iPhone that Runs Android. Sort of.

For many, Android on a 3.5 inch capacitive multi-touch screen in an iPhone –like package will be a dream phone to have. This is what exactly a Chinese manufacturer has tried to do with APhone A6. APhone A6 is an Android powered iPhone clone boasting of a dual core processor, 2.0 megapixel camera and with an iPhone –like theme running on top of Google Android OS. It is believed to support multi-touch functionality which is kind of strange, given that it runs on Android 1.5 which doesn’t offer support for multi-touch screens.
