Is this the zzzPhone?

I just got out of a meeting with, of whom I’ll post in the next few days. One thing that struck me immediately, however, is that these guys had a working 3-SIM cellphone with touchscreen and keypad called the Eco123 which looks surprisingly like a rebadged zzzPhone. While I wish neither of these companies any ill-will, it’s nice to see the hardware and I can report that the OS isn’t Windows Mobile or Symbian and is, in fact, a proprietary amalgam Java and whatever touchscreen magic the client wants to implement. Think of this as the first “white box” phone and leave it at that, friends, and if zzzPhone promises a cool phone for not much money, believe them. The folks at EcoCarrier told me these things cost $108 each in bulk.
