$149 Android Powered iphone4-clone, Sinoteck H2000 Hero

Posted by – April 8, 2011

Why pay $800 for an iPhone (or $199 on 2-year $2000 contract), when you can buy an Android version for $149 and not have to pay anything further, other that perhaps a pre-paid plan. This one uses the Mediatek ARM9 460Mhz with DSP, runs Android Froyo. You can watch my Mediatek video from Mobile World Congress, they are one of the leaders in making these lowest cost ARM SoC solutions for Android smartphones, their next generation adds support for 3G networks. This $149 Sinoteck H2000 Hero comes with a 3.5″ HVGA capacitive touch screen, excellent Android implementation by Mediatek, that one is GPRS/GSM only though, Sinoteck also sells a Qualcomm MSM7200A based version for 3G/WCDMA support but for an additional $50.

Here are their infos from Sinoteck International (HK)Co.,Limited. (http://www.bysino.net/):

The fair is awesome. I found a lot of very interesting cheap Android smartphones and tablets. Look forward to my uploads coming up.
