Eten X800 Review


In 2007 we noticed stronger presence of different Windows Mobile based phones. The model we are about to introduce in this review, Eten X800, is one of them. Arriving as the high-end model of Eten, it is the first 3G phone produced by the Taiwanese...

E-TEN glofiish X800 Review


The glofiish X800 can be considered the spiritual successor of the X500+, which was the first Pocket PC released by the Taiwanese manufacturer E-TEN to feature a VGA screen. The PDA follows the "cram-all-you-can-inside" philosophy and is clearly the...

The X800 includes some pretty good specifications. First of all, the VGA display really improves the graphics. Second, the connectivity options cover the full range. And third comes the GPS receiver to complete the picture. Other than these, the...

Unfortunately, the main improvement brought by the X800 � the VGA display � is also one of its biggest drawbacks. Even though the processor is a capable one, running at 500 Mhz, it simply cannot keep up, making the device act excruciatingly slow at...

E-TEN Glofiish X800 with Windows Mobile 6 Professional


There haven't been too many Windows Mobile devices to come around with a VGA (480x640) screen. It's always been an issue of cost - adding a screen

VGA screen ; GPS/HSDPA/WiFi ; Relatively thin

Slow ; Only 48MB usable program memory ; Buggy ; No scroll wheel ; Battery life isn't great ; Expensive

If this phone was friendlier to me, meaning, it was faster, had more program memory, and didn't require a hard-reset (twice!), I'd be mildly excited about it. But because its overall usability is significantly debased by the slowness and bugs, and...

E-TEN X800 Blog 2: Wi-Fi = No-Fi


One of the biggest draws to all of E-TEN's devices is their radio offerings.  Since the very beginning of my association with them, they've had just about ever method of connectivity known to man jammed in their device offerings: Quad-Band GSM EDGE...

E-TEN Glofiish X800 - Windows Mobile Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review


HTC virtually owns the Windows Mobile Pocket PC phone market here in the US. But manufacturers like E-TEN are hot in pursuit, and E-TEN's Windows Mobile Pocket PC phones get better with every iteration. They offer a few things that competing HTC phones...

Every feature under the sun in one relatively compact and slim device. Superb GPS gets a fix relatively quickly and holds onto it, even under heavily overcast skies. The camera is quite good for still shots. Excellent multimedia performance-- handles...

Slim RAM hobbles performance at times. Poor video recording quality

The X800 is a formidable Windows Mobile Professional phone that packs every available technology and feature into a relatively portable device. Even more important, each feature works well from the excellent GPS to WiFi to Bluetooth to the autofocus...

E-TEN X800 Blog 1: Radio Reception


Over the past week or so, I've been putting the E-TEN X800 through its paces. Having owned or used the M500, G500, and M700, I thought I knew what to expect with the X800.  The GSM radios in all three of those quad-band GSM phones left a great deal to...
