Phaeton 2″ Android Watch Doubles as a Smartphone

Do you recall that Android watch that Velocity Micro showed off at CES 2011? That one never made it to the market, but a similar device showed up at CES this year. Charbax found it in the Shenzhen Phaeton booth.

While it looks like a watch, this is really a 2" smartphone that you strap to your wrist. It's running Android v2.2 Froyo on a MTK6516 CPU (480MHz+280MHz) and it has Wifi, a microSD card slot, speaker/mike, and even a SIM card slot that works with the GPRS chip. There's also a camera, and you can take pictures secret agent style.

The screen has a resolution of 320×240, and the touchscreen is capacitive. Standby battery life is expected to be about a week, with active use estimated to be round 36 hours. The price is just $200 for bulk orders, minimum order quantity of 500.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
