The smartphone market is seeing many changes. While the bigwigs of the smartphone market fight it out over patent battles, MTS has quietly introduced a range of mobiles in India.

A 2GB card is provided with the phone. Users can expand the external memory up to 32 GB. The processor is an 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1. This processor is known for its ability to decode HD video.
The screen is a 2.8-inch (240 x 320 pixels) capacitive touchscreen display and the camera is a decent 3 megapixel one. With a standard battery, the MTag 281 also comes with additional back covers in three cool colors – red, white and blue. The phone has a number of connectivity options including Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n or mobile hotspot, Bluetooth and A-GPS. The phone has a 3G EDVO option which supports 3.1 Mbps connectivity speed.
