GPhone A60, an Android Handset With a 600 MHz CPU and 5MP Camera; Looking like a HTC
We’re having a look at a Chinese handset again, the GPhone A60, just as we’ve stumbled upon a Motorola OPhone device earlier today. The A60 is an Android phone running the 1.5 OS (upgradeable to any future version it seems) and using a Qualcomm 7227 CPU @ 600 MHz to perform tasks.
GPhone A60 features a 3.2 inch TFT touchscreen display with a 320 x 480 pixels resolution and as far as connectivity is concerned, you get GSM, WCDMA and support for GSM850/900/1800/1900 and WCDMA/HSPA 850/1900/2100 MHz bands. The handset measures 116 x 12.4 x 57mm, packs a built-in camera with a 5 megapixel resolution and autofocus.
USB 2.0 is also on the specs list, together with 256MB Flash memory and 256MB RAM. The 120 grams device is quite light and it tends to feel plasticky in the hands of the user. The design might remember some of you of HTC G2 and, as you can see there’s also a 3.5mm audio jack in the mix, on the upper side.
The front button layout (beneath the screen) is take from HTC Hero, virtual touch function keys included. Handwriting input and Chinese stroke are supported and there’s even some widget action on screen, complete with weather, a cool clock and other such UI elements. For a reasonable price, this Chinese device could be a great HTC replacement.
