iNew i3000, Android 4.2, quad-core and 5-inch display at $234.99

Straight off the back of the hugely popular iNew i2000 comes the iNew i3000 with 5-inch display, quad-core processor and Android 4.2.

iNew have shot to internet fame for their low-cost Android phones, and have even grabbed the attention of members of the XDA Developers forum (fingers crossed for some awesome custom ROMS).

Gizchina News of the week

The iNew i3000 offers the same great value for money as the larger i2000, but in a more compact (but still far from small) 5-inch form factor. Like many modern phone iNew have managed to keep the size down further by using narrow bezels meaning the phone measures in at 72mm wide.

Under the 5-inch 1280 x 720 display and safely inside the 9.2mm body is a 1.2Ghz, quad-core MT6589 processor, 1GB RAM, dual-sim support, micro SD card reader, Bluetooth, GPS and an 8 mega-pixel rear camera,

You can pick up the iNew i3000 for $234.99 at SpeMall here.

    Do iNew have an official web page where we can be notified of updates for their devices?

    Until Chinese manufacturers start respecting the GPL that’s attached to the Linux kernel and start releasing their sources, there will be no decent custom roms like Cyanogen Mod and Paranoid Android for these phones. That’s what sets Oppo apart, they release their kernel source!

        That’s not entirely correct. Even if MTK did release their source code, you’d still need the manufacture to give you the config files and patches they made before you could compile a kernel to work on their devices and have all the peripheral hardware and sensors work. The manufactures do have the kernel source, they couldn’t make their devices without it.
