GooPhone is at it again…they sit back and let the other manufacturers design a new or popular device and then they copy it and sell it to the public as their own. They love to knock off the Apple iPhone and Samsung products, but this time they turned their attentions to the newest and hottest area, techno wearables, and came out with their own smartwatch, aptly called, GooPhone Smartwatch.
The GooPhone Smartwatch is truly a smartwatch in the truest sense that it needs no other device, such as a smartphone, in order to function. It has its own built-in 2G or 3G, GPS, and comes with a camera. It uses Android 4.0 as its operating system, but if you would glance over someone’s shoulder and see him or her operating the GooPhone Smartwatch, you would swear it was a Windows Phone system looking at the main screen. Upon further investigation, you can easily see the Android look come out, as well as the Google Play Store.
The GooPhone Smartwatch comes with a 1.54-inch capacitive touchscreen, 240×240 resolution display – which translates to a respectable 220 ppi; not bad for a smartwatch. A Media Tek Dual-Core processor clocked at 1.2GHz powers the device. It carries 512K RAM with 4GB of Internal Storage with micro SIM card support, a 2MP Camera, and a battery that claims it can last 48 hours in standby mode, but that would certainly translate into a nightly recharge. Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n allows you to connect to social media and upload your favorite photos. The GooPhone Smartwatch, although rather large looking, only weighs in at 72g or about 2.5 ounces, measures in at 41.9 x 47.5 x 13.5mm or 1.6 x 1.85 x.53 inches.
The GooPhone Smartwatch comes in two varieties – the specifications are the same, except that one is for a 2G GSM quad-band network for $249.99 or a 3G WCDMA network for $299.99. The device comes in either black or white and claims this is a “presale” and they should be arriving in 5-7 days.
