Smartphone attempts to do 7.1 surround sound

We've seen mobiles add everything from cameras, GPS right through to acting as a compass - now a handset in Hong Kong is trying to be a sound system.

Featuring a staggering 7.1 audio, which if the photos illustrate it accurately the information is not misleading. Perhaps it can get away with calling itself a stereo, but without separation of the speakers for channeling then it's sure to send out an interesting sound.

The phone is also claimed to include a 3.5-inch QVGA touchscreen, Bluetooth, two-megapixel camera, a microSD slot, and a transparent protective lid.

Yet, no real details on availability.
