Android One Aims for $30 to $50 Smartphone Prices

Among other issues, smartphone costs are a barrier to widespread adoption of Internet access services in India and other South Asia and Southeast Asia countries. That is why Google is making Android One--its low cost Android operating system--a priority for India.

Phones made by manufacturers under the standard were priced at about $100 in 2014 and early 2015.

Facebook and Twitter already count India as their second and third largest market by users respectively.
