CES 2010: Motorola HS1001 Home Phone

Our friend Taylor of AndroidAndMe spotted this strange looking device from Motorola (HS1001) while in Vegas the other day.   Upon closer examination, he found that it’s actually a cordless home phone running Android.

The HS1001 offers Wi-Fi capability and connects to a base unit. Look for this to hit the UK later in the year for around $150.

Specifications include:

  • DSPG Arm9 240 MHz processor
  • 2.8 inch resistive touch screen (QVGA)
  • 256 MB flah ROM / 128 MB RAM
  • MicroSD expansion slot
  • Android 1.6

Does a unit like this appeal to you at all?  What if your contacts were stored in the cloud and had some other Google features?

    You won't find Android 2.1 with this though, since it runs only on Android 1.6 while featuring a 2.8" touchscreen display with a virtual keypad and Wi-Fi connectivity. Unfortunately, there is no Marketplace support for the HS1001. More: http://bit.ly/motorola-hs1001-first-hand
