a few weeks ago, E-TEN captured headlines with two landmark announcements; the
launch of a new consumer brand
for Pocket PC Phones and accessories, glofiish, and
the release of one of the
world's thinnest all-in-one communications devices, the glofiish X500.
Today E-TEN brings to market the glofiish M700, a full-featured communications
device optimized for rapid messaging and high mobile productivity. The glofiish
M700 is set apart from traditional Pocket PC Phones, which rely on a touch
screen and stylus for data input, by giving users the ability to enter contact
details, write SMS text and E-Mail messages, or create and edit office documents
while on the move more efficiently using a full-key QWERTY keyboard. Designed to
achieve the right balance between ergonomics and size, the glofiish M700
incorporates a sliding mechanism to allow the keyboard to be covered when not in
use, while EL backlit keys extend usability to almost any setting.
Based on the latest version of Windows Mobile 5.0, the glofiish M700 supports
Direct Push Technology to help business users work more effectively with E-Mail
evenwhile out of the office and includes mobile versions of Microsoft Word,
Excel and PowerPoint for greater convenience and productivity.
The glofiish M700 supports GSM, GPRS and high-speed EDGE for voice and data
connectivity almost worldwide, while IEEE802.11b/g support allows users to
connect to public and private Wi-FI networks when in range of suitable hotspots.
For travelers, the glofiish M700 also features GPS and TMC functions delivered
via an embedded SiRF Star III chipset allowing the glofiish M700 to handle both
daily business needs and weekend leisure.
Preloaded on the glofiish M700 are a
number of E-TEN in-house developed value added software utilities including;
M-Desk, an easy to use Program launcher, several phone and messaging tools,
camera and image editing software, FM tuner, backup utility and more.
Glofiish M700 is scheduled to launch in November 2006. A price wasn't given
