Lenovo Android phone: Lephone


During last week 2010 CES show, Lenovo introduced the Lephone, an Android-based handset. The particularity of this handset is that it is a fully touchscreen phone, to which you can attach as an accessory a full QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard is arranged in a spheric shape, and its hard to tell how practical it is going to be without getting a hand on it.

The Lephone runs a modified version of Android OS, notably known as “Ophone” on a 3.7 inch screen. The core processor is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, with a 3 megapixels camera, 3G, Wi-Fi capabilities, A-GPS, 3.5 mm headset jack and a proprietary 9 pin connector for the external keyboard.

As suspected, since the Lephone runs on Ophone, China’s mobile modified version of Android, it will only be available to the chinese market. This has also been confirmed by Lenovo who has no plans of bringing the device to the US.
