Philips, back to mobile.

It's been a while since we last heard of Philips as a mobile manufacturer, especially in Europe and America. The last I remember to have seen a Philips phone was probably the same time the Nokia 3310 was about the smartest a phone could get according to many.

As it still is unsure if Philips actually will release their phones in Europe and America (or anywhere at-all), the specs are something to look at. The Philips W8510 will have a 4.7" HD screen, probably 1080, it'll run Android, unsure which version and if they will put a skin atop. The good part comes now though. Philips is really aiming to the people who NEED power! it's got a 3300 mAh battery and a lot of software optimization to power the phone for 18 hours straight on 3G and stand-by for 35 days. It also should have the Xenium technology which should improve the battery life as well. On top of that, it has got a physical button that shuts down any non-essential connections, like WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. If all this wasn't enough, it'll be able to quick-charge the phone, giving it 10 minutes charging up to 20 days of stand-by.

As of now there is no real information besides this. So we have no idea what kind of processor it will have, or how much RAM it can take.

Would you consider this phone as your next?
