Philips V808 Android Phone
Dutch electronics firm Philips is launching into Android phones of its own in the near future, PCOnline has confirmed today. The Chinese site says the V808 will have the familiar 480x320 touchscreen common to many Android phones and should also have a 3.2-megapixel camera with video capture. If true, the phone would focus more heavily on GPS than usual and come with newer GPS software as well as a mounting kit.
Other hardware details as well as launch information are still unknowns, but the phone should receive a deeper look in the near future. Google has vowed 18-20 Android phones this year and by extension suggests that the V808 may be released before the end of the year in at least Philips' home region of Europe. [via Engadget]
