China's CECT recently dropped its A1000 handset onto the market -- in China, of course -- making a decent-enough looking smartphone all the more notable thanks to its purported 1,000 hours of standby time. The handset itself is dual-band only, with a 2.2-inch QVGA screen, 4 megapixel camera with flash, 32MB of built-in memory, and media player functionality with support for MP3, MPEG4, and 3GPP. In addition to the marathon standby time, the phone's 2000 mAh battery should also give you a full 20 hours of use with the brightness cranked to the max. Unfortunately, you'll have to live without Bluetooth if you wanna outlast everyone else.
