Pricing is listed at $229.00 down from an original price of $399, but if that’s too much there is also the GooPhone i7 with single 12 mega-pixel Sony rear cream, 4.7-inch display and smaller 1960mAh battery for $179.00.
Of course it remains to be seen if these phones are actual device or just vapourware, but even still we wouldn’t recommend buying one.
