The Regard is equipped with a 5 megapixel rear camera / camcorder with LED flash, zoom, 1080p video capture, Time Catch Shot, which takes pictures before pressing shutter button, and Cheese Shutter, which will react and snap a photo when you say “cheese”. On the front there is a VGA camera for self-portraits and video chatting with your friends and family.
The device runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is not the latest one, but still you will be able to enjoy this unique Android experience.
