Lumigon T1 Android smartphone announced
Danish mobile-makers get in on the Android phone action
Lumigon has unveiled its T1 smartphone which is powered by Google's Android operating system and works as an universal remote.
Shown off at an international gala show in Copenhagen, the T1 sports a 3.5-inch TFT 480x800 resolution touchscreen made of glass surrounded by a metal frame.
Powered by a 800MHz Freescale i MX515 application processor and an optional Qualcomm HSDPA modem, Lumigon has confirmed to T3 that it will run on the Android 2.2 OS.
On the multimedia front, the T1 has a HDMI dock and uses Bang & Olufsen ICEpower technology to power audio and speaker amplifiers, which does sound quite impressive.
Of course the biggest party trick is that it doubles as an universal remote that Lumigon says can be used with a variety of electrical appliances and has a built-in learning function to memorize commands for "virtually any device."
Lumigon has not revealed pricing for the T1 which is set to be available by the end of the year. The Lumigon S1, a T9 slider handset is expected to launch in mid-2011.
