Neonode releases N2, claims iPhone merely "follows"

Neonode N2 Introduced

Neonode stirred up controversy at the 3GSM expo this morning by previewing the N2. The Swedish firm openly claims that the iPhone is merely "following the lead" already set by the former's touchscreen N1 and says its N2 improves on the formula. Although much smaller than the Apple device at three inches long, the N2 still sports a full 2-inch touchscreen interface and a 2-megapixel camera. The diminutive stature allows control with only one hand, Neonode points out. Multimedia tools such as MPEG-4 video recording and playback for MP3, WMA, and WAV songs are preloaded. A miniSD card slot provides storage space.

Its formal launch is targeted for Spring, with an initial release due in Europe. The presence of a quad-band GSM transmitter will allow the device to roam in North America and may ultimately lead to its release on the continent at a later date. Click through for a profile shot.

    People just don't get it

    There is no other phone like the iPhone. Number one reason is it's the only phone that runs OS X. There won't be a need for iPhone version 2 because it will only need an OS upgrade not new hardware.
