Hands on E28s Android-Device

Postby plusminus » Tue Feb 12, 2008 10:29 pm

Hello Community,

the Chinese device manufacturer E28 is showing a fully running Android Device on the Mobile World Congress 2008 in Barcelona. The following video shows Michael Chu (E28's Vice President of Marketing) using the Touch-Functionality of the a cute device, which seems to be working very well. He is browsing Google Maps (both, Street-View and even Satellite-View live), panning through the Calllog and even shows the Android SDK API Colored 3D Cube Demo using the OpenGL ES-Functionality of the Android Platform.

He says that the device is capable of making common GSM Phonecalls, GPRS Internet Connectivity, .
The hardware is also not the newest but everything he does looks really responsive. RAM and Flash are both said to be only 64 MB, the CPU is a OMAP730 - 200 Mhz ARM926EJ-S - simply amazing.



So for now E28 has probably best integrated Android Device released up to now.

Damn! It's interesting when they'll (device designers) show black color devices without hardware keyboard and other buttons. Only touch screen and a Power button and aa 640x480 resolution :-D

Yes, it looks really good, but the screen is damn small. One probably won't recognize the advantages a touchscreen brings into daily usage.
In my opinion a ~320x240 (Standard PDA-Screen-size) is a minimum for using a touchscreen the way it should be used. Unfortunately I have not yet seen any Software-Keyboard that could make an AndroidDevice get rid of the HW-Keys..
