ETEN X500

 

Eten glofish X500是一款外型精緻的GPS手機,其厚度號稱是市面最薄的一款。內建Wi-Fi、藍芽2.0和第三代GPS晶片,也同樣有倚天自家許多方便的小程式。不過為了壓低售價,將車充車架列為選購,想要在車上導航的使用者要記得一起買車充車架。

薄型化設計、內建Wi-Fi/GPS、電力佳、使用miniUSB埠、隨附512MB micro SD卡

車架車充列為選購、非3G版本、2.8吋螢幕導航太小

Eten Glofiish X500 Review

 

The X500 is high-tech pocket assistant with great functionality. It brings wireless network and GPS navigation in slim stylish body with average size. Its 400MHz processor beats its rivals and its 2-megapixel camera is a good performer for this class....

Slimmest PPC with both GPS (with SirfStarIII chipset) and Wi-Fi built in (up to date) ; 400MHz Samsung processor ; High contrast and brightness display ; Long battery life

Uncomfortable D-pad ; Lack of 3G high-speed data ; Weak signal reception ; Incoming and outgoing sound quality not great

REVIEW: E-TEN Glofiish X500+ Windows Mobile 6 Professional Smartphone

 

When E-TEN announced its Glofiish X500+ back in March , it was a kind of sensation - is it one of the few Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Editions which comes standard-sized but with a VGA (480x640 pixel) screen. Furthermore, the Glofiish X500+ is an...

Eten glofiish X500+ Review

 

I believe users already got used to Eten's policy of launching updated "+" models that include advanced features compared with the initial devices. glofiish X500+ is one of these cases � an improved version of the last year Pocket PC device codenamed...

The main attraction of this device is by far the VGA display and nothing else. Probably the Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional could also be among the positive points of the device, but Eten has already offered the operating system free of charge for X500...

The lack of a QWERTY keyboard significantly limits the functionality of the device. In addition, the CPU is not powerful enough for the VGA display. Maybe Eten would better test its devices before launching them on the market. The Pocket PC is too slow...

E-TEN Glofiish X500+

 

As you might guess from the name, the E-TEN Glofiish X500+ is the near identical twin to the Glofiish X500 we reviewed in January 2007. It's a Windows Mobile 6 Professional (Pocket PC Phone) that's loaded to the max, including an internal GPS,...

VGA display, good GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth. Can save photos with latitude and longitude info

No 3G, camera color quality is poor

This absolutely feature-packed PDA phone delivers on nearly all fronts, with an excellent GPS, good VGA display, reliable unlocked quad band GSM phone, WiFi and strong Bluetooth. The camera and FM radio fall short, but the package as a whole is strong...

Let's Glofiishing with the X500

 

The Glofiish X500 is one of two debut devices in E-TEN's emerging Glofiish series, and looks can be deceiving. Despite being incredibly slim, the X500 manages to pack an incredible punch with integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and an FM radio. Is it...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE ; Integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and FM radio ; Slim form factor ; Blazing performance ; Bright display

No support for 3G ; microSD slot lacks protection ; Leather case is impractical ; No bundled navigation software ; Shipping ROMs 0273 and 0291 are riddled with bugs

E-TEN Glofiish X500

 

We've been a fan of E-TEN devices for their speed, great utility software bundle and value. The E-TEN M600 GSM Pocket PC phone was fast, compact and had both Bluetooth and WiFi. The E-TEN G500 GSM Pocket PC phone added an internal GPS but had no WiFi....

There's a lot to like about the Glofiish X500: it's a quad band world phone with good phone reception, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR, a strong GPS and good battery life. A few unpolished edges gnaw away at our star rating however: it looks and feels like a...
