the original LePhone over here in les States, but the successor to Lenovo's smartphone is already in the works. In a curious bit of software engineering, it looks like the phone can run Android and Windows Phone 7 in a dual-boot configuration. This isn't any sort of super feat - modders do this sort of thing for kicks all the time - but it's odd to see two competing platforms running on the same hardware even before an official release.
have confirmed that, despite some rival Android handsets seeing their Chinese launch delayed, they plan to push ahead with the Lenovo Lephone launch there nonetheless. Of interest to the rest of us, however, is confirmation that the Lephone will also see an overseas launch later in 2010. The Lephone was announced at CES 2010 earlier this month, and is a touchscreen smartphone running Android on a Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon processor. While normally it's a candybar format device, Lenovo have also been showing the Lephone off with a snap-on clamshell keyboard/case which should aid text-entry. No word on exact pricing, Chinese availability or which countries Lenovo plan to ship the Lephone to next. [gallery id="4801"]
recently unveiled at CES an Android-powered smartphone named Lephone. This new Android handset is heading to China, and comes with its own customized build of the Android OS. Many of you have been following other devices, like the Google Nexus One for example, more then anything else. So Lenovo’s Lephone isn't probably one of the Android handsets on your list, especially when is going to China, and there's no word from Lenovo if this device will make it to other countries. As you can see on the image above, the Snap-on accessory QWERTY keyboard has a centrally-positioned D-pad.

Lenovo. The new Android handset will have Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and apparently will be named the Lenovo Lephone. The Lenovo Lephone has a 3.7-inch 480 x 800 touchscreen and it seems like it'll have a second touch panel underneath, instead of physical controls. The second touch panel has been custom-coded by Lenovo and responds to gestures. One of the accessories for this handset will be a docking station with a hardware QWERTY keyboard. The Android Lephone device comes with twin cameras; a 3-megapixel unit on the back, and a front-facing camera for video calls, a WCDMA radio, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. All these goodies are packed into a device measuring 12mm thick and 60mm wide. The Chinese market should see this handset arrive sometime in the first half of 2010. [Via SlashGear]
Honeycomb debuts, which could mean waiting until Summer 2011 before a slate from the company goes on sale. CEO Rory Read told PC Mag "I don't believe 'Froyo' is the right base to have a fully functioning pad," with the company instead waiting for the tablet-centric release Google has promised is in the pipeline. Meanwhile the company's LePhone isn't apparently set for a US debut for another two years, potentially, with Lenovo looking to further grow their smartphone share in China before they consider broader availability.
