A great Pocket PC Phone Edition gets even better - as recently unveiled, today E-TEN Information Systems has announced that it will launch an updated version of its popular M600 Pocket PC Phone at Computex Taipei 2006. The new model, dubbed the M600+, retains the elegant design and impressive core hardware features that made the original M600 a favorite among both the media and consumers and adds increased 256MB memory capacity, an improved 2.0 mega-pixels camera and updated software including support for Push E-Mail services, to make a great Pocket PC Phone package even better.
The original M600 Pocket PC Phone was designed by E-TEN to deliver a complete communications package in a single compact device. The phone/PDA offers quad-band (worldwide) GSM and GPRS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity options, each of which come supported with a comprehensive suit of software utilities that make keeping in touch while on the move simple and efficient. More highlights of the M600 that earned praise from reviewers include; a fast 400MHz Samsung processor that delivers boosted performance with the latest mobile applications, an extra-bright 2.8" display, and impressive battery life. Consumers loved the M600 for its elegant antenna-free compact design, versatile SDIO expansion slot, and its ease of use.
With the M600+ E-TEN have made a few modest improvements to the M600 specification to offer better value and features without impacting upon the performance that made the original such a hit favorite. Flash memory has been increased to 256MB (double the original capacity) meaning consumers can load the M600+ with even more mobile applications, personal documents and contact information. Secondly, the built-in camera has been upgraded and is now capable of capturing images up to 2.0 mega-pixels in size. Finally, support for Bluetooth 2.0 has been added.
The M600+ comes preloaded with the latest version of Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0, which adds support for Direct Push technology. With Direct Push the mobile capabilities of the M600+ are extended even further by enabling most of the information stored on a corporate Microsoft Exchange Server to be updated directly on the phone. Many mobile professionals are now familiar with 'Push E-Mail' services that allow the delivery of certain kinds of E-Mails onto their mobile devices, however on the M600+, Direct Push goes even further allowing contacts, calendars, tasks and other information, in addition to E-Mails, to be sent to the device.
The M600+ will be available soon in all regions and will be priced only reasonably higher than the M600.
