Introducing the Altair Novus Android smartphone. Featuring an advanced Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, dual SIM card slots, WiFi, a 3.5 inch capacitive touch screen, and an amazing price tag, this phone definitely shines like a star!

Full of features

The Altair Novus Android smartphone comes with everything you need to manage your busy lifestyle, stay entertained, and keep you connected with friends, family and clients. Highlights include: high speed WiFi internet access, Dual SIM card slots, Google maps, worldwide GSM connectivity, MP3/MP4 player, Gmail integration, Micro SD slot and tons of preloaded apps like YouTube, Robo Defense, WikiMobile, Yahoo messenger, and so much more.

Google Android 2.2 operating system

That means you can download any of the tens of thousands of Android apps from the official Android Market and other websites. With so many choices, how do you know which apps to download first? We recommend motion racing games like Raging Thunder, action side-scrolling games like Prince of Persia, messaging services like Fring and Skype, and of course, popular social networking choices like Twitter and Facebook.

Worldwide smartphone

The Altair Novus Android smartphone is fully compatible with worldwide quadband GSM networks for calling and internet surfing. The Altair Novus Android smartphone is fully unlocked so bros in the US, mates in Australia, amigos in Mexico, and even droogs in Russia can use this amazing smartphone. The Altair Novus Android smartphone is also dual SIM, dual standby, so you get twice as much power and can enjoy the convenience of two phone numbers on one amazing phone at the same time!

Brilliant 3.5 Inch Capacitive Touchscreen

Size does matter and everything looks better on the large, crystal-clear 3.5 inch touch screen of the Altair Novus Android smartphone. The capacitive touchscreen responds quickly to even the slightest touch of your fingertip and just like an iPhone 4 you can glide your finger across the screen to scroll through web pages, eBooks, photos, and more. But unlike the iPhone, the Altair Novus has a conveniently placed scroll ball for pinpoint accuracy when navigating through the menu system, emails, webpages or photo albums.
