Photography brand Kodak and mobile device manufacturer Bullitt Group today launched at CES the Kodak IM5 smartphone (IM5), a 5" HD Android smartphone. Its simple interface offers easy access to key functions such as calling, messaging, camera and contacts. A remote management software also allows trusted friends and family to provide help if needed via a PC or tablet.
As you'd expect from Kodak, imaging is central to the phone's appeal and the IM5 makes taking, storing, sharing and printing photos simple. The 13MP auto-focus main camera comes with an image management software that, at the touch of a button, lets users quickly edit photographs and either display them on the device, share on social media or print using a customized app compatible with home printers as well as future printing and sharing services.
Running Android OS (Kit-Kat which will be upgraded to Lollipop) this octa-core 1.7Ghz is expandable to 32GB via a Micro SD card. It also comes with a dedicated app store (called simply "Apps") that offers users quick access to a hand-picked selection of applications suited to their interests (there is also full access to Google Play).
Available in white or black, the Kodak IM5 will be available globally, starting with roll-out in Europe from end of Q1 2015.
