Budget smartphones weren’t invented yesterday, but they usually come from Asia, so it’s kind of strange to see one made in USA. Meet the Verykool s700, a device made by US company InfoSonic. The firm is based in San Diego, California and here’s what the product looks like:
It has OK specs, that include a 3.5 inch display, 2GB of storage, a 2 megapixel camera at the back and VGA cam upfront, plus the usual microUSB port. Sadly, it runs Android 2.2, not even Gingerbread, which is kind of outdated. No other details were released so far on the s700, so you may have to do with knowing that it comes with a microSD card slot, 1400 mAh battery and… that’s about it. I wonder how cheap does “budget” mean in this case.
InfoSonic is probably preparing to offer this device free on contract or for as low as $100 off contract, who knows? Cricket Wireless is speculated as an early adopter of this handset, but you’ll find more details on verykool.net, if you’re interested.
