Hands on with the CoolPAD 728 CDMA/GSM smartphone

You'd better have a pretty spectacular product if you're going to put "cool" in its name ("i," on the other hand, can be prefixed to any piece of junk), and Chinese manufacturer CEC Telecom seems to have produced just such a device with their CoolPAD 728. Available through mobile carrier China Unicom, the CoolPAD is a Windows CE-powered smartphone which sports two SIM slots for the ability to run on 800MHz/1900MHz CDMA and 900MHz/1800MHz/1900MHz GSM networks- simultaneously (we're not sure how many people are skillful enough to hold two conversations at once, but the bragging rights alone warrant this feature, we feel). Other niceties include a dual-core 266MHz Samsung ARM processor, 2.8-inch QVGA screen, 1.3 megapixel camera, and a handy, talking English-to-Chinese dictionary. We've got a few more pics of this double-duty mobile, but for the real motherlode you've gotta head over to Engadget Chinese, who went so snap-happy that they needed two posts to cram all the pics in.
