But supposing it is the real deal, where will this fit into the market? It doesn't seem to look as good as the existing options and it has similar specs: 3.2 inch touchscreen, 3.2MP camera, etc...
If it works well and is priced low I guess it has a shot. I'm not exactly familiar with Philips' other offerings and I'm guessing most people aren't. I don't want to knock them because in reality, this is one of the awesomest things about Android: Philips can focus on making a great phone and not have to worry about developing and/or paying for an OS to run.
And they better ditch the V808 name... how about the "Philips HeadScrewdriver V808"? Somehow I think that would instigate some problems hehe
