Glofish X800 Phone Launch
E-TEN on Thursday ended speculation by revealing the Glofish X800. The company's latest smartphone is also its most powerful through both hardware and software. The X800 has an exceptionally sharp 640x480 screen, four times the resolution of most devices its size; it also brings in HSDPA Internet access for broadband speeds away from Wi-Fi hotspots (which are also supported). Accordingly, the device is E-TEN's first to use Windows Mobile 6, promising faster browsing and live 'push' data for Microsoft Office Mobile.
Media is a similarly strong point with a front VGA camera for 3G video calls, a 2-megapixel camera for photos and videos, and GPS for geography-specific maps and related features. E-TEN hopes to launch the X800 worldwide during the spring and is likely to see a US release thanks to quad-band GSM network support. Pricing should range between $850 and 900.
