Koolu planning to launch Android powered smartphone in mid-july

Koolu, a Toronto based open-source soecialist, reported that it is going to ship the developer versions of Neo FreeRunner mobile phone running Google’s open-source Android 1.5 “Cupcake” operating system in two week’s time. Possibly, the consumer versions will be available in mid-July.

At this week’s Cloud Expo Europe conference in London, Koolu Chief Technology Officer Jon Hall reported to Zdnet UK, “We’re targeting businesses that want functionality in their phone that they can’t get from Apple, RIM, or any of the proprietary companies”. He also said that they are aiming at small and mid size business classes and the developing countries.
