E-Ten M600+ Launched
The very popular E-TEN M600 has been updated to a plus version. Although the design of this Pocket PC stays the same, increased memory (256 MB of Flash ROM), an updated camera (2.0 MPx), and updated Windows Mobile 5.0 software (enabling ‘push’ email functionality on those systems with updated Exchange 2003 servers) round out an already impressive package.
The E-TEN M600+ sports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and quad-band GPRS cellular connectivity to enable this smartphone to connect nearly anywhere one needs to get connected.
Pricing is said to be reasonably higher than the current M600, and availability to all regions is soon-coming. Read more about the M600+ at E-Ten’s web site.
