High-End Android Slider for $200! Inbrics M1

Updated on 27 January 2015 by

If Inbrics really can bring the M1 to market for $200 then we’re looking at a very good value MID/Phone but somehow I get the feeling that the mention of $200 was really a ‘CES Press Special’  i.e. whatever you say in Vegas, stays in Vegas!  The market could bear $300 for something like this so there’s no reason it would launch at such a low price.


A capacitive 800×480 screen on Cortex with a full implementation of Android along with a nice design and that productivity-helping slider keyboard makes this a ‘must watch’ device. We would have like to have seen a larger screen for real high-end usage and we wonder how long this device will look ‘high-end’ considering the pace that new high-end smartphones are entering the market but it’s interesting all the same.

Here’s a video of the device at CES a few weeks ago.

Thanks to Netbooknews for ‘helping hands’ on this video.

    $200?! gimme gimme gimme!

    that keyboard looks painful to use tho, and that odd port could be DMB, basically the video version of DAB.

    Looks interesting. What screen size? That with a 4.1″ screen and T-Mobile-USA 3G could be quite compelling.

    Though, I’d prefer it to have a dpad on the face. Otherwise, looks good. (similar to turn.self.off, though, I’m concerned about the keyboard feel)

    […] like after some good feedback at CES, they’re hoping to get it into consumers’ hands. At CES Inbrics was saying that they may be able to sell the device for something like $200 unsubsidized which would make this already attractive slider even more […]
