    CedarTrail… N2600? Why not Pentium 166 MMX? :))
    It’s (almost) August, 2013!

    Atom E3810, E3821, E3822, E3823, E3840?

    Very intreresting but why a such old processor? there is clover trail + already, or even celeron or pentium. And the worst is the screen, we are in 2013, the minimum should HD (and it’s a great minimum). FHD should equiped this device.

    And he is too fat. I will keep an eye on, hoping a new model .Juste more slim with a good processor and 10h battery, and it will answer perfectly my needs ^^

    Hi andi. Can you please point me to the official web site of newman? I looked to but they don’t show their new phones.
    Btw I’m also looking for the Star web site.
    Who’s making phone for them? I cannot find anything on this company. I need to know which 3g frequencies their phones work on. I’m looking for a phone that work in america on 850/1900 and usally this is the kind of info they are giving on their web site.
