Looks like Maemo isn’t well and truly dead. Yet. Here’s something new – the Enso zenPhone. Sure, it looks like a knock-off.. And cheap.. And it is! It’ll set you back $349! So what do you get for the money?

  • 800-by-480-pixel WVGA resolution

Wireless and networking

  • Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g)
  • Bluetooth

Operating System

  • Linux Maemo 4 (although Engadget reports that it’ll be running Maemo 5, so there!)

Storage capacity

  • 8GB microSD card included. Expandable up to 16GB


  • Marvell PXA330 Xscale 806 Mhz


  • Dual camera, frontal 0.3 MP for video calls, backside 3.2 MP
