After a delay, the phone was scheduled to arrive this month. And then it was delayed again to October / November. If and when REDs Hydrogen One actually comes, the odds are quite good, but you will not buy it. After all, $ 1,295 is almost half of Aibo. For most of us, these first official fullscores are closest to RED's first smartphone, so enjoy them, I guess.
Say what you want about the exaggeration of it all (and there's much to say on that front), but the advanced camera machine is absolutely shaking off things up here. In addition to the 5.7-inch "holographic display" and the fact that it can double as a search for one of the company's future cameras, the design definitely sets the handset apart.
REDs bucking the almost industrial trend towards minimalist design languages with all sorts of chrome. The pages, as CNET notes are serrated as a knife – apparently to make it easier to keep, but mostly just to make it look cool. It's the kind of phone design that screams, "ask me what phone I'm using, strange person on the street." Then prepare for a five-minute explanation of what "holographic display" means.
Red will begin to seed a developer model of the phone in a small group of users at the end of the month. Pre-order customers will start receiving the phone on October 9th, and will arrive in carrier stores (AT & T, Telcel, Verizon) on November 2.
