E-TEN has recently announced and made available the Glofiish X500+ Windows Mobile 6 Professional Smartphone. This cool looking VGA Pocket PC Phone Edition features Windows Mobile 6 and the VGA screen i am sure that using it will be a pleasure. Arne Hess from the::unwired has made a Photoview of this sleek device and said This unique VGA Pocket PC Phone Edition features Windows Mobile 6 and the VGA screen definitely benefits from Microsoft's latest Windows Mobile version since the 2.8" screen looks crispy and makes it using it a pleasure. The housing is a kind of soft-touch finishing (similar to the Samsung SGH-i600/BlackJack or HTC Excalibur) which definitely feels nice and keeps the device safely in the hand as well as it keeps away finger prints.

The recently announced E-TEN x500 Glofiish has come in new shape. It has ben rebranded by Pharos as the Pharos GPS Phone.
Dubbed GPS Phone (we really think calling it The GPS Phone would be much more potent), it's got all the specs we knew this phone was packing, including: SiRFStarIII GPS receiver (duh) with Pharos Ostia nav software, quad-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE (sigh), WiFi, Bluetooth, a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio (o rly!), and a friggin fat $699 price tag. Now, we're not necessarily saying $700 for a GPS-equipped Pocket PC is too much, but we really do wish they could have shaved $5 off the top of that margin and dropped in a damned UMTS / HSDPA radio, you know?
