E-Ten Launches X500 GPS PDA Phone

E-Ten Information Systems on October 30 launched its new GPS-enabled PDA phone, the Glofiish-branded X500, in the Taiwan market. Glofiish-branded products will also be launched in markets worldwide, said company sources.

The X500, which the company claims is the world's thinnest GPS-Wi-Fi pocket PC phone with a thickness of 1.55 cm, is powered by Microsoft's Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system (OS) and sports quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE capability and IEEE 802.11b and Bluetooth v2.0 connectivity.

E-Ten will continue to develop its own-brand products and has no plans to merge with large-scale IT companies, said company chairman Hwang Shan-rong, who presided over the launch of the X500.

Hwang made the remarks in response to market expectations that E-Ten is to merge with Quanta Computer after the notebook giant boosted its holdings to nearly 50% in GPS device maker RoyalTek in August. RoyalTek is a subsidiary of E-Ten.

Hwang predicted that the company's shipments of PDA devices and PDA phones will top 220,000-250,000 units in 2006, compared with 150,000 units it shipped in 2005.

The first one is 40-pin IFM (IDE Flash Module) which capacity has reached 4GB. Such memory is used by certain types of computing devices or specialist data devices for data transfers and storage.

The 40-pin IDE Flash Memory Modules are ideal for use in harsh environments where PCs, Set-Top Boxes, and other industrial machines are used. Transcendís IFM supports built-in ECC (Error Code Correction) function, Auto Sleep and Power Down modes.

The second is the external 120GB StoreJet 2.5" USB 2.0 hard drive, Titanic model.

The bundled software includes PC Lock, use it as a key to lock your computer; Security, compress and password-protect saved files using AEB encryption; My Documents; Mobile IE Favorites; Mobile Outlook Express; and Address Book Editor.

Finally, the third is 1GB microSD memory card that has data transfer speeds of up to 10MB/sec, and features only half the size of a mobile phone SIM card.
