E-Ten

E-Ten has released an update to its pocket PC phone line, which some blogs are calling the slimmest handset of its kind in the world.

The X500 Glofiish--yes, it's really called the Glofiish--combines both Bluetooth 2.0 video and audio capabilities, 802.11b/g WiFi and an EDGE radio. The .6-inch thin phone, which operates on the Windows Mobile 5.0 platform, contains a 2-megapixel camera, a 400MHz Samsung processor, 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM of storage, and a slot for a microSD card.

While the E-Ten announced the X500 a few weeks ago, Mobility Site pointed out today's launch.
