E-Ten phones at Computex
Cellphone maker E-Ten has debuted a trio of new Glofiish phones at the Taiwanese Computex expo. Leading these according to MobileBurn is the X900, a touchscreen device running the professional version of Windows Mobile 6.1. Although the device also has HSDPA broadband, its primary feature may be the style of touch control, which is said to resemble the TouchFLO interface used on HTC's Touch handsets. A difference is that the X900 uses 3D effects and large icons better suited to fingers.
The X610 shares this interface in common, but adds a GPS module, in exchange for dropping HSDPA. Instead users must rely on a quad-band GSM/EDGE connection for data.
The DX900 appears to be related to the X900, but concentrates on its dual-SIM support, which lets users keep two different phone numbers active at the same time. One for can be used for work calls, for instance, while another takes personal messages. It is even possible to operate data through one of the cards while the other simply handles voice. Other confirmed features of the DX include GPS, a Wi-Fi receiver, and a three-megapixel autofocus camera.
No prices or release dates have been announced for any of the three phones.
