11 cool Android prototypes we'd like to see

The Android mobile operating system is invading not only new handhelds but a host of new portable gadgets, including laptops and media tablets.

Alienware Android Phone



Here is an Android prototype/concept created by Jas Seehra for the Web site Dial-a-Phone. Although we've titled this roundup "11 Cool Android Prototypes We'd Like to See," this is the exception--we hope it never makes it to market. Why? Simply because it is ugly.

This mockup of an Alienware phone first showed up as a rumor. At the time, February 2008, the buzz was that Dell was about to enter (again) the mobile market with something more inspiring than the Axim handheld it discontinued in 2007. And what could power a hip Alienware phone? Android of course.

Here's hoping Dell won't give any thought to this concept.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
