Lenovo lephone

This is interesting — Lenovo’s LePhone is the PC company’s first foray into the handheld market, and its being launched and targeted at China first instead of Europe and North America. The device, which features an impressive 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, runs on a custom version of the Android 2.1 OS. Other specs include a 1GHz “Snapdragon” processor, GPS, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 3MP camera. Most curious is the ability to attach an external keyboard that gives physical keys to the touchscreen device. With a slim profile and unique features (and a weird name), this is something to look out for later down the road.

The LePhone will be available in China starting in May, with other markets to follow.
