This is one of those oddball combinations in search of a home. It's an Android smartphone on one side using a SIM card and GSM service. On the other side is a real point & shoot zoom lens camera. It's like someone glued the two together. If someone could get voice calls to work on this, it might be interesting. The description isn't clear whether or not the cellular service is data-only.
"Device with no support for GSM voice communication."

"Device with no support for GSM voice communication."thanks for noticing that. I guess the only choice is to use VOIP for calls (GrooveIP, Talkatone, etc). It does have a mic since it supports voice commands and also has a speaker. Too much hassle IMHO.

Why would you produce this device without quad band GSM voice? It couldn't t have made a big difference in manufacturing cost. I know people that would have really liked this product if it hade full voice phone capability.
