Lenovo's Android for China

Most Americans may associate Lenovo with their office printer, or maybe those who own an IBM laptop may know them as a computer manufacturer. Lenovo has its hands in a lot of cookie jars, and today everyone is talking about their new Android phone which apparently makes the HTC’s G1 look like “a first-year design student’s mid-term project.” After having a look, I must admit she is a beauty.

Although this handset is much more attractive than the G1 – and maybe it’s just my untrained eye – but it looks like an iPhone to me, except with a different button on the bottom. Apparently, this phone is nothing more than an early version of the “Ophone”, a handset designed to comply to China Mobile’s Open Mobile System that combines Android’s core with integration and support from the carrier’s own TD-SCDMA 3G network. For those of you who have found “love at first sight” with Lenovo’s new phone are going to be in for heartbreak – this baby will never see the light of day stateside.
