The Apple iPhone 3G and Android conquered the market was still in its infancy. By the time nobody would have thought that Google's OS would be an absolute times of market power and push the Domination of Cupertino a few years later from the throne would be. Well, who is sitting back on his throne and prefers other companies sued for patent generic, rather than innovation track record in the can not remain forever the number 1.At the time, a fairly small company called Saygus before the vPhone. It disappeared a short time later from the scene, but was technically the finest and the American press was jubilant, and saw the future after the iPhone already set before his eyes.
Remembers nor anyone at the Saygus vPhone?
Two years, the unit under his belt. But what now seems like a smart phone technology for beginner reads, was then the very last cry. Proud 624 MHz, however, is delivered to 806 MHz overclocked, the processor is put to paper in terms of performance, of course, mononuclear, since the first multi-core ARM processor yet been invented, and was ready for the market. Also brand new was the front camera for video conferencing, at a time when Apple was still Facetime developed behind closed doors. The only real change, fortunately, is an updated Google Android operating system.
The display has a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels, is 3.5 inches tall and has a capacitive touch input. Below this may be typical of a slider smart phone, a full QWERTY keyboard. Less interesting for the masses, but among us for the hobbyist, should be open to the bootloader, which allows the device to root and Sun aufzuspielen own mods or upgrades to the device.
Why it took so long?
Debt is Verizon. The American mobile operators, including who made headlines with the mobile data-espionage in the election of Barack Obama's presidency, commissioned the Saygus vPhone, because nothing else is in the V than Verizon. At that time the Saygus vPhone was equipped with Android 1.6, the supplier delayed the confirmation of the release and mass-market production also continues. Probably the release procedure is eventually disappeared into the file folders. In any case, the device was waved through and is now boarded the market soon. The price certainly can not be kept from that time, a concrete indication remains Saygus, and Verizon are guilty, as well as a concrete release date. But honestly? Who wants such a device is still shapeless?
