E-TEN Information Systems has released details of the company's
upcoming plans for the Pocket PC Phone market. Highlights of the
announcement include an all new case design that is considerably
thinner than current products; upgraded communications with support
for faster protocols and standards; and the ability to combine both GPS
and Wi-Fi? capabilities in a single device.
E-TEN has developed a reputation for creating high-performance, full-featured
Pocket PC Phones that have proven popular in both consumer and business
markets. Its two most recent releases, the G500+ with built-in GPS and the
M600+ supporting Wi-Fi?, currently set the standard for Pocket PC Phone
specifications with their fast 400MHz Samsung processor and huge 256MB of
E-TEN?s thinnest design yet
For their next release E-TEN designers have developed a new case which is only 15.5mm thick.
Combined with the company's innovative internal antenna design, the case promises to make

E-TEN in the running to claim the title, "World's thinnest Pocket PC Phone" with both WiFi &
GPS built in.
While previous E-TEN Pocket PC Phones featured GPRS allowing users to access the Internet,
send and receive emails, and access other data services wirelessly, the glofiish X500 goes even

For many the ideal mobile device would combine phone and GPRS capabilities for voice and
data on the move; Wi-Fi? for high-speed Internet and LAN connectivity; and GPS satellite
communications for easy navigation and travel. The glofiish X500 delivers all these functions as
well as Bluetooth? 2.0, multimedia video and audio capabilities, and a 2 mega-pixel camera
and (thanks to a high-performance 400MHz processor) even allows users to access multiple
features or applications simultaneously making it the ultimate all-in-one device for both
businesses and consumers.
The glofiish X500 is scheduled to launch in November 2006.
