February and confirmed again in
June, E-Ten today let us know that they will soon launch the
V900, the first
Windows Mobile DVB-T
3G smartphone and the
Glofiish X610, a
2.5G entry Windows Mobile smartphone. The Glofiish X610 is an upgraded version
of E-Ten's X600
featuring E-Ten's Today screen plug-in, based on Spb Mobile Shell V2.1 as well
as the ID is a little different from Glofiish X600 by using a flat touchscreen
(which is quite common for today's Windows Mobile Professional smartphone).
Powered by Windows Mobile 6.1, the X610 features a Samsung SC3 2442 CPU at 400
MHz, 128 MB Flash ROM and 64 MB SDRAM (expandable via microSD memory cards).
The 2.8" touchscreen supports QVGA and the X610 features quadband
GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi 02.11b/g and an embedded SiRF
Star III chipset. The inbuilt 2.0 megapixels camera allows to take pictures up
to 1600 x 1200 pixel.
The Glofiish V900 is also powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and
features a Samsung CPU at 533 MHz. The V900 supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as
well as triband UMTS/HSDPA, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g, inbuilt SiRF Star III
GPS and an FM radio. However, the real highlight is the support for DVB-T
The V900 is backed-up by 128 MB RAM and 256 MB ROM which can be expanded with
microSD cards. The 2.8" touchscreen supports the DVB-T typical VGA resolution
and the inbuilt autofocus camera with photo light allows to take photos up to 3
megapixel and record VGA videos.
Both devices are announced to be available soon, however a release date
wasn't given yet.
