Dell has entered the Indian market in a big way by catering to more than just high-end smartphone customers and will be offering two 3G-ready Android 2.1 devices to low and mid-end smartphone customers.

They are named the XCD28 and XCD35.

The former, priced at Rs 10,990, is available in markets now.

The XCD35 will only be arriving by December though, and will be priced at Rs 16,990.

The company had introduced their first phone/tablet -- Dell Streak -- earlier this year.
