Specs for customizable Bluebird BM180 revealed; buyers can select Android or Windows Phone platform
posted by Alan F. / Jan 18, 2014, 3:38 PM
Other options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE and HSPA+ connectivity, a barcode scanner and a card reader. An 8MP camera on back is standard as is an HD front facing shooter and a 32GB microSD slot. A dual core Cortex A-15 processor is under the hood, and as we said, buyers can choose between Windows Phone 8 and Android 4.2.2.
The phone is coming out of Korea, and the company's press release indicates that it will be purchased by major retailers in the U.S. for use by employees. It seems that the device is being produced for business use, not consumers.

Handling 1080p when booting in Windows won't be a problem.

Do you realize what you said you idiot chromecast is made by who for people who use what platform? why would it work with windows? Get over your self and stay off articles about windows and windows phone. Why are you going to be a nazi and force everyone to choose one platform or let it die last time I checked I live in country where I can choose what platform I want to use not one or none. Think and about that when you buy your next ios or android device. Since you don't like windows so much you can sent us your Xbox 360 or one / playstation 3 or 4/ windows laptop or desktop we will be happy to take it off your hands and send you a kendle fire.

Cortex A15 dual core, the Nexus 10 handles 1600 x 2560 with ease. Besides that, it's the GPU that matters when it comes to pixels, and hopefully they will use a good GPU, probably a PowerVR something, with any luck it will be an Exynos 5 dual core with a Mali 604 or something similar.

it is dual core, it is not really about the chipset but the architecture and in this case ARM. Windows was not about supporting just a single chipset with the update of GDR3, but supporting quad core vs dual core. It is why my pc can run AMD or Intel or.....as long as the x86 is there. For this one, it is ARM

Agree. If there is such an option, I'll get HTC one with 8mp/13mp normal camera. Also, for an average customer, with option, one can control the cost also.

This is a nice idea, and I wish it was available to consumers. Assuming money was not a major factor for me (at some point), I would go for the following specs: 2GB RAM, 8GB native storage, 720 x 1280 screen, 4500 mAh battery, WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, everything else as standard... I'm just not entirely sure whether I would go for Windows Phone 8 or Android 4.2.2.

I ain't makin' up my mind based on one person's recommendation, nor purely on anyone else's recommendations. I once liked what I saw in Windows Phone, and then Microsoft started the bashing campaigns, which, although they were a little entertaining and a bit convincing, were the wrong message to be sending. I watched what they did to Windows 8 for PC's, and I was startled at how awful they are to work on. My father runs a PC repair business of his own, and I saw how difficult Windows 8 is for him to have to work on. It is a nightmare for the PC world. It will only serve to push us into the post-PC environment faster. I do not like it when a company sees it in its own best interest to destroy a part of its own business in order to prop up another one without giving consumers the dignity of admitting to and letting us know that they are willfully cutting off that part of their business to prop up the other. It is deceptive. It is hypocritical. It hurts people who still depend on PC's and think that they are secure in buying another one. Microsoft is engaging in this type of behavior, and I don't like it. I liked Windows Phone for its uniqueness, its new and upcoming image, and its fluidity on mediocre hardware; however, it is not as open, pliable, and tweakable as Android (granted Android is not what I would consider the model of openness either - Symbian was much more open, more pliable, and more tweakable for me). I am torn between WP and Android because WP is more neat looking, and different from a lot of what else is out there, but the warning signs just about drive me to Android.
