In a few month's time, the apanda A60 could be headed to our distant shores. Right now this Android 1.6 smartphone is only available on China Unicom. However, Shanzai.com states that this mobile is eventually bound for the West. Could this offering from apanda be the phone that sparks an onslaught of cheap, mid-range Chinese smartphones in the U.S. and Europe? Quite possibly. The A60 isn't a work of art or a bundle of fancy specs, but it is a solid device. It's got a Qualcomm 600 MHz processor, 256 MB of storage for the OS and 256 MB of system memory. The display is a 3.2" touchscreen and its 3G is ready for both U.S. and European markets. The camera is a 5 MP shooter, and the list price is less than $400 USD. Depending on how cheap apanda can get the cost-to-consumer down to, this thing could be a big hit. Android is a great OS to go with for a mid-range budget device like this. It keeps the price down and frees up a lot of development resources. If the A60 is just the harbinger of some great horde of Chinese smartphones, I think we'll see the bulk of those devices packing Android as well.
