CPhone to kill OPhone to kill iPhone, massacre?

September 22, 2009


So, there are a number of large mobile phone operators out in China. After all, it is a big place. Consider China Unicom, China Mobile and China Telecom the AT&T, Sprint and Verizon of China. China Unicom is soon to offer the iPhone, while it has long been known that China Mobile will be pushing the OPhone running on a tweaked version of Android dubbed Open Mobile System. But now, thrown into the mix, is China Telecom, who will be offering the CPhone. The CPhone runs on a version of Android tweaked by a company called Access. Each one has been labelled as the killer of the other, so with all this competition out there, who will win?

The CPhone, which is what weโ€™re predominantly interested in with this article, is an interesting looking device that has a UI which is certainly aimed more towards the Anime or cartoon-style lover. Hardware specifications on the CPhone are fairly hard to come by, but seem to include a 3.5-inch screen among the other standard options weโ€™re growing used to seeing. Focussing more on the UI, the icons are original in design and are arranged in a slightly random, higgledy-piggledy, fashion. Take a look at a couple of pictures after the jump.
