PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While US Android users are all full of glee that they're finally getting the Samsung Galaxy S II in the United States, a far more significant Android smartphone is being developed... In China. It's faster than any other smartphone, has a beautiful and fluid user interface, top-notch hardware quality, a dual-partition setup so you can keep using the phone while it updates... And will sell for a mere $310, no contract or whatever other nonsense. Hello Xiaomi Phone.

Heard that you like icons so we put lots of icons into it to many screens so you can move them around, with both hands!

but.. does it come with a phone?

My current fancy large-screen, dual core, 3D-accelerated android phone actually has excellent call quality - they've even bothered to put in a second microphone on the back, and use it to filter out background noise when I talk. So yeah, there is still phone functionality in there, and (perhaps surprisingly) it's really quite good at it.

I have no idea how the phone in the article will fare, obviously - but it's possible to get both.
