GoPhone.com.tw have got several articles on the new Dopod U1000. This device already has many names and you may have heard it called the HTC Athena / HTC x7500 / T-Mobile Ameo. It’s got a 624Mhz Intel Bulverde CPU, although it seems to be restricted a little by the 128MB RAM. There’s also a “VueFLO” motion sensor which lets you move the screen up and down merely by tilting the device when browsing in the Opera Browser and Internet Explorer.
For the spec-heads you can expect GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz connectivity with UMTS 850/1900/2100MHz. There’s also GPRS/EDGE, WCDMA/HSDPA and WiFi 802.11b/g. The screen is 640×480 pixels and there’s two cameras – a 3 megapixel and a VGA one for video calls. It also benefits from A2DP Bluetooth 2.0, built-in GPS, stereo speakers, VGA TV output and even an industry-standard 3.5mm audio jack! :)
