Apparently Google is doing more than "blessing the rains down in Africa." They just announced some new Android One based devices that will soon be available in Africa. The devices have a fancy name designed to catch consumers' attention: Infinix's HOT 2.

The phones are available now in six different African countries, including Ghana, Ivory Coast and Kenya. They are priced just under $90 USD equivalent. Here's a quick breakdown of specs for the device:
  • Quad-core MediaTek CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB storage
  • A microSD and dualSIM card slots
  • 8-megapixel primary camera
  • 2-megapixel forward camera
  • 5-inch HD screen
  • 2,200mAh battery

You can also get a "premium" version of the device with a gold paint job and 2GB Ram.

We have two comments regarding this device. One, these specs are not too shabby for a sub-$100 device. Two, why can't more Google devices have microSD slots? Grrrrr....:mad:
