Lumigon Android phones get 720p video, 800MHz CPU

Previously unknown Danish phone maker Lumigon on Monday introduced three new handsets at Mobile World Congress on Monday, two of which will run on the Android 2.1 operating system. The S1 and T1 will otherwise share a Freescale processor, an FM tuner, the ability to output 720p HD video over an HDMI output and can double as universal remotes for home theater equipment. Details and photos of the third handset, to be called the E1, are scarce, but it is said to get a unique navigation system and shape.

The handsets are said to have been developed over two years and will include Lumigon's P-GUI laid over Android 2.1. Processing is handled by an 800MHz ARM Cortex-A8 chip in all models. The phones use capacitive touchscreens of unknown sizes. At least the T1 and S1 will have assisted GPS capability, and both get an FM transmitter in addition to an FM receiver. Wi-Fi, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with flash and a 3.5mm audio jack round out the features.

The fashion-oriented phones will be made of steel, aluminum and scratch-resistant glass. An optional Bluetooth keyboard will allow users to browse the net through the handset while it's connected to their TVs.

Lumigon will launch the T1 at the start of this spring, while the S1 is due for a later spring release in the Nordic market and certain unnamed European countries. The E1 is promised for later this year. Pricing has not been defined. [via Engadget]
