ImCoSys Linux Smartphone
With Linux penetrating the marketplace so pervasively, it comes as no surprise that even the ubiquitous mobile phone now runs a variation of the popular OS. The latest mobile device to run Linux is this smartphone from ImCoSys, a small Swiss company that started up in 2005.
Sporting features like quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900), Bluetooth 1.2, EDGE, Wi-Fi (802.11b), and GPS, the phone has the necessary equipment to be competitive in the marketplace. A 200MHz TI OMAP 730 processor provides the necessary computational power, with 64MB ROM/64MB RAM for memory and a QVGA touchscreen LCD to handle input duties. An oddball feature that’s included is RS-232, which certainly seems strange in these days of USB dominance.
Available this summer for approximately $350 USD.
