Large VGA display
The Glofiish X800 features a new, large VGA (640×480) display offering up to four times the resolution of previous E-TEN handsets. With its increased screen-area the Glofiish X800 increases mobile productivity letting users display more of their documents, calendars, messages and spreadsheets onscreen at once.
Additionally, the Glofiish X800 makes mobile multimedia more enjoyable by allowing pictures and videoto be viewed in finer detail.
At just 113.5×60.5×15.8 mm, the Glofiish X800 maintains similar ultra-thin, pocket-friendly dimensions as E-TEN’s previous X-series model, as well as the all-in-one connectivity solution – GSM, Wi-Fi®, GPS and Bluetooth® – that has become a standard of Glofiish Pocket PC Phones. The device features two digital cameras, an auto-focus 2-megapixel version at the rear to capture high-quality photographs and
video, and a front-mounted VGA camera for video calling.
The Glofiish X800 is currently on show at the E-TEN booth (Hall 26 C67 ), at CeBIT 2007.
