E-TEN Glofiish to get Windows Mobile 6 upgrade

Glofiish X500

E-TEN has announced that it will provide Windows Mobile 6 upgrades for the Glofiish X500 and M700 Pocket PC Phones. These updates ensure owners of Glofiish devices will be able to enjoy the benefits of the Windows Mobile® 6 platform without the expense of having to purchase new hardware, according to Teresa Chou, Sales & Marketing Director, E-TEN.

The Glofiish X500 and M700 Pocket PC Phones offer all-in-one connectivity for consumers and professionals on the move. Both handsets include support for GSM, EDGE, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth® and include a 400MHz Samsung CPU and 128MB of Flash ROM. At just 15.55mm, the Glofiish X500 is one of the thinnest Pocket PC Phones available, while the Glofiish M700 includes the convenience of a sliding keyboard for easy and efficient editing, emailing, and messaging while mobile.

The upgrades will be available by download from the Glofiish web site starting in May. It’s not clear from the press release whether the upgrade will be available for free or not.
