    Elektrobit's Android Phone Tailored for Security; Could Win Ugliest Android Award


    A company call Elektrobit is designing what they call their Specialized Device Platform for Android smartphones. The purpose is to tailor make Android smartphones for public safety, security and defense industry markets. Their "current" model sports the following features:
    • Froyo
    • 1GHz single-core OMAP3
    • WVGA capacitive touchscreen (either 4-, or 4.3-inch)
    • 5 megapixel camera, VGA front-facing camera
    • WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS with quad-band GSM, tri-band UMTS / HSDPA and CDMA2K / EVDO support

    These specs are a bit "lack-luster," but Elektrobit is working on a Gingerbread/LTE model as well, and more powerful options next year. It would be convenient to utilize one of these Androids in the field if you were in one of these industries, but the design could easily win an "Ugliest Android" contest if there were such a thing. Ultimately, law enforcement, protection and military arenas don't need it to be "pretty", so the idea of it is pretty impressive nonetheless. What do you guys think?

    It does look.....different. And military-like.

    If it serves a purpose, so be it.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    I feel like this phone should have been in a movie made in the 80's about what phones would look like now, make sense??? Haha
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)
