New Android Phone From Saygus Features Two-Way Video Calling

Saygus unveiled a new Android equipped smartphone that has two-way video calling capabilities. The Saygus VPhone is expected to be available as a CDMA device through Verizon’s Open Development Initiative (ODI).

The VPhone has two cameras—a 5 MP main camera with auto focus and flash and a VGA forward-facing camera for video calling. The phone also offers Wi-Fi, USB, Bluetooth, a slide-out keyboard, and a screen resolution that is twice that of the iPhone. Its long-life battery can provide up to four hours of video calling and seven hours of talk time.

Using major U.S. cellular networks, Saygus has achieved two-way cellular video calls at 24 to 30 frames per second using its low bandwidth video calling technology. The company has tested its technology on other devices and other cellular networks implementing video calling at 2.5G EDGE data rates.

Nice phone. Too bad Verizon jacked up the early termination fee for their service. Who want to get on the hook for 350 Bucks to them just to pay to use their service?

It's true that we never sign up for these services to stop them mid-contract, but sometimes things happen and you have to. 350 Bucks is twice the rip-off they used to have.

Never gonna buy from them under these circumstances.
