LePhone Prepared for Battle Against the iPhone in China
It's been on the horizon for quite some time, but this month, Lenovo's sophisticated smartphone, LePhone, will officially begin to duke it out in China against the iPhone, which hasn't been on the market very long in the world's most populous nation. But according to Liu Chuanzhi, chairman of Lenovo Group, "I am convinced that Lenovo's latest smartphone, LePhone, will be a success in the Chinese market."
China Daily is hyping the Chinese arrival of LePhone as the smartphone that could truly blow the iPhone out of the water. Evidence given to support such suggestions includes the fact that many prominent service and content suppliers are showing strong support for the LePhone. Such supportive groups include Baidu Inc, Alibaba Group and Tencent Inc.
The first generation LePhone is based on Google Inc's Android operating system and runs on the 3G standard used by China Unicom. China Daily says the device will be in stores beginning May 17th. Lenovo's chief says that his company is also developing "several" versions of LePhone - two of which will be for China's other 3G standards - CDMA2000 by China Telecom and TD-SCDMA by China Mobile. The other versions, however, won't be introduced for some time.
In case you're wondering, the online order price for LePhone is $425 - or 2,899 yuan. The iPhone, though reduced in price in recent weeks, still runs a pretty penny in China - one of the major reasons why Apple's revolutionary smartphone is yet to resonate in the world's biggest mobile community as it has elsewhere.

I don't doubt that there are and will be better phones released than the iPhone, but half the fun of having an iPhone is jailbreaking it. I know we came a lot about the restrictions placed by Apple, but hasn't every firmware to date been pretty much jailbroken? Besides there are more developers committed to the iPhone than any other PhoneOS out there.
I know we *whinged* alot. My typo. I surely didn't cum

I still find it funny how every phone is compared to the iPhone and is the iPhone killer etc. Remember the LG Dare and the Samsung Extinct? LOL! People are saying that the next iPhone isnt even out yet and its already behind. Really? Behind what?
All the Droid phones coming out are nice and all but come on. How many phones are these companies gonna release? They are trying to hard.MacBook Pro i7

I think is time to change to new phones. I am planing to change to new HTC EVO 4G that is one of the most sophisticated cell phones we have ever seen.
Iphone is a good phone to but apple asholes are terrible as long as they are letting their fans with jailed phones.
Since 3 month I have jailed brand new 3gs iphone on my drawer and this is why I will sell that brick and bye useful phone that will offer me full functional applications that I need.
I think is time to ignore and boycott apple products since they only care for money and do not care to offer to the customers satisfaction.

- Did you know that the Android ripped off the iTunes App store?
- Did you know that 95% people don't know squat about electronics?
- Did you know that all the Android phones "Which attempt to put" high quality hardware on it, still fail? Like higher MP camera, no focus
Apple doesn't care about hardware, software counts. Apparently its proven that Android phones are idiotic.
"Oh I have to pay for everything."
"Oh there are no apps like in cydia"
"Oh they have ****** ripped off apps of the Itunes on Android store"
"Oh Why can't does my camera suck, and the iPhones lower MP camera doesn't."
But every Android user realizes all that sooner or later.

All I need is an cell phone that I can use to make phone calls, send SMS, take pictures, record videos, listen music and functional wifi that I will use for skype and msn messenger.
I said Iphone is a good phone with a lot of support but not by apple company.

Apple - it's a love/hate relationship only us
jailbreakers can appreciate.
