Soon after the successful first sale of the Micromax In Note 1, the Indian manufacturer's second offering, the Micromax In 1B was supposed to go on its first sale today, also on Flipkart. However, as eager customers waited for the clock to strike 12PM, Micromax spoiled the party as the company cancelled the Micromax In 1B sale at the very last moment saying there were issues with the logistics.
