Before you dismiss this as another cheap imitation of a popular mobile phone, you might be interested to know that the QiGi i6 is available with either Windows Mobile or Android under the hood.

Although a choice of operating system is typically limited to computers, China's QiGi is apparently now offering the same option for their i6 mobile phone. True, the HTC Touch-like exterior is a bit of a turn-off, but the specs are nonetheless pretty decent. The QiGi i6 comes with a 2.8-inch touchscreen, 624MHz processor, 2-megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. No 3G, but I guess the rest of its features will be more than enough for the average mobile phone user.

The thought of having OS options is indeed tempting, but I highly doubt that this particular model will be headed towards the North American market anytime soon. We are hopeful however that this will get the ball rolling in regards to providing consumers with more choice in an operating system. It might be a far fetched idea, but if it's possible in China, why not elsewhere?
