The altek Leo is a 14MP camera with a smartphone added
Most of today's touchscreeen smartphones look like cellphones with a small lens added to the back of the device. The altek Leo reverses this concept as it looks like it's 14MP camera has a smartphone added to it. Speculation is that the Leo (not to be confused with the HTC model that eventually became the HD2) will be Android powered considering the home, back and menu buttons. Still, not much is known about the phone's specs. What is known is that the handset supports HSDPA radio bands and has a 14MP CCD with 3X optical zoom. This could be the one smartphone that a professional photographer would use for his photographic work. The unit also handles HD video capture at 720p. The company plans to introduce Leo at the CommunicAsia show this month in Singapore. Wi-Fi enabled, Leo can upload pictures and video directly to social networking sites. Alex Hsia, president and CEO of altek says both users and carriers win when smartphones can deliver superior images. He said,  "Phones able to capture high definition, high quality images and video are a win‐win for users as well as telecommunication service providers, as the latter can anticipate rising bandwidth usage rates when users share images remotely."

Altek is known for making high res camera phones and this one I think has the ground breaking effect since most of high res camera phone is up to 12.2 MP only. It is definitely a plus that this phone is capable of doing 3G and WiFi!!

It's about time a company decides to put an actual camera on a phone.

That phone is impressive that has to be brushed aluminum build quality on a level of its own with 14mp camera hopefully launching with 2.2 on top of it and 1.2ghz dual core processor I'd buy it.
