Grundig B700 – Linux Powered Blackberry Wanna-be

Grundig B700 – Linux Powered Blackberry Wanna-be


With its reticule locked in on certain BlackBerry devices, the Linux-powered Grundig B700 is a smartphone that eschews QWERTY in favor of SureType. The design may not be particularly inspiring, but one feature that some people may appreciate is that the B700 is that when it’s in standby, the color screen can be turned off completely. This way, it just looks like a ghetto calculator and no one will want to steal it. After all, no one but us geeky gadget guys will know what a Grundig is anyways.

Going down the feature list, we discover a 2.4-inch QVGA display, 2 megapixel camera with 4x zoom and LED flash, Push Email, MP3 player, FM radio, 100MB of internal memory, microSD expansion, and quad-band GSM/EDGE radios.
