There are several Indonesian sites that have caught hold of the new LG wink series phones. LG is already a big player in the low range mobile phones industry and does like to introduce phones and better make phones in this range every now and then. The Wink C305 is one of the three phones that the company has introduced in this series and is all set to give the low end phones in south eastern Asia a good run for their money. The main competition for the phone seems to be the low end handsets from Nokia and other low end manufacturers of the sub-continent. But the features that LG has packed in the phone seem to be good enough to beat them to the throttle.
The LG Wink C305 is a classy looking phone that boasts pretty cool exteriors (just that we did not like the curved corners and color selection!) with the support for full QWERTY keyboard and a good looking 2.4’’ TFT display. The three phones that the company has released in the series so far have been targeted at all the different classes of users and the C305 seems to be targeted at the lower mid-range buyers.
Feature-wise the phone seems pretty strong one because of its QWERTY keyboard and elongated screen and its sleek dimensions and size (114.5mm x 59.6mm x 13mm to be precise). It is also equipped with most of the modern whims and fantasies like Bluetooth and multimedia support. One of the special addition to the feature list is the support for social networking websites (social networking integration is done in most of the sub continental low end phones as well!) like Facebook and Twitter also there is a SNS manager or social networking service manager that takes care of all your social networking information like status updates etc. The phone can also run on WIFI which is another plus point and that it has a good enough 2MP camera can also be considered a plus.

Besides these there are a few other things that need to be put straight over the discussion about the phone. Firstly, about the battery the device supports a 900mAh battery which indeed is pretty less for a device carrying capabilities to connect to the Internet. Also an expandable memory slot of up to 4Gb may sound a little disheartening to some.
But besides that the phone features excellent qualities those that can be pretty much an eye candy for the low-end buyers.The phone is labelled at price of 1099000 rupiah (indonesian currency) which in my mind will amount to not more that 10k in india. So pack your pockets and get ready for a new phone India.
