Customise your own bespoke Android smartphone? Apparently, that's just what Germany based startup company Synapse is offering users. Although its website has been permanently down since the news broke, we have established that you will be soon able to order a basic model and then select hardware extras to suit your individual requirements and pocket. So even though there is a vast selection of Android handsets currently hitting the market, this will no doubt appeal to the discerning buyer with the designer touch.



The Synapse One handset will run Android 2.2 and have standard features that include a 4 inch multitouch screen with 480x800 WVGA resolution, a 5 megapixel camera and a 1 GHz processor. Other features include proximity and ambient light sensors, accelerometer and compass. It will also have AGPS and a microSD card slot.

What goes inside the phone is chosen by the user from a variety of options. Customisable extras include radio (3G and 4G, including LTE and WiMAX), Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi, mini-HDMI out, FM radio, DVB-T (for mobile television), body colour of black or white, either 4 capacitive or physical buttons, various memory and storage options and up to a 12 megapixel camera with or without a flash, a 2 megapixel front camera and more.



As to price, the phones will start at 299 including vat and will have a three year worldwide warranty. Synapse Phones say they will begin shipping in the middle of Q1 2011 and that orders should take no more than four weeks to process.
