If you ask most smartphone users, they will tell you they are in a sort of a love-hate relationship with their device: they love the mobility and the multitude of things their smartphone can do (Internet browsing, GPS, awesome apps and numerous little gizmos that make their life easier), but they also have the fact that they basically have to have a charger with them most of the time. We have all complained about the fact that the battery of smartphones last too little and somewhere along the way we have missed our old Nokia 1310. But have no fear: meet Midia InkPhone, a smartphone which you don’t have to charge for two weeks.
This smartphone is sold by Art Tech, a distributor in Poland. The folks at Art tech promise an autonomy of up to 14 days on a single charge. You may be wondering how many thousands of mAh this terminal has and the answer is simple: 1800 mAh. And yet, how can a battery last for 14 days with only one charge? What is the secret? Well the secret is in the electronic ink display, a technology that is used in some eReaders.
Midia InkPhone: can we call it a smartphone?
Although the Midia InkPhone does not exaggerate in terms of specifications, things don’t look too bad: the new Onyx Midia InkPhone has a 4.3 inch screen with a resolution of 480 × 800 pixels and has front lighting. Comes with a Rockchip platform with 1 GHz processor and 512 MB RAM. The bad part is that it has no camera (so, make sure you don’t have too many Kodak moments) and cannot run videos. Instead it comes with an Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and we love that.
The phone will come at a price of 140 euros, starting with April 2014 in stores in Germany and Poland, so if you are planning a vacation on Europe, make sure you check out the Midia InkPhone for yourself.
