Kodak is pretty much done when it comes to photography, but this doesnt stop the company to launch Android smartphones under Kodak Mobile branding and in partnership with Bullitt Group.
At CES 2015, Bullitt Mobile introduced Kodak IM5 a powerhouse Android smartphone rocking an octa-core 1.7GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage (32GB microSD slot included), it comes with a 5-inch Full HD screen, 13MP main camera with AF and LED Flash, and a 5MP front-facing camera.
“This is a phone for consumers who appreciate the value and heritage of the Kodak brand. It looks great, is easy to use and offers real value for money,” says Oliver Schulte, CEO of Bullitt Mobile.
Kodak IM5 runs on Google’s Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system version, however, an upgrade to Lollipop will be available
“Too many memories stay stuck on mobile phones, often because the process for sharing them is too complicated for users; that’s why we’ve partnered on the IM5, the first device in a range of mobile products that takes our heritage and experience in photographic technology and combines it with Bullitt’s expertise in designing high-quality devices for a specific target consumer,” said Eileen Murphy, VP Brand Licensing at Kodak.
The Kodak IM5 smartphone will be available soon globally in black or white, starting with roll out in Europe from end of Q1 2015.
