Eten's brand new InfoTouch P600 is available in Germany. This is a Pocket PC Phone Edition device and exclusively distributed through consus solutions GmbH. The P600 is equipped with a StrongARM 32-bit RISC processor, 32MB ROM, 64MB RAM, and a 240x320 TFT LCD with 65,536 colors. The Li-Ion rechargeable battery is good for up to 8 hours. Synchronization is achieved through either the built-in IrDA or the included USB adaptor.
Memory can be enhanced through the addition of Compact Flash Type II cards or MultiMedia cards. Simple navigation is provided by a five-directional button input system and through the touch screen.

Communications capabilities include GSM/GPRS 900/1800MHz dual band wireless supporting all Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 standard communications applications including MSN Messenger, the personal communications application ideally suited for economic use of GPRS wireless technology. The unit also functions as a cellular phone.

The best news of all is that - according to consus consulting's FAQ page - the P600 supports SDIO as well as CF cards with an additional available adapter! Holy cow, SDIO and CF - this means we come closer to the Bluetooth headset as the Eton P600 doesn't include Bluetooth by default.

Beside this, consus consulting also announced the launch of the P610 Pocket PC which is a W-LAN version (without Phone Edition) of the P600.

The P600 is available from right now for Euro 800,00 from different distributors and shops. A international availability wasn't announced so far. Not from Eten nor from consus consulting. I've already contacted the guys at consus and hope to get more information soon!
