The metal design might be off-track at this price, but we are expecting a smart polycarbonate look. Adverts are pointing to amazing sound quality—plausibly of DTS or Dolby grade on the Yuphoria.

As for the OS, it is Cyanogen 12 all the way. A way more improved interface is expected than what we saw on Yureka and we can of course expect specs based on the latest Android 5.0 version—Lollipop. In case you are looking for a budget buy with classy specs, Yu’s Yuphoria is the best way to go.

Net Neutrality: Facebook’s Internet.Org Expands In India

We can always bank on Facebook to work a miracle even while TRAI is trying to pack up net neutrality for once and all. Facebook has launched a platform, internet.org on Monday. This offers ground for developers to allow net access in growing niches and low income sectors in India.

Net Neutrality: Facebook's Internet.Org Expands In IndiaCurrently, developers are trying to gauge the regulations applicable for joining the same besides also understanding the kind of content considered apt for being featured here. The platform had earlier been launched in February this year in alliance with Reliance Communications. However, a large number of content creators and e-comm portals pulled out citing plausible violations of principle for net neutrality back then. The service is currently available in eight different countries besides India and is eyeing to bring in more than 8 million people online.

With the issues related to net neutrality taking on more severity in India, Chris Daniels, VP for product at Internet.org has expressed their involvement in understanding the main concerns involved. India ranks third in the list of highest internet surfer/users globally. This, Daniels opines that net neutrality does not negate the need to bring more people online. We believe internet.org is one app that will bridge these gaps soon.
