E-Ten Glofiish X500 GPS smart phone

Lean, mean location-tracking machine?

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Along the right edge you'll find the main power button, reset button and another to trigger the two megapixel camera that's built into the back of the casing. Image quality from the camera is reasonable, but shots taken with the integrated flash always seemed blurred. The camera also records videos in 3GP format, but at just 15fps the clips appear quite jerky, especially when shooting scenes with lots of movement.

The volume controls are on the left-hand edge, alongside the record button, which also doubles-up as a hot key for Voice Commander, E-Ten's voice activation utility. A 2.5mm stereo headphone jack is present too, with a pair of stereo headphones and microphone supplied in the box. Bear in mind that an adaptor isn't included should you want to use your favourite 3.5mm hi-fi headphones.

The X500 is powered by a 400MHz Samsung SC3 2442 CPU that seemed to handle most tasks with relative ease. With 64MB of RAM built in and 128MB of Flash ROM there's enough space to back-up important data while out of the office. If you need more storage, a MicroSD card slot can be found along the bottom edge of the case. Next to this is the mini USB connector for charging and syncing with your PC, and the home for the telescopic stylus.
