Geek’s Phone One Pro Being Announced Wednesday?

Remember the Geek’s Phone One? I first mentioned it to you folks in May and was reluctant to do so as it seemed/sounded like a possible fake – it wasn’t. But even though the company is real they have yet to produce a consumer ready product and this month have faced further delays. Fortunately those delays are to improve the produce and the company is poised to announce the Geek’s Phone One Pro on Wednesday, September 18th:

They call it Geek’s Phone ONE r2 but everyone knows that when you add a keyboard what you’ve really done is made the “PRO” version, right? So the ONE PRO is just my own name but hopefully they adopt it. The other thing is that they mention the product was delayed and in the extra time they took they redesigned and reconfigured some hardware decisions. I’m not sure if the ONE Pro is a second “option” for the phone or whether it completely replaces the original model.

We’ll hopefully find out Thursday: on the Official Geeks Phone Forum they discuss developments of the product including an event announcement scheduled for Wednesday, September 30th:

  • Available  for Christmas Season (late Nov, early Dec)!
  • Resistive touchscreen
  • No accelerometer
  • No G-compass
  • DVB-T Tuner and DVB Radio
  • A-GPS
  • 40 key, 4-row keyboard
  • Will cost about the same as the Dream or Magic
  • The phone is just called ONE… Geek’s Phone is the brand.

[Thanks Desmut!]

    Today is the 28th so did they announce it on the 18th or not?

    Produce? Does this come with a head of lettuce or something?

    :) Im just bustin your balls. it’s cool to have another android phone butthis doesnt look too impressive.

  • Martin

    Yeah, what is it with the resistive touchscreen? Nah. And no accelerometer/compass. Wtf.

  • Héctor

    Well, the phone will not be carrier bound and will come with root enabled… THIS is impressive.

  • Miguel

    This phone is garbage. At that price, lacking those features, it should include better hardware than the Magic, not less.

    uma?

    The Holy Graile of Android phone is yet to come. Us faithful devotés has been given a sign of things to come. Holy G1 YOU have given us Five Row Slide Out Keyboard. Cupcake, and a Touch Screen that does our bidding (on ebay or anywhere else really) Though some has not followed the path but we follow your chosen leader. CYANOGEN. He has led us to Custom build and a Root we can follow. We await the second coming. Hmmmm Moto Dext or T-Mobile G2 might do for now…….
