Lenovo recently announced a new smartphone called LePhone specifically for the Chinese WCDMA market. It has got a 3.7-inch 480x800-pixel resolution display and a completely touch-based interface for navigation, no physical buttons have been added to the design. im not entirely sure thats a good idea, but it does have an interesting proprietary 9-pin dock connector that lets you latch on an optional external keyboard.It also boasts a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 3.5mm headset jack, 3G data, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, plus a 3.0-megapixel camera and camcorder. The LePhone runs a specially customized version of Google's Android operating system, which Lenovo is apparently calling the OPhone. It has integrated Twitter and Facebook applications. A representative from Lenovo has said that it has no plans to release it in the U.S. market or any other countries but China.
