The Ideos is powered by a 528 MHz processor, and features a 2.8" screen. These specs aren't impressive when compared to other new Android devices, but the price point, Android 2.2 functionality, and attractive form will certainly draw some buyers.
The Ideos is part of an effort by carriers to offer strong entry level Android smartphones in their holiday lineup, like Verizon's Motorola Citrus, and Sprint's Sanyo Zio. This will convert new smartphone users and lock in more expensive contracts during the generous season. We think it will work beautifully.
