Surging the desirability factor up to underpant-threatening levels of excitement is Lenovo’s new stunning new Lephone handset.
A truly wondrous piece of super-shiny design, the Android handset packs a Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and comes with a snap-on docking station with a full QWERTY keyboard. It looks nice. Very nice.
The specs look equally loveable too, with the Lephone sporting a generous 3.7-inch 480 x 800 touchscreen with a second touch panel underneath, shunning old school physical buttons for a trendy gesture panel a la Palm Pre.
The phone also squeezes in twin cameras; a 3-megapixel unit on the back, and a front-facing camera for video calls, backed by WCDMA radio, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS, with the whole thing purring along on a snappy-looking bespoke UI.
The whole package measures up at 12mm thick and 60mm wide, and we’d be stepping over infirm grandmothers to get at this thing, except that so far there’s only a release scheduled for the Chinese market in the first half of 2010.
