Here's the YotaPhone, the first dual-mode Android phone that works on LCD and E Ink at the same time on each side of the phone. Yota has developed a few customizations and a new SDK to either just send screenshots of anything that's on Android over to E Ink or to also enable interactivity on the E Ink side, such as flipping pages with their swipe gestures at the capacitive bottom that is on each side of the device. Expected delivery is to be between Q2 and Q3 2013, Yota Devices is a Russian company but the market for this dual mode E Ink and LCD phone can be worldwide.
ZTE's new 1080p Android phone.
Sony's new 1080p phone.
Nokia just launched the cheapest Windows Phone 8 device on the market yet. It's Qualcomm S4 (I guess S4 Play Cortex-A5), 3.8" WVGA, HSPA+, NFC, Bluetooth and a ton of other features.
Here's probably the top latest Nokia Windows Phone.
Here's my first playing around with the $599 Microsoft Surface with Touch Keyboard and other new Windows RT devices from Dell, Asus and Lenovo that are being released to the market.
I think the $599 is a bit expensive, and I'd like a full Chrome browser on RT, I'd like remote access to all x86 apps streamed over a cloud based x86 app hosting service, I'd like Google Search and Google Maps instead of Bing Search and Bing Maps, but otherwise I think the Surface is pretty cool! Lenovo also shows a pretty impressive 11.6" Windows RT laptop, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11, but at $799 it's quite expensive.
