Hey hey! Even though Google and China are having a little standoff, with Google even going as far as delaying 2 Android phones in China, it looks like the Lenovo LePhone will carry on business as usual. It's set to release in May of this year on China Mobile, China Telecom, & China Unicom--by our count, that's going to be a lot of potential users.
If you need a refresher, the Lenovo LePhone packs a 3.7 inch 480x800 touchscreen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and a 3MP camera. The picture above shows the potentially maddening optional keyboard but it seems like the LePhone might actually be an attractive device. Worldwide releases will follow the China launch later in the year so we'll see if Lenovo can do some damage in the smartphone space.
