Haier is currently displaying its first Android handset at CommunicAsia known as the H7. This is the fourth handset that will feature the Android operating system aside from the HTC Dream, Magic and Samsung I7500. Owners of the handset will be pleased to know that the Cupcake update (Android OS 1.5) will come with it straight out of the box, although it remains to be seen whether OS 2.0 of the firmware will be released by the time the phone ships, and if that is the case, Haier will make sure it will ditch OS 1.5 for OS 2.0. The unit on display is but a mockup, so there is no way to check out whether it is more responsive than its competitors in the same market. We do know it will come with a 2.8″ touchscreen display, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, an integrated FM radio, GPS navigation and a 2-megapixel camera. The Haier H7 is expected to retail for $150 when it hits France later this September.
