One of the lesser known enhancements in Windows Mobile 2003 SE is that it brought support for QVGA (240-by-320-pixel) displays to the smartphone version of this operating system. However, no company has yet released a device that takes advantage of this feature.
That may soon change if a Taiwanese company name NewGen can get the D2000W on the market in the near future.
According to iDNES.cz, this model will use a traditional tablet design, plus it will sport a keypad that is exposed when the display slides up.
Even though this device will have a QVGA screen like many Pocket PCs, this won’t be a touchscreen.
In addition to being a tri-band (900/1800/1900 MHz) GSM/GPRS device, the D2000W will offer Wi-Fi. Curiously, it will not include Bluetooth.
It will use a 400 MHz Intel XScale PXA272 processor. It will have an impressive 128 MB of memory, plus a miniSD slot for extra storage.
One of this model’s more unusual features is a built-in FM radio. Like most smartphones, it will have a camera, in this case a 1.3 megapixel one.
NewGen says it will last for up to 4 hours of talk-time or 100 hours of stand-by time.
It is not known when or where the D2000W will be released, or what it will cost.
