The 2GB model is priced around Rs. 13,000 and it is a good competitor of the Micromax Canvas Selfie and if we compare it, then we find that there is a 13-Megapixel camera present on the front and also, a flash is also present there. So, the specs of this device are quite good. The price tag should also be kept in mind as under 15K INR you are getting a lot with this device.
