Is it a smartphone? Is it a laptop? T-Mobile’s exclusive Ameo device blurs the form factor design lines
T-Mobile has just announced it will launch the Ameo smartphone device in March on its Web’nWalk price plan. Manufactured by HTC, the Ameo looks more like a mini-laptop than a mobile phone, sporting a massive five-inch VGA resolution touchscreen and a detachable QWERTY keyboard.
T-Mobile hasn’t confirmed its feature set, but if the rumours are true the Ameo’s specifications make it one of the most powerful smartphones on the planet. Read them and weep: it’s HSDPA enabled, has built-in Wi-Fi, quad-band capabilities, Bluetooth, a Windows Mobile OS, three-megapixel camera and a VGA front loaded lens for video calling/conference plus an embedded GPS receiver for sat nav shenanigans.
T-Mobile has yet to announce pricing but as ever Mobile Choice will keep you posted.
