ADzero bamboo phone specs released

Wooden wonder will pack in quad-core processor, Android 4.0 and 720p screen

We've covered the ADzero smartphone before, back when it was just a slick-looking concept wrapped in a bamboo shell. Now it's taken a step closer to reality with the release of a spec list.

Unlike the Three Little Pigs' wooden house, the ADzero is built on solid foundations – it comes packing a 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4 Quad processor and 1GB RAM, along with a 4.5in 720p screen with 326ppi pixel density.

Round the back, there's a 8MP f/2.0 camera, complemented by a 0.3MP front-facing camera. You also get a sturdy 2050mAh battery, though the 16GB of internal storage looks comparitively weedy. There's no word on microSD card support, either – though the concept render above shows what look to be like external card slots.

The ADzero will land with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, rather than Jelly Bean – though as the spec list is subject to change, it may yet come with some Jelly Bean goodness.

And the best bit? The ADzero's launching on Kickstarter soon – pledge early and you'll bag one for a mere US$500, rather than the planned retail price of US$700.
