T5353 Smartphone Dual Boots Android and Windows Mobile OS

Have you ever heard of a cellular phone or smartphone that dual boots Android and Windows Mobile OS out of the box? If you haven't, then you will now. Introducing, the T5353, an HTC Touch Diamond2 clone that has a 3.2-inch touch sensitive display (240*400 pixels) and is preloaded with two mobile operating systems: Android 2.0 and Windows Mobile 6.5. Once you turn on the phone, a bootloader will appear allowing you to choose which OS to boot.

The T5353 is without doubt made somewhere in China and is designed to mimic the look and feel of the HTC Touch Diamond2 smartphone. But you don't have to be Jacky Chan to use the handset as it supports several languages including English, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, and more. The smartphone is powered by a Marvell PXA310 624MHz/XScale-V3 based processor, and is loaded with 256MB RAM and 512MB flash memory, which is expandable to up 16GB in size via MicroSD.

What's in the box?:

With its price tag of only $199.90 at DealExtreme, it's quite tempting to just grab the T5353 because I think it has most of the essential features of a smartphone, plus you get to try and use two excellent mobile operating systems. However, I have never heard or seen anyone using the T5353 just yet so I couldn't say anything about its performance. In case you already have this phone or if you decide to get one soon, don't forget to share with us the experience of using it.


  1. I'd give my little finger to have this phone. I think it's worth it.

  2. I've been using XDAndroid on my HTC Touch Pro.
    Its not exactly a dual boot solution, but all I have to do is browse over to my SD card and launch Android. It works pretty well.

  3. HTC T5353, it's amazing.I am using this phone since last 2 months. The phone manufacturer has retained all the features a windows and android phone has. I don't know why branded companies can't make these phone at this prices...Coming back to this Phone. The Gsensor is missing which can be added through Gyrator and many aplication work fantastically
