Windroid Phone Runs Windows Mobile + Android

Can’t decide what sort of a smartphone to buy? The WinDroid is the perfect phone for you indecisive folks out there.

The phone ships with the none-too-thrilling Android 1.6 OS (but can be upgraded to 2.1 – voiding its warranty, though). The Windows side of the house runs Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro. The touchscreen phone is capable of dual-booting between Windows Mobile and Android OS. Under the hood of this unusual phone is a speedy Marvell PXA310 CPU, running at 624MHz. It’s an unlocked quad-band GSM phone, meaning you can use it pretty much anywhere on the planet too.

The screen’s meager 240×400 resolution may have you going a little crosseyed if you’re used to today’s super-sharp displays. And despite its rather hefty 0.55″ thick profile, there’s no keyboard from what I can tell. At least there’s GPS capability, so you can use Google Maps for navigation. Sure, the hardware doesn’t sound too thrilling, but can your phone do this?

Nope? Didn’t think so. You can get your hands on the WinDroid phone over at Chinavasion for $239 (USD). If you’re looking for a single device that can run all the Microsoft and Google apps, it’s definitely one to check out. Apple fanboys and girls, you’re out of luck. Maybe next year ChinaVasion will offer up an iPhoWinDroid.
