E-Ten M800 official
E-Ten's latest smartphone, also known has the Glofiish, has now been officially announced. Its codenumber is actually the M800, but a number of other specifications have been confirmed, such as the presence of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a SiRFstar III receiver and a two-megapixel autofocus camera. Connections include quad-band GSM, but more crucially the phone has EDGE and HSDPA, making it a prime candidate for networks such as AT&T. The processor has been bumped to 500MHz, although E-Ten is not sharing internal memory figures, only disclosing the option of microSD cards.
Similarly under wraps is the touchscreen, whose dimensions are unknown. It should have an unusually high 640x480 resolution however, making it at least twice as sharp as most smartphones. Below the display are touch-sensitive physical controls. No official price or release date for the M800 is available, but rumors have suggested it could be as soon as later this month.
