Are you ready for an Android-powered home phone? While wondering the floor of tonight’s Pepcom event, I came across the Motorola HS1001.
This gadget is basically a cordless phone that has been upgraded to support Android. The device is slated to be one of the first Android-powered home phones. The HS1001 has dual WiFi technology to connect to its base station and a home WiFi network.
Preliminary specs include:
- DSPG Arm9 240 Mhz processor
- 2.8 inch resistive touch screen (QVGA)
- 256 MB flah ROM / 128 MB RAM
- MicroSD expansion slot
- Powered by stock Android 1.6 (no Motoblur)
Motorola expects to launch the phone in the UK first, followed by a Q2 2010 United States release date. The estimated retail price is $149.
