AnonD-27250, 22 Oct 2011HI there, I bought one of these via ebay - at the time th... moreI am waiting for the last 8 years or so for several companies that announced to release there specific optical zoom cameraphone NEXT YEAR!!
But for the last 8 years that next year never came.
About the Altec Leo, I did send them an email but they did not respond, on there website the last 3 years I read:
This product is currently unavailable. Altek reserves the right to make changes of specification without prior notice at the time of publication.---------

So I like to know how anyone managed to buy the Altek Leo especially in Europe.

HI there,
I bought one of these via ebay - at the time there was a lot of talk about it being released in the Uk in August 2011 and I fancied having one first. It is a superb camera - you can blow up pictures to more that A4 and crop and the detail is still good. The lens is very good - if you have stable hands you can get some good close up shots. As it is android you can put apps on it - I have kindle on it, although it's a bit of a fiddle as because the phone has not been released in the uk amazon will not recognise it so you have to download to via computer. Unfortunately I had a technical problem and had to ship the phone back to Taiwan - it has been returned to me and the problem mended but this is the only solution if problems arise - apparently sale outside Taiwan and China is not authorised so check that your guarantee with the seller covers repairs. One downside in the battery life which is not great particularly if you are using the zoom. I love this phone!

A jeh, this is what I'm waiting for,
but more info about speed off processor, gps etc would be nice.

I hoped that canon, sony or Nikon would make something like that.
but Altek congrets!

I think N8 is much better for me, with 1/1.83" sensor rather than leo's 1/2.33" sensor... N8 sensor is much bigger and will be able to capture "true" 12mp photos... and for my opinion altek leo is very much bulky to carry all around as a phone...

i only hear leo is coming on oct 2010 499us$

The Altek Leo was launched today at the Communicasia event. It will come with Android 2.1(Eclair), and will support Android 2.2(Froyo) when it is released. It looks to be an excellent phone, with an even better camera!
