto the mark as we can see the poor quality of the device which is what we can get at 13k.

The device is going to be released all over India in stores as well as in e Stores like eBay, Flipkart, Snapdeal etc. With the competitive pricing and good features MTV can sure think of making its mark in the Budget section of Smartphones in the Indian market with its popularity in the youth segment.
