Smartphone developer Innocomm Technology might be small when compared to players like HTC and Motorola, but their plans for Android are just as big. Around the middle of the year, the handset maker plans to drop their first of many Android-based handsets. Called the Shark, Iccocomm’s smartphone will be a high-end device with a considerably lower cost.
Innocomm’s hopes are that wireless providers might be able to offer their handsets free with contacts. Our hopes are that this happens!
Tentative specs include a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 8-megapixel camera with flash, GPS, 3G, HSPA, Wifi, and Bluetooth. The Shark will be also have a 3.5mm headset jack, a microSD card slot, and mini-USB connection. Also getting squeezed in will be an analog TV tuner with future versions expected to offer a digital tuner.
Other handsets in the Inncomm pipeline are the Shadow, which features a 4.3-inch screen, the Gemini, and Scorpion. Previously, the company showed their Skate handset off at 2009’s MWC which sports “the World’s smallest 2.8″ smartphone based on the Android OS.” As of right now, the Skate has been pushed back due to changing the chipset inside.
Innocomm has no plans to work with any other mobile platforms, even the recently unveiled Windows Phone 7. “Windows is nice, but it can’t beat the price on Android. It’s free and the Google brand is already well known. Android is the only OS we’re working on.”
