Qigi unveils Android-powered i6 smartphone

Another Android-powered smartphone will soon become available. The latest is the i6 from Chinese manufacturer Qigi. The i6 will feature a 2.8-inch display and have a 2-megapixel camera, integrated GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a microSD card slot. Additionally, the i6 will be powered by a Marvell Monohans 624MHz processor. Unfortunately it will not have any 3G support, instead it will be limited to quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE.

It will also be available in two models, one being powered by Android and the other by Windows Mobile 6.1. Overall, the i6, seems to be a nice looking handset. Of course, without pointing out the obvious, the i6 appears to be lacking a QWERTY keyboard, and as we already know, Android does not offer a virtual keyboard as of yet. So, as nice as it may look, you may be better off with the Windows Mobile 6.1 version for the time being.
