ITG show off the xpPhone

xpPhoneWith Smartphonesbeing increasingly dominant on the mobile market we are expecting our phones to be faster and more powerful than ever! China-based manufacturer ITG has launched their distinctive xpPhone that looks more like a tablet than a mobile phone. With a huge 4.8 touchscreen, QWERTY keyboard, AMD processor, 512MB or 1GB RAM and both SSD and HDD storage the xpPhone is much more powerful than a smartphone. It’s more like a netbook that runs Windows XP with phone capabilities.
 
The xpPhone is easy to use with the great 4.8 inch touchscreen and slide out QWERTY keyboard as well as a D-pad on the left next to two mouse buttons and numpad on the right as well as a small touchpad. ITG says the xpPhone offers the “full internet experience” with Wi-Fi, quad-band GSM or CDMA, HSDPA/HSUPA thanks to the built-in 3G modem, Bluetooth, GPS and optional WiMax. Three modem versions are on offer – “Vodafone”, “AT&T” and “Orange” – though there’s no indication of which bands each choice provides.
 
Unfortunately ITG has only put a 1.3 megapixel camera on board which is disappointing but if you plan on using this phone purely for business then it is not too much of a worry! If you are worried about battery life the xpPhone gives you 5 hours of talk time or 5 days of standby time with the regular netbook giving you 7 to 12 hours of power autonomy. Rumoured measurements are about 158 x 75 x 16 mm making it a pretty hefty phone…but a handy netbook.
 

The ITG xpPhone will be available in white, red and black but we are unsure of the the price and release date at the moment.

If you can’t wait for this phone Mobilesplease has a great range of smartphones available including the Nokia N97.
