First unveiled by the FCC late last year, today E-TEN Information Systems has officially announced the Glofiish X650, the company's latest Windows Mobile 6 Professional Pocket PC Phone to offer the benefits of all-in-one connectivity, VGA display and an ultra-compact form factor. E-TEN first introduced the option for a VGA display in May 2007 and since then has added several more models to its product lineup aimed at different customer needs. The latest X650 is designed to appeal to those seeking a compact, full-featured device that is also affordable.
Featuring Windows Mobile 6 Professional, the X650 is powered by a Samsung SC3 processor at 500 MHz and is backed-up by 256 MB ROM, 2 megapixel auto-focus camera, FM Tuner and a FM Transmitter (subject to region). Dimensions of the handset are an ultra-compact 107 x 58 x 14.7 mm with a weight of just 136 g.

A VGA display offers several significant benefits to the user. The greater resolution (four times higher than that of a typical Pocket PC Phone) enables a larger proportion of a document, calendar, map, or web page etc. to be displayed on screen at once, increasing productivity. Additionally, the higher pixel density means that text appears sharper and easier to read while pictures and video appear more detailed. VGA is set to become one of the key specifications for Pocket PC Phones in the coming year.

The Glofiish X650 features E-TEN's all-in-one connectivity solution comprising of worldwide GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. The device all comes preloaded with E-TENs exclusive software suite including Mobile Shell, Namecard Manager and Backup Utility as well as Microsoft Office Mobile, Windows Live and other utilities.

The Glofiish X650 is offered in two color choices, black and purple. An estimated retail price wasn't given yet; also no release date yet.
