QiGi and China TechFaith Wireless have announced QiGi i6, the first handset to feature Google's Android operating system in China. The sharp-looking touchscreen smartphone comes in two varieties, supporting either Android or Windows Mobile 6.1.

Many features are packed into the keyboard-less, HTC-esque device. It should be zippy on its 624MHz processor and Google's new OS should look lively on the 2.8-inch, 65k color QVGA display. The i6 features 256mb of ROM and 128mb of RAM, a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, GPS, and a microSD slot. It contains GSM quad-band, EDGE and GPRS support, but lacks 3G coverage. It does feature integrated WiFi, which should improve networked download speeds. No word on a release date. [via SlashPhone]
