SciPhone N12 with Android

China's SciPhone has recently announced the future release of its N12 handset which, most notably, will ship with Google's open-source Android operating system, according to a report. One of the first Android phones from a small manufacturer, its processing power comes courtesy of a relatively powerful 624MHz Marvell Monahands CPU sitting in a Qualcomm MSM6246 chipset. The quad-band GSM device has 3G WCDMA data network support and built-in Wi-Fi, GPS and CMMB TV support.

Users interface via the 3.2-inch touchscreen and its virtual keyboard, but like in most other Android phones, an integrated trackball is also present for navigation. Users can capture still images and video via the built-in 3.2-megapixel camera. Rounding out the known specs is Bluetooth compatibility.

The SciPhone N12 will be available on June 25th, priced at the equivalent of about $234. [via PMPToday]
