Company's caps-lock key stuck?

The essential guide to IT transformation

Mobile device retailer Expansys has begun taking orders for the upcoming UBiQUiO 501 slimline Windows Mobile 5.0 smart phone. And no, that mix of capitals and lower-case characters isn't a byproduct of typing the vendor's name on its device's QWERTY micro-keyboard.

The handset is based on a 200MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 750 processor with 64MB of RAM and 128MB of ROM. It's got a 2.5in, 320 x 240, 65,536-colour display and a two megapixel camera. Carrier connectivity is limited to tri-band GSM/GPRS, but the 501 also has 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 1.2 on board - the latter with wireless stereo support.

That said, the 501 is a mere 1.4cm thick - just a few millimetres thick than Motorola's Q, which is sold as the world's thinnest QWERTY keyboard-equipped smart phone. The 501 contains a 1,250mAh battery.

The 501 will cost £300 SIM-free when it ships. Expansys is taking orders now via its website. ®
