Meizu M9 to get Android 2.1

updated 10:55 am EDT, Thu April 15, 2010

Meizu plans switch from WinCE to Android

Meizu chief Jack Wong added to his company's phone plans today by confirming that the M9 should at least use Android 2.1 when it ships. The software will get a custom interface from Meizu and may support Meizu's own Mstore app portal as well as Android Market.

As a preamble to the M9, Meizu plans to release an Android 2.1 firmware build for the M8. It would be used to test Android in advance, but it's not clear if the M8 would qualify to run completely polished firmware.

Meizu is aiming for a release of the M9 in the summer, possibly later, and that it would have a major speed upgrade in store. Among the early specs are a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera and support for all three 3G network formats in the company's native China. It will likely export to other countries, in some cases unofficially.
