This device, called the glofiish X500, will be only 0.6 inches (15.5 mm) thick, and have no need of an external antenna.

Aside from this, though, this handheld will use the traditional tablet design, without a built-in keyboard. It will include a 2.8-inch, QVGA screen.

The X500 will run Windows Mobile 5 for Pocket PC on a 400 MHz processor. This means it will come with this platforms standard suite of PIM applications, as well as support for working with Microsoft Office documents.

It will have 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of internal storage.

In addition to being a GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone, this model will have  Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0.

Its GPS functions will be handled by a SiRF Star III chipset.

This device will also include a 2.0 megapixel camera and a microSD card slot.

The glofiish X500 is scheduled to launch in November. E-TEN has not yet said where it will be available or what it will cost. 

More information is available on the E-TEN web site.
