Gupp Phreedom Linux Phone Aims to Set You Free


I’m not all too sure about the whole “replace the F with a PH” business, but the Phreedom from Gupp Technologies certainly has a lot going for it in terms of features. Too bad the same can’t be said on the aesthetic front. Yup, this handset isn’t exactly a looker by today’s standards.

Instead, it comes equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard, a 2.5-onch QVGA LCD, a “double tri band GSM radio” (whatever that means), and integrated WiFi with support for WEP and WPA. You can use that WLAN connection to score some VoIP conversations as well. Other key features on this handheld include a 312MHz PXA270 processor, combined 320MB of flash and SDRAM, 2200mAh lithium ion battery, USB, 144 hours of standby, and Mobile Linux 2.6.

Gupp is based out of Malaysia and the Phreedom is their freshman foray.
