Lenovo announced their second Android smartphone at CES. Dont fall love with it.Because now it’s only China-bound.
LePhone looks like all other touchscreen device, especially on the live photos and its demo video. But it turns out it hides more originality than meets the eye.
LePhone packs a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 3.7″ AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with WVGA resolution, special gesture area just bellow the display, a 3 megapixel main camera with a VGA one for video calls, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.
LePhone’s size is impressive – it is 60mm wide and only 12mm thin. Lenovo promised to deliver a whole new experience thanks to the unique attachable keyboard, which looks more like a docking station.
The Android 2.1 OS found in the LePhone will be well customized. Its main menu is directly inspired from the iPhone’s one, while the multi-tasking follows the webOS steps and looks like the Card UI.
Lenovo’s LePhone is not the company’s first Android cellphone. They initially released the oPhone 001 a.k.a. Lenovo Mobile 01 a.k.a. Miro 01.There is no word on the LePhone worldwide availability yet, but China will get this mean machine sometime in first half of the year.
