ZiiLABS Zii Trinity Smartphone Announced

Zii TrinityZiiLABS promised and ZiiLABS delivered with the announcement of their first smartphone development platform entitled the Zii Trinity. The Zii Trinity is based off of Zii:ABS StemCell ZMS-05 processor with added quadband GMS and triband WCDMA/HSDPA. ZiiLABS is a subsidiary of Creative and has brought a lot of punch to this new smartphone.

The Trinity comes packed with a ton of features that are sure to make it top on the list of smartphones. The Zii Trinity comes with 1080p full HD which is also supported together with accelerated OpenGL ES 3D graphics. The Trinity runs a 3.1-inch 800x480 OLED capacitive touchscreen with 3.5G support.

Along with all of this the Trinity also manages to add in WiFi b/g, a GOS system, Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR and even a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus. Aside from the 5 megapixel camera there is also a VGA camera on the front of the device for video calls and a microSD card slot.

The Trinity includes a micro USB 2.0, mini HDMI and composite video output. A 1,130mAh battery pack is included with the Trinity and the device will run Creative's own Plaszma OS or even Google's Android platform. Users will be able to fully customize a Zii-optimized Android install or the Plaszma interface.

The one unfortunate factor in the Zii Trinity is that it will not be available to the general public through a mobile phone store. It will be available through a Zii Development Kit 3G Phone Edition. This kit includes schematics, Gerbers, mechanical drawings, Board Support Package, middleware and OS. There is no word on pricing as of yet but I will update you as information arises.

For now, this new smartphone looks to be pretty impressive and is packed with some amazing features. Definitely be on the lookout for this device in the near future.
