Speaking about the upcoming Kodak Android smartphones and tablets, which are apparently aimed at customers looking for high-end, yet simple user experience. Bullitt Mobile’s involvement here is important. Kodak will not be making its own devices, and in fact be outsourcing most of the development work to Bullitt Mobile, the company responsible for the Caterpillar phones known for their ruggedness.
