Developer Fusion Garage has unveiled its new Grid4 smartphone, which has been hailed as a significant technological step forward by the company and offers extras including a micro SD slot.
Coming hot on the heels of the recent launch of the Grid10 tablet, the Grid4 handset - so called because of its four-inch screen - boasts 512 megabytes of RAM, a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor and 16 GB of storage space.
Scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of this year, the phone is powered by the GridOS operating system, which Fusion Garage claims represents a new milestone and makes for a superior all-round user experience.
While Cnet UK writer Joe Svetlik expressed doubt that the Grid4 will prove to be a "game-changer", he added that it "could offer up a quirky alternative if you've had your fill of Android and Apple's not to your taste".
Earlier in the week, girlgeekchic.com founder Nikki Moore suggested that apps are a major draw for smartphone users, as they offer a wider range of capabilities than standard models.
