Gupp Phreedom smartphone

Malaysia may not be known for high technology, but a startup firm from the country is preparing its first smartphone. Gupp's upcoming Phreedom should be similar to the Palm Treo or the Motorola Q, sporting a full QWERTY keyboard, a 2.5-inch QVGA screen, and extensive wireless in the form of 802.11b/g/i. Perhaps most useful may be its "VoWiFi" functions, which will let users save on phone bills by switching to VoIP calls when possible. The phone normally uses "double tri-band" GSM: 850/1,800/1,900 or 900/1,800/1,900MHz. Inside the Phreedom will be running Mobile Linux 2.6 on a 312MHz Intel processor, storing content on 320MB of combined RAM and flash memory. The Phreedom should launch in unspecified regions starting in the second quarter.
