Red Bull Mobile goes Android in Austria

Many in the United States have had a Red Bull energy drink but did you know they have their own mobile division too? Red Bull Mobile is available in Germany Austria and they are currently selling a Huawei phone that is Android-powered. The Huawei RBM2 (aka Der Allrounder) is exclusively produced for Red Bull and looks like one slick device. German site got their hands on a demo unit and has posted their impressions.

Specs of the RBM2 include:

  • Android ‘Cupcake’ 1.5 operating system
  • 3.5 “touchscreen with a resolution of 320 × 480 resolution
  • Qualcomm MSM7200A processor with a clock frequency of 528 MHz
  • 256 MB EEPROM / 128 MB SDRAM
  • 1,500 mAh removable battery
  • microSD slot (for memory cards up to 32GB of capacity)
  • Quad band, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSPA
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • WLAN 802.11 b/g
  • Micro USB 2.0
  • 2.5mm audio jack (with 3.5mm adapter cable)
  • 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera + VGA cam on the front for video conferencing
  • Integrated GPS receiver (A-GPS)
  • Dimensions 116 × 62.5 × 13.3 mm
  • Weighing approximately 135 grams

My German is a little rusty, but it appears the phone is free with a contract agreement. The device also ships with special Red Bull applications like an augmented reality browser that displays Red Bull events and photos. Unlike some other Android phones in foreign countries, this device ships with all the Google apps including the Android Market.

I know we have some German readers out there, so what is your impression of Red Bull Mobile?

Bonus: A random video from Red Bull’s site for those who enjoy watching others break bones.

    It’s not Germany, it’s Austria. Yeah, I know it doesn’t make a difference for you guys, but it’s a different country.

        np, sorry if it sounded rough… I actually think it’s great you report on international android stuff. glad you changed it and activated my comment. have a good day! :-)

  • ttoups

    hey there,
    i think you’re mistaken. red bull mobile is an austrian mobile provider, not a german one. even though those two countries speak the german language, it’s a (little) difference ^^
    since i’m living in germany, i can’t share any experiance concerning their service … :(

  • christophersilva

    My German is just fine… I live here in Germany. I’ll keep an eye out for the Red Bull device and update you as to how it comes over here in Deutschland..

    Red Bull Mobile by the way is using the A1 (Mobilkom) Network in Austria and also some of their Shops – seems to be some kind of cooperation. I heard that they are currently talking to mobile providers all over they world to make Red Bull Mobile more international.

    That’s a sweet looking handset, but 2.5 mm is almost as bad as proprietary usb for headphones. Ugh.

  • ccflo

    Has an Iphone touch…

    I’m living in Austria and just some short information. Red Bull is using A1 (the biggest provider here) network and so they aren’t a real provider. Their special offer is to watch the RebBull Events on your phone (live and on demand) …. And the contracts are quit cheap, as all the mobile contracts in Austria (10-20 € per month)

    256 MB EEPROM / 128 MB SDRAM

    Pleeeease tell me they are kidding. This is even worse than G1/Dream.
    But reading the article it looks like this is serious. 70MB free on the device.
    Well bye bye 2.0.

    And what about the RAM? I guess this is cut down by radio/baseband chip/whatever. So I really doubt it has 96MB left for the OS. And looking on my Magic there isn’t much left of this already.
    Just wondering if I will be able to start an applications on that thing XD

    Reading your 7 suggestions article yesterday, and then looking at this device … well … fail.

    Also I have a very bad feeling I have to code for this device…
