Philips touchscreen phone

Dutch electronics giant Philips is working on its own attempted competitor to the iPhone, leaked information suggests. A Chinese site, CCID, says it has obtained preliminary information on a new Xenium phone, called the X800. Like the iPhone the X800 is designed as a mostly touchscreen-controlled device, with any physical buttons relegated to essential commands; its physical differences consist mostly of a black backing and a more slender profile.

In terms of software the X800 attempts to mimic the iPhone's home screen, using icons to launch applications such as games, e-mail and the camera. The phone can also be tilted sideways for a landscape view; it is not known, however, if it will rotate automatically using a motion sensor. Prices and release dates are likewise unknown, but one image suggests it may at least be carried by Vodafone Hong Kong.

    Whatever!

    It still runs windows... so it still sucks.

    You can package up a piece of $hit (Windoze) any way you like, but it is still a piece of $hit!
