Innocomm Shark, Shadow, Scorpion & Gemini: High End, Low Priced Androids


SkateAt Mobile World Congress 2009, a small company named Innocomm showed off an Android phone they called the Innocomm Skate (pictured) – it still isn’t released. That phone faced delays due to a change in chipsets but that hasn’t slowed down the company’s Android aspirations. In an interview with PC World the company’s Sales Manager made mention of at least 4 more handsets on the way: the Innocomm Shark, Innocomm Shadow, Innocomm Scorpion and Innocomm Gemini.

The most imminent of the 4 seems to be the Shark which had a pretty darn good list of specs and is, according to Sales Manager Chuck Huang, slated for May or June:

  • 3.2-inch touchscreen
  • 800 x 400 pixel resolution
  • 8MP camera with flash
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • MicroSD slot up to 32GB
  • GPS, 3G, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • 115 x 58 x 12.5 mm
  • Analog TV Receiver
  • Digital TV Receiver in future model

The Shadow is expected to be a 4.3-inch phone but besides the Shark, most of Innocomm’s devices are prototypes and plans. It’s great to know that their plans are based on Android:

“Windows is nice,” said Huang, but it can’t beat the price on Android.

“It’s free and the Google brand is already well known,” he said, “Android is the only OS we’re working on.”

innocomm-new-logoCan’t argue with that, and best of all, Innocomm plans to pass that savings onto the consumer:

“What we do is sell a high-end smartphone at a low-end price,” he said, adding that network operators will likely offer it for free with reasonable service contracts.

Stay tuned for more on the Shark, Shadow, Scorpion, Skate and Semini. Oops, I meant Gemini – they like their esses.

  1. Semini… I see what you did there. Any word on what chipset they ended up switching out too?

  2. Sounds exciting, hope it’s not vaporware though.

  3. oh and it needs to run Android 2.1+ or else it would be a disappointment given it won’t be released for another 2-3 months.

  4. It has 2 flat sides and a rim. I guess Apple will be sueing them soon.

  5. Are these phones going to be released in the usa or only europe/asia?

  6. This is old news, they showed this phone back in June running 1.5

    Nothing special here, move along.

  7. Looks a bit small though.
    Camera sounds good but any more info available on it?

  8. Nothing special? do you see the specs on this? and its supposed to be low cost? I think you are completely underestimating this here shawn1224.

    The spec’s that this pone has even though it may be on 1.5 android make it better than G1 and MT3.

  9. Everything should be better than G1 and MT3G, can’t compare. They are old/first Android phones. I have the G1 still thinks its better than most of the Newer Android phones out there.
