IDEOS is priced between US$100 and US$200, depending on the market, and comes with Android 2.2 pre-installed.
Redefines the “entry-level” concept by combining high-quality hardware and software with a low price point.
Will be released in a number of countries across Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, and Latin America.
Provides a variety of ways to access the internet, as it boasts downlink speeds of more than 7.2Mb/s, offers WCDMA + WiFi dual network support, and offers ubiquitous mobile broadband services.
Doubles as a WiFi router for up to eight devices at a time, making IDEOS an all-in-one solution for a range of wireless connectivity options.
Available in black, yellow, blue, and purple.
Supports functions such as voice dialing, voice navigation, and the ability to run applications off the SD card. With more than 70,000 applications available in the Android Market, IDEOS provides a wide range of communication, entertainment, and office and financial management applications.
The name “IDEOS” embodies creativity and inspiration: the “ID” represents the industrial design-centric hardware platform, the “OS” represents the operating system as the core software platform, and the “E” symbolizes the evolution toward the mobile internet.
