Engadget reports Lenovo introduced the LePhone. This is an Qualcomm Snapdragon based phone with Google's Android OS, it will only be released in China though.
Lenovo has just announced the LePhone for the Chinese WCDMA market, available in May this year. Notable features include a vibrant 3.7-inch 800x480 capacitive touchscreen (not OLED, sadly), 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon, 3.5mm headphone jack, a camera on both the front and back (3 megapixels for the latter), A-GPS, WiFi (but no WAPI, strangely), removable battery and a proprietary 9-pin dock connector. Lovers of physical keyboards may be interested in the optional external keyboard (pictured in gallery) -- the way the phone snaps onto it is very similar to the IdeaPad U1 Hybrid's.
