BLU has announced three new devices in the Dash range of mobiles. The most affordable is the Dash Jr., which is available for just $49 and comes in different color combinations. For the amount of money it costs, the Dash Jr. features fairly decent hardware.

The device runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which can only be described as archaic.
Dash Music 4.0 is the second device in the series, and as the name suggests, features a four-inch screen with a resolution of 800X480. It also includes a 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 3.2 MP camera, 4 GB of internal memory with a micro-SD card slot and a 1,500 mAh battery. The device runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is available unlocked for just $99.
The Dash Music 5.0 features the same internal hardware as the Music 4.0, but with a bigger 5-inch screen with 854X480 resolution and a 5 MP camera at the back along with a larger 2,000mAh battery. The Music 5.0 will be sold for $129 unlocked.
All these devices will be available in over 30 Latin American countries and will be sold via Amazon and Best Buy in the U.S.
