The headline is Innocomm’s promise. Its upcoming Shark Android smartphone will have the performance of the Nexus One but at a much lower price when it launches in May or June. In fact, the 3.2″ LCD (800 x 480) Shark will likely be free with multi-year contract from select carriers.
This demo is pretty cool. I like the design, and although the CPU is unknown, it seems snappy. However, the choice of music could hardly be worse
It takes Asian companies to show the world that powerful smartphones do not have to cost $529 - $600. More competition usually benefits the consumer. If Innocomm can supply the impressive looking Shark at a price that is appreciably lower than the Droid/Nexus One and even the HTC Legend, then the number of Android adopters will surely proliferate. One of the biggest selling points of the Shark is its built-in analogue TV tuner. Innocomm is already planning on offering a version with a digital TV tuner later this year.
