We unfortunately didn't spot this one ourselves at IFA, but it looks like Rockchip had more than just the usual tablets on display at the show -- it also had this Android-based desk phone tucked away at its booth. Before you get too excited, however (tough, we know), we should point out that Rockchip is apparently just using the phone as a showcase for its own chipset, which it hopes will be used in a whole range of different Android-based devices. The prototype on display was apparently fully functional though, and included both landline and 3G connectivity, and a built-in camera for video calls -- so there may be at least a slight chance that it could wind up as an actual product someday.
