Philips and Android together?


I am sure this is the question that’s gonna storm your mind for hours after reading this. Well, it’s totally true. Philips had already unleashed its Android 2.1 based device GoGear Connect at the IFA Berlin show.

This bleeding edge tool allows a user to surf the web, take pictures, watch movies and listen to music. The gadget is powered by Android 2.1 juice. It flaunts a 3.2-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 920 and weighs 128 grams. It facilitates a trackball for media player navigation. Philips GoGear Connect comes preloaded with applications that include Android Market, Google Talk and Google Maps. To add to this, it sports a massive 16 GB of internal storage with expandable memory support upto 32 GB. There is a 2 Megapixel camera in-case you wanna store some of those moments that drop by without an alarm. Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth come in handy. The Player provides a comfortable 25 hours for audio and 5 hours for video.

Philips is now venturing into territories where no one but Apple alone has managed to survive and reign for ages. Though the fact remains that Philips had just started off with the game that Apple had already mastered but still i guess something new is always welcome. The GoGear Connect is expected to hit the market with a price-tag around $320 this fall, by November.
