E-TEN to offer Windows Mobile 6 upgrades to Glofiish Pocket PC Phone owners
Shows commitment to support and long-term value to its customers

E-TEN Information Systems has announced that it will offer owners of its own-brand Glofiish X500 and M700 Pocket PC Phones the ability to upgrade to Windows Mobile 6, the latest platform for mobile devices. The upgrades will be delivered via downloads which will be available from the Glofiish website. The updates are currently scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2007.

E-TEN has revealed that it is working to deliver a series of language-localized ROM updates that will allow owners of Glofiish X500 and M700 Pocket PC Phones to upgrade their devices to Windows Mobile 6. The first of the updates are expected to be released in May. "As a leading designer and supplier of Pocket PC Phones for both business and leisure, E-TEN is committed to delivering both the latest technological innovations as well as long-term value to its customers." said Teresa Chou, Sales & Marketing Director, E-TEN, "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."

Windows Mobile 6 is the latest mobile operating platform from Microsoft which offers improved usability and functions, and adds rich features that make working with documents and email on the go more rewarding. The benefits of Windows Mobile 6 include a new user-interface, and improved integration with desktop and notebook PCs running Windows Vista or XP. Additionally, the platform has been refined to make better use of hardware resources, including CPU and memory, and offers support for new services including Direct Push technology and VoIP (voice over IP).

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. Both devices are available now from official E-TEN distributors around the world.

“With this announcement, E-TEN customers will be able to experience the new features of Windows Mobile 6 which improves the access to critical information and data on a mobile device, and delivers to the small screen a familiar and rich experience that meets the needs of work and life on the go.” said Marianne Röling, EMEA Director, Mobile Communications Business, Microsoft.
