Smart Communications has already taken off the wraps of its exclusive phone, the Netphone 701, which was first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona early this year.

At first glance you would think of the Netphone as yet just another smartphone rocking Android OS, but it’s not. More than just Android, the Netphone brings unique features you’ll only see on this handset at least for the time being. One distinct feature is the SmartNet, in which according to SMART is “a suite of applications that works closely with the Smart Network which makes using the services easier than ever”.

There’s also a Netphone Messenger which undoubtedly works similar with that of RIM’s BlackBerry Messenger. Of course, for socially-inclined users, there’s the Social Stream which combines Facebook and Twitter accounts in Netphone’s own MyGroups social network.
