altek A14 LEO, an Android phone with a 14MP camera, is to be released this month
According to DigiTimes, the altek A14 LEO, which happens to be a smartphone powered by Android with a 14MP camera, 3x optical zoom, a Xenon flash and a long list of other camera-related goodies, is to be released this month in China and Taiwan.

Its release in the two countries on the either side of the Taiwan Strait is to be followed by the device's launch in some emerging markets, including India and Russia, in Q2 of 2011.

This phone will offer a 3.2-inch capacitive screen with a 480 x 800 resolution and will be powered by Eclair.

There is no word whether this camera phone will grace the States, but you can still check the pictures we took during our tests with this handset.

Eldar claimed that it was crap when he played with one. Said that the camera quality wasn't even that good.

I have one of these Altec Leo camera phones I bought from Ebay Taiwan $365.00 A few weeks ago no longer available I also have Apple and Galaxy S 5 Meg camera phones as color matching is my job and beleive me the Leo Camera makes the others look like CRAP the color on the photo is really true to life the best.On the downside you cant download apps from any source and I have been trying to download the ones that give an R.G.B.reading of a color on the screen without actually taking the shot. The phone has problems with connecting, And for some unexplained reason My bank account number comes up as my phone number no money in there though.And the people I bought it from in Taiwan are not responding to my Emails But if they sort out the phone and App side of things I will buy more Michael
