Having trouble finding the phone that has the exact hardware specs you want? Or maybe you’re a bit of a control freak and want to specify every detail of your phone? Germany’s Synapse-Phone may be what you’re looking for. And besides its customizability, AndroidGuys has learned that the phone will be rooted out of the box.
Wednesday German start-up company Synapse-Phones updated a separate blog apologizing for connection issues with the main site, claiming that the servers were having a hard time keeping up with the sudden high volume of traffic. The main website supposedly went down after reports indicated that the company offered customizable Android 2.2-based phones starting at $410.
Presently the option to customize and pre-order the Android smartphone is still offline, however the cached version reveals that consumers will have a lineup of options to choose as if building a custom PC. However the $410 base unit includes a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 1 GHz processor, 4 GB of storage, two built-in microphones, a microSD memory card slot, compass, Bluetooth 2.1, a 5MP camera, 256 MB of internal memory, an extra 4 GB microSD card, and 3G (GSM Quad-band and HSDPA with 7.2 MBs down).
As for the customizable options, customers can choose between 8MP and 12MP cameras, an LED flash or Xenon flash, WLAN b/g or WLAN b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, an option for a 2MP front-facing camera, optional DVB-T TV capabilities, and multimedia options including a 3.5-mm audio jack, FM radio and mini-HDMI out. Consumers can also add 4G wireless support, 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB storage capacities, 512 MB or 1024 MB internal memory, a 16 GB or 32 GB microSD card, and more.
Additional reports indicate that the Android smartphone will be rooted out-of-the-box with an unlocked bootloader. The chipset will be 720p capable, however Synapse-Phones hasn’t settled on the final processor (Qualcomm or TI).
Phones that are configured and pre-ordered now will ship in February 2011.
So who’s up for a very own custom made android phone?
