Android 2.1 powered Lenovo LePhone on its way to China - read the full textA few days ago Lenovo announced their second Android smartphone at CES. It runs on Android 2.1 and today we have a lot of official pictures for you to enjoy. But don't hurry falling in love with it - for now it's only China-bound.

Global market to 3rd world countries?

Would anyone carry the "dock" around just to type?

Android phone without the market? Isn't that a bit like a bike without wheels?

Rest assured this device will be running on GSM flatform as well as CDMA network since Lenovo has a global market.

Adobe Flash or a camera flash?

None of those are in the iPhone either.

Or maybe you mean the iphone's flashiness, which is useless in anyway.

Hey wait, i just noticed something about the mechanics of the phone. It's not a slide out keyboard, it's a box hinge like on them make-up things my girlfriends has, so how does the screen come to the inside when you open it? My guess would be that when you open the phone you can twist the screen 360 degrees. Still it's kinda awkward have to turn the screen everytime you need to do something, to many physical moment. I am just saying if that's the case. If anyone else figured out how the screen can come to the inside since it's not a slide out, thankful for answers.

I just checked online. You can order this phone from China when it releases, if you want it unlocked, for like 410. But if you want with a contract in Europe or US than you gonna have to wait i guess.

The Lenovo LePhone is like a slice of cool from a cake of awesome. I hope it is available in the US sooner rather than later.
