Sound quality to me is great with the speakers on... not sure how it compares to 3250 but it is very decent IMO.
One thing i'm not used to is that the stylus is actually at the bottom. i'm more used to getting the stylus out from the top.. well it's just egornomics i guess.
Fragile? I dont think so. I got my x500+ 2 days ago and the built is similar to a typical PPC phone, so please do not mislead the rest.
So far this product is working pretty well and
of cos the most appealing factor is the resolution. Performance wise, so to say that it will definitely not please fussy customer. Do not expect instant response from the set, especially if you try to use it after having it sat on the table for some time. Phone calls perfect except some echos which i heard is due to WM6.
The SMS function does not come with the 'keypad' interface (like the dial pad on your home phone) but you can download something similar to make up for it.
I give it 8/10.
Worst device I ever owned. All Eten Pocket PCs are very fragile. The construction of the device isn't as solid as HTC Pocket PCs.
My X500 LCD screen broke. Does anyone know if I can replace it by the X500+ VGA LCD? Thanks.
YEs ,it is possible to install tomtom! I install it ,the only thing is that with a VGA screen the streetnames are smaller than on Qvga
For the rest everything works perfect!!
This thing was supposed to be out late may early june!!!! What happend?? When will it really be available?
It costs about 770-800 USD. Available in Russia. http://price.ru/bin/price/prodlist?curr=2&pnam=E-Ten%20Glofiish%20X500%20plus%20&base=1&shlop=2&vcid=01010401&where=00&cid=2801
Camera is so-so. Nobody is expected it to be perfect.
Why only 64MB SDRAM? 64k screen? Eten wake Up!!! We should wait for X500++ :)
And what I think is especially cool is that the microSD card is hot-swappable which is a warmly welcomed feature bearing in mind that the max. supported size is only 2 GB.
The phone will be issued only in black. It should be available in June, but as you see, it still isn't. There is no info about the price. Everything is cool, just the battery lasts about 30% shorter, the camera is not so good and the GPS is slow in getting a "fix". It supports stereo blue tooth handsfree. That's the essence, if you have "time to lose", you can read everything here:
btw it's quite the only review I could google out in the short time I have.
When will this phone be released?? I heard that is was supposed to be out in May (www.pdadb.net) but it has not been released yet.
is it possible to see on sunlight , especailly with GPS, when it is just 65K screen??
This is the real difference:
+ model: 640 x 480 pixels, 2.8 inches
standard model: 240 x 320
Eten glofiish X500+ has VGA (480 x 640) screen. Makes a huge difference for PDA/GPS applications...
