+ - Fully functional Android phone embedded in Entertainment Weekly->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "You’d have to do something extra crazy to stick out in a magazine these days, even if that meant embedding a small screen in your magazine ad to offer information in real time. In fact, that’s exactly what The CW accomplished when they embedded a smartphone into this week’s Entertainment Weekly.

The ABO 810 is a pretty basic Android phone. For about $40 you can order one online, and receive an Android 2.2 smartphone with a 2.3 screen. Compared to modern Android phones, it’s not much. If you remove all of the plastic, pop off that keyboard, and slide the battery over to the left a bit, you’ve got a pretty thin phone. Thin enough, in fact, to setup an inexpensive monitor to show off commercials for your upcoming television shows."
