Aussie budget technology maker, Millennius, is set to release their own Android phone next month. The phone will be sold their online store, and will come in two variants: 8GB ($399) & 16GB ($450+).
The phone(s) will run on UMTS Bands I/II/IV (2100MHz,1900MHz,850MHz respective), meaning it will work flawlessly on Telstra’s “NextG” network, but not on Vodafone or Optus’s regional 900MHz 3G networks.
Millennius’s phone will run Android 1.6 (Updates to 2.x in the future), powered by a 600MHz Qualcomm CPU. The only downside to the device is the Resistive Touch Screen.
