Philips touch screen phone

Philips is preparing to launch two high-end touchscreen phones - the X800 and Xenium X-Connect - which feature large color screens and several luxury features. The X800 offers users a tri-band GSM/GPRS platform, which uses a 2.9 inch touch screen to display information, with a screen resolution of 240 by 400 pixels. It also features handwriting recognition, a 2MP autofocus camera, a MicroSD slot, Bluetooth, and an office document reader. Battery life for the unit sits at 850 hours standby, and 8 hours of talk time.

The Xenium X-Connect features Windows Mobile 6, and offers a larger 3-inch display. It will not feature WiFi, but will connect to GPRS, UMTS, and HSDPA networks. A built-in GPS receiver is also included, as well as Bluetooth, USB, and a MicroSD card slot.

Philips unfortunately has not released specifications or pricing.
