E-TEN Information Systems today announced that its M600 Pocket PC Phone Edition now has the latest version of Skype 2.0 pre-installed on the device. Existing M600 users are invited to download Skype 2.0 from the link given below. E-TEN also confirmed that the company is scheduled to release an OS upgrade for the device soon and that Skype 2.0 will be one of the new features included in this package.
With built-in support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Quad-band GSM and GPRS, the M600 Pocket PC Phone delivers a complete communications package in one compact device. And with Skype 2.0 for the Pocket PC, these capabilities extend even further allowing users to share the same Skype account with their PCs and M600 and to enjoy free/low rate internet calls even while on the move.
Many of the Pocket PC devices currently available (including those manufactured by well-known brands) are unable to meet the hardware requirements for Skype certification Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Windows Mobile 5.0, 312MHz processor and high-speed wireless internet connection. E-TEN's M600 is not just one of the few products that is certified, but its small size, innovative internal antenna design and fast 400MHz processor give it the edge over products from other manufacturers.
E-TEN's in-house software teams are constantly working to develop applications that increase the value of E-TEN products with new features and benefits. The latest of these exclusive utilities will give the M600 the ability to make Skype calls in receiver mode in addition to Skype's default speakerphone mode. This means that Skype calls made on the M600 have the same feel as a regular phone call and that conversations are able to remain private.
The M600 is one of the smallest Pocket PC Phone Editions with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. The sleek handheld device's 400MHz Samsung CPU, large 128MB Flash ROM and a comfortable 2.8" transflective display deliver best-of-class performance when running Windows Mobile 5.0 applications. The device also features a 1.3 megapixel camera with flash and 4x digital zoom and comprehensive multimedia capabilities including video record and playback, digital music playback and voice memo recording.
