Following E-TEN Information Systems earlier Glofiish X500+ announcement, E-TEN was kind enough to send over a brand new Glofiish X500+ to be reviewed by the::unwired. While the X500+ isn't the first available Windows Mobile 6 Professional/Pocket PC smartphone, it's quite unique and the first in many ways. For instance its the first Windows Mobile 6 smartphone which features a 2.8" VGA high-resolution display and it's the first GPS-enabled Windows Mobile 6 smartphone featuring a SiRF Star III chipset with TMC support (thanks to the inbuilt FM radio tuner).
All the other features, like quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE (no EDGE, no UMTS/HSDPA), WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR as well as the Samsung SC32442 CPU at 400 MHz and the 128 MB ROM/64 MB SDRAM are pretty much standard today.

Bellow my first impressions of E-TEN's first available Windows Mobile 6 Professional device:

A detailed review is coming soon. In the meantime feel free to ask your questions in the comments bellow.

UPDATE: The review is here.

Cheers ~ Arne

I would like to know how this device performs playing movies in VGA resolution. What about the camera auto-macro mode? X500 don't have a macro mode. And what about the battery life? I look forward for your review.

By the way, I've just realized that X500, X500+ and X800 contains "only" 64MB of RAM memory, while their high-end competitors have 128MB of RAM. Does somebody know how useful these extra 64MB are?

Arne, are you sure about the "no EDGE"? Last I recall, the X500+ sports the same wireless connectivity as the X500 (quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE). E-TEN's web site has confirmation.

Yep, sorry! My fault! It's EDGE and I've corrected it! Thanks for the notice.
