It’s called the Comodo Console and it will go on sale in February.

The device has a 4.3-inch touch screen and comes with a rear camera, speakerphone, GPS antenna and cellular modem with an always-on connection.

The Comodo is offered on a carrier plan through Israel’s Cellcom. It costs about $23 a month on a 3 year contract plus about $10 a month for service plus music.
