While many of you may not have heard of the Geeksphone One when it was announced in 2009, it was the first European brand to launch an Android Smartphone to the mass market and has quite a following among its users. Since that time Geeksphone has not released any other device but the Geeksphone Zero is now on the horizon and pre-orders are suggested to be taking place within the next 2-weeks. When it comes to specs they are a little underwhelming when compared to newer devices but still, capable:
- Wi-Fi b/g
- 5 MP Camera
- 512MB of RAM
- AMD Z430 GPU 256MB
- Qualcomm 600 Mhz MSM762
- 3.2 Inch HVGA LED Multi-touch
- Quad-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE (850/900/1800/1900MHz), dual-band UMTS / HSPA (2100/850MHz)
Again, not the most impressive specs but considering the device will cost you only €189 unlocked and only €168 if you were a previous Geeksphone One owner it's not all that bad of a deal. Especially if you're only looking for an entry level device -- a market that is growing. [Android-France]
