#CES 2010: Lenovo LePhone with Android announced

Lenovo, one of the world’s largest PC makers, has announced its first Android phone at CES 2010. Dubbed the Lenovo LePhone (“Le” means “happiness” in Chinese), the new handset looks pretty cool and comes with many high-end features that make it almost similar to the Google Nexus One.

The LePhone has a 3.7 inch WVGA touchscreen display (AMOLED, apparently), 1GHz Snapdragon processor, WCDMA connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3MP camera and MicroSD card support.

Running Android 2.0, the Lenovo LePhone has a customized users interface with widgets that reminds me of Palm’s WebOS.

The handset also has a touch-sensitive area below the display, and it can magnetically connect to various peripherals, like this QWERTY keyboard:

Lenovo, which recently announced the Skylight smartbook for AT&T,  says that its LePhone will be first available in China (sometime later this year). The company is also exploring the possibilities of launching the handset via multiple carriers around the world, so we might see the LePhone in the US and Europe, too.

    Still, this is yet another interesting Android handset in a year of many interesting Android handsets. While it's not planned for release outside of China just yet, it's certainly a handset to keep an eye on from the Chinese company making baby steps into the mobile market
