Have you ever heard of UBiQUiO? Me neither but maybe the company is worth to watch. At least their latest ultra slim Pocket PC Phone Edition with QWERTY keyboard, the UBiQUiO 501, is an interesting devices for all non-Smartphone users since it also features the traditional Pocket PC input through the 2.5" QVGA touch screen, allowing stylus control of menus and programs.
The UBiQUiO 501 has a host of connectivity options to choose from. Bluetooth 1.2 with A2DP, it either connects to the internet using WiFi 802.11b or 802.11g or via GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 MHz networks (sorry - no EDGE or GSM 850 MHz).
The 2 megapixel camera should provides a crisp and colorful imaging and the the 64 MB internal storage is extendable through miniSD cards:

Expansys is already listing the UBiQUiO 501 for £319.95 but since I've never heard of them before, I'm still curious if it will be seriously released or just another Windows Mobile devices which hides after the announcement. Nevertheless, all together the device as well as its features are looking promising enough to hope it will be released!
By the way - according to PDA France it seems that this device has been produced by TFW (Tech Faith Wireless) which is also rumored to manufacture the Samsung SGH-i320.

UPDATE: My fault - I've completely overseen that we have talked about the device earlier already and indeed it is from Tech Faith Wireless, as the photos here confirm.

Cheers ~ Arne
