The full colour, 5.7 inch display touting prototype just needs a friendly, loving and understanding OEM partner to take it home and nurture it – and soon.

Going on looks alone I really can’t see it having any problems with getting lots of love from gadgety readers and then you see the specs….

To start with, that XGA (220ppi) Mirasol display is not only full-colour, but allows for video playback, is supposedly readable in direct sunlight, and reportedly has a “minimal impact” on battery life.

For the full low-down have a look at SlashGear’s piece over here – just a click away 🙂
