E-TEN Information Systems today announced the introduction of the X500+, its first to market high-resolution (VGA) Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC Phone Edition smartphone. The new product delivers the visual and ergonomic benefits of a larger screen-area, improved Auto-Macro camera, and the latest Windows Mobile 6 platform in an easily portable, ultra-thin form factor for entertainment, communications and productivity on the move.
Following the crowd-pleasing preview of its upcoming Glofiish X800 - its first Pocket PC Phone to feature 3.5G connectivity, Windows Mobile 6, and a VGA display - at CeBIT 2007, E-TEN has announced the new Glofiish X500+ aimed at consumers and business professionals seeking one of the latest high-featured all-in-one Pocket PC Phones but who don't yet need or have access to 3.5G connectivity.

One of the highlight features of the Glofiish X500+ is its VGA display which offers up to four times the resolution of previous E-TEN handsets. With more pixels on the screen, images and movies viewed on the X500+ are sharper and show more detail making the X500+ the first choice for enjoying mobile multimedia. Additionally, the X500+ includes a 2-magapixel camera allowing users to capture high-resolution photographs and record home-video.

The X500+ is based on the Windows Mobile 6 Professional platform and comes complete with the latest mobile applications for business and leisure. Updated Mobile Office applications add new functions and editing options to help users stay even more productive while working with documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on the move, while the new Windows Live for Windows Mobile suite helps them surf the internet and communicate online.

Additionally, E-TEN's exclusive suite of in-house developed software comes preloaded on the device including the new utility, Namecard Manager. Namecard Manager is designed to simplify the process of updating contacts on the X500+. Using the built-in Auto-Macro camera, which helps capture images at close distances, Namecard Manager lets users photograph a business card, and then uses OCR technology to identify and extract contact information, adding it to the device's contact's list in just a few easy steps.

As with the original Glofiish X500, the X500+ measures just 113.5 x 60.5 x 15.5 mm and is available in silver and black.

Further information like availability and price weren't given today.

UPDATE: E-Ten just informed me to let us know, that the estimated retail/street price is anywhere between 560 - 600 Euro. Still no word about availability.

Cheers ~ Arne
