Lenovo Debuts Android Smartphone, LePhone

At CES last week Lenovo announced an Android device for the Chinese market. The LePhone packs a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, a 3.7-inch (800x480) capacitive touchscreen, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a three megapixel camera (and an additional, forward-facing camera presumably for video conferencing), GPS and WiFi.

What's probably the neatest part about the LePhone is that Lenovo is also offering an external keyboard for those who can't bear the thought of a virtual key. It clips on like sort of a hard case but no word on if it'll offer any protection for the phone itself.

As far as price, release and carrier goes, we're all still in the dark but according to Engadget, it's hitting China first. Hopefully we'll hear more details soon.

  • The more the merrier! Personally I'm happy to see android getting so much attention :)
  • correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn't china use a funky CDMA variant? meaning if it comes to the US at all, it'll be sprint/verizon only...
  • GEE! More of the same stuff. I wonder what kind of spin the marketing guru's will come up with.
