Jetway enters smartphone business

Jetway, a company known for making PC motherboards, has decided to enter the smartphone world with a device of its own – the Alfar 560 smartphone.

The Alfar 560 was unveiled at Computex 2012 as a reference design so when it comes to market it may carry another name. Being a low-to-mid-range device the Alfar 560 packs a 650 MHz MTK6575 processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 5.1-inch display at 800 x 480 pixel resolution, Bluetooth 2.1 and a pair of 0.3 MP and 0.5 MP cameras. In addition the smartphone can operate with two SIM cards.
