Kodak's very first smartphone (IM5) now available to buy in Europe

Kodak's very first smartphone (IM5) now available to buy in Europe
Announced in January at CES 2015, the world's first Kodak smartphone is now available to buy, though not in the UK, where it was initially expected to be released.

Called Kodak IM5, the handset can be purchased in the Netherlands, where it's offered for €280 ($315) off contract, or for free with contracts on various carriers.

Manufactured for Kodak by UK-based Bullitt Group (which also makes rugged CAT smartphones), the IM5 runs Android KitKat, but it should be updated to Lollipop at some point. The new handset comes with a simplified Kodak UI, being aimed at customers who are looking for a "smartphone that is easier to use than what they are currently using."

The Kodak IM5 sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera, and a "unique image management software". Other features include an octa-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2100 mAh battery.

Back in January, Kodak said that the IM5 would be available globally, so we're probably going to see it soon in other markets. Would you buy one?
