Low-budget tablets in India have been quite successful, as the number of users and students buying them have increased significantly. Well, the other reason apart from the price is the joy of experiencing Android. Sorry, Apple. They think your products are overpriced.

You no longer have to hop from one local store to another store to compare mobile phone prices. Your job is a lot easier now. Thanks to PriceBaba.com, you can now obtain the (local stores) best price of any mobile phone right from your home.
The new price comparison site, PriceBaba.com was launched earlier this month, providing users with the latest and lowest price of available products. PriceBaba decided to take a different route and isn’t like any other price comparison sites.
PriceBaba does not compare products that are sold online, but in fact compares and gives you the lowest price of available product from your city’s local stores.
Currently PriceBaba is functional only in Mumbai, however, has future plans to expand its service across India. The new comparison site currently lists over 400 mobiles from 26 manufacturers and 110 locations in Mumbai. Each of these retailers are evaluated on over 13 different considerations that enables consumers to make a choice.
For instance, the lowest and best price for Samsung Galaxy SIII (S3) is Rs. 37,500, which is available in two local shops in Mumbai. PriceBaba also provides you with a rating for each store listed (on a scale of 5) along with the store’s address and contact details.
Additionally, PriceBaba provides a mobile friendly price history tool that highlights the price fluctuations for a given mobile phone.
PriceBaba was co-founded by Annkur Agarwal, and here are some of the interesting answers that he had to give to our questions:
Started from frustration. Sometime in 2010 it struck me that, even though I have given up retail, there are still lots of calls coming in to buy mobiles, help choose what to buy and friends asking me to find the price for things they want to buy. It struck me that people want a friendly authority to tell them what to do. And that’s where Babagiri started in my mind. It took some time to get to the exact model and implementation. Somewhere in between, I finalized on the name as well.
We like to call ourselves a price intelligence engine. Not just a tool telling you the lowest price. If you look at the price of Samsung Galaxy S2 on the site, you would notice the chart showing the ups and downs from Rs 29,700 to Rs 26750. It gives a unique perspective and often intelligent buying decisions are made from these.
Our core offering of course is the best buying price along with reliable location where you can transact. All this in the offline world. We believe this is the first of its kind approach in India and while I would be biased, we believe that we understand the problem in depth and hence can come up with solutions that are hard to imagine. That said, let’s stay tuned for some more announcements we do.
I have said this before, but would repeat, we like to iterate slow and almost always based on customer feedback. There are 100 things to do, deciding which 90 to avoid is the key.
We actually do not guarantee the lowest price. We inevitably end up doing that often, but thats not the only motive. Look at us as a companion for shopping in the real world. If a shop keeper is going to be rude or would just want to dump stock, we would rather avoid going to them. Here is some bit from our FAQs page.
The price advised by PriceBaba is the best bargain price. And the best price may not always be the lowest price. What that means is that you may bargain for that price when buying from a local retailer in the real world. Our focus is not to push deals from merchants offering the lowest price, rather we believe in giving our users the most relevant prices in their city. In process of doing that, more often than not, we should be able to help you shop at the lowest price in you locality and at the same time ensure that you have a good experience shopping based on our guidance.
We simply do not compete in that zone. Showing online prices is easy. Offline is difficult. Period. No matter how much ecommerce booms or discounts, majority of the shopping is done offline and shall continue to happen offline. That said, I do acknowledge that online at times give good value to consumers, we choose to cater to the ones who buy offline for now. If that needs us to make changes to the medium over which we interact with our users, we shall do that!
Yes of course. We are ambitions and aggressive. Allow us some time to get running. You shall hear from us
The inspiration was more of a frustration that I described before. But I took Steve Jobs comments on focus a bit too seriously. I side stepped my existing ventures and focussed on PriceBaba for the last 6 months. A lot of learning happened during the period and we are now starting to see some results. What inspires on a day to day basis? Joel, your email, a tweet from a user or a challenge thrown to us by anyone.
I am a strong believer in value. Let’s deliver value and grow. Online ticketing gives great value, it boomed like crazy. Matrimonial sites TG wasn’t the regular geek on PC, but parents did whatever was necessary, since it added value. And let’s make solutions for India, instead of doing what worked in the west.
In the recent Railway Budget, it was promised that The Indian Railways will come up with advance technology, which will not only help the management, but also the public. The Indian Railways has launched a beta version of the website trainenquire.com, which enables passengers to know the current status of trains including time and other details.
The new TrainEnquiry.com site has been developed by Indian Railway’s National Train Enquiry System (NTES) and promises to the needs of modern-day Indian Railways passengers and their expectations of online user experience. The new website will not only provide the running status of trains but will also help you track the exact location of trains across the country.
The site has got a new look, which is currently in beta. In order to know the status of a train, all you need to do is either enter the train number or the name of the train. Alternatively, you can enter the “From” and “To” station codes or the station names. A drop-down list with matching train names/stations will be shown, from which you need select the appropriate train.
In the next page, you will be shown the current train status details including, location, time, expected time of arrival, next two stops, and previous two stops.
More or less, the site is very user friendly, unlike the older version, which has annoying pop-ups! However, the website is not currently designed for mobile users, so it isn’t completely mobile friendly. Perhaps an integration with Google Maps would be great and we hope to see that when the site comes out of beta.

There are over hundreds of online shopping (e-commerce) websites in India that claim to sell products like smartphones, cameras, novels, pen drives, and so on, at a cheaper rate. However, it not only becomes a difficult task, but a time consuming job to compare the prices of products from various online shopping websites in order to find the best deal/offer.
MySmartPrice is one such helpful site that allows you to quickly compare the prices of mobile phones, books and cameras from major online shopping sites in India. Along with the price tag, the site also provides a brief specification of the particular product, thus enabling you to compare prices at one place and find the best offer available.
With MySmartPrice, you can compare the product prices for the popular shopping websites like FlipKart, HomeShop18, Infibeam, Letsbuy, Future bazaar, Sulekha, Indian Plaza and more.
While I was testing the site, I was surprised to see that prices at Flipkart are way too higher, and Sulekha.com offered the best price offer when compared to other popular online shopping sites.
Comparing prices for a particular products using MySmartPrice is simple as pie. All you need to do is enter the product name and click on “Search”. In the next page, you will see a list of online shopping websites with the price tag for that product. The site that tops the list is generally the lowest price available for the product.
For example, to find the lowest price available for Nokia Lumia 800, simply type in ‘Nokia Lumia 800’ in the search box and hit enter. You will be shown a brief specification of the Windows smartphone along with the reviews and ratings. Scroll down to see the best available offer for the phone along with some additional details of the smartphone.
The site fetches price tags from different shopping sites and displays the result in real-time. The overall speed of the site is exceptionally well. It is definitely worth bookmarking and sharing with your friends.
