Taiwan’s OKWAP announces they are jumping into the shark infested smartphone pool. The S868 runs Windows Mobile 5.0 and incorporates a 2.4 inch touch-screen, 2 megapixel camera with autofocus, GPRS, Bluetooth, Infrared, stylus and alphanumeric keypad but it does keep its dainty figure weighing in at a mere 4.3 ounces.
To set themselves apart OKWAP has added their own shortcut menu as well as a virtual scroll wheel over the keypad. For example, took look through your pictures you just circle round the ’5′ key instead of pressing a button or scrolling through with a wheel. Juiced with an Intel PXA270 416Mhz CPU, it has 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM, expandable with SD or MMC cards the S868 is ready for the big boys. The S868 will launch in Taiwan late February for $470.
