E-Ten V900 M810 Official

E-Ten on Monday rolled out two of its promised updates to its Glofiish smartphones in advance of the Mobile World Congress show next week. The now formally launched V900 is the company's first-ever mobile TV phone and is one of the few from any manufacturer to support more than one standard: it handles both DVB-H (handheld) and DVB-T (terrestrial) signals in Europe as well as T-DMB in Korea; it can also handle DAB digital radio. This makes the large-screened phone an ideal fit for international football (soccer) fans who may want to catch the game away from a fixed TV, E-Ten says.

The V900 is also fully stocked for most other tasks and connects to the Internet over both HSDPA (3G) and Wi-Fi. A 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and GPS also round out the device. E-Ten delivers the phone in the second half of 2008 but has not said whether the phone will support either calling or data in the US, though no support is in place for the MediaFLO digital TV standard used in the country.

Also released today, the M810 is considered a minor upgrade to the M800, which centers around a slide-out QWERTY keboard for fast blogging and e-mail. It also shares HSDPA, GPS, and Wi-Fi as well as the 2-megapixel camera. Its release date has not been mentioned but should arrive largely in step with the V900.
