  • Smart integration of Facebookâ„¢, Twitterâ„¢, Youtubeâ„¢, Picasaâ„¢ and Flickrâ„¢ in the address book, with realtime notification of status or content updates

Electric Pig was on-hand today at the event in London where the phone was shown off.  Here’s a little gallery to hold you over until more details emerge.  No word on when/where/with which carrier(s) it will be released, but it’s exciting news nonetheless!

    Looks to be the Android dream phone, hi-res display PLUS fast processor. Although I could not quite guess the size of the device from these photos. What would you say, bigger or smaller than, say, the Galaxy?
