ITG’s XP Phone to be Priced Like Smart Phones

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

ITG xpPhone 2When you have £500 to spare, would you rather buy a mini laptop or a smart phone?

The big net books over smart phones argument have been over and done with a dozen times, and more often than not, the best agreeable solution is to buy a decent net book and a really cheap phone –on the average at least. For people who simply need to access social networking sites, a good high-end smart phone would do the trick; when it boils down to individual tastes (like it always does), it becomes more of selecting one specialized gadget to combo with a cheap one.

Anyway, for people who still cannot decide, ITG is now providing a more amiable solution to the question: by providing a net book phone.

Yep, after several months, the ITG XP Phone has surfaced again; ITG is still willing to create custom spec devices and the given bundles looks pretty close to a mobile phone in terms of size, and a really low end net book in terms of specs.

The XP phone is expected to come at a price of 280 to 450 Euros, depending on the spec configuration as users will have a choice of hardware options for the device. RAM will come in 512 MB, 1GB and 2GB variants. The device will have a solid state drive that will range from 8 to 64GB as well as a separate hard drive ranging from 30GB to 120GB.

While it has not been confirmed if the processor can also be customizable, the device will run on an AMD CPU. For the screen, users can choose between 4.3, 4.8 and 7 inches; all of which are touch screens. It was also originally announced that device would have an onboard camera.

Of course, since XP does not have software for voice calls and other mobile phone features, the device will have a separate interface for those features.

Pre Orders Begin For ITG xpPhone

ITG xpPhoneThe ITG xpPhone, recently seen online at GSM Arena, is now available for preorder.

For those of you unaware of the impressive mobile phone handset, it is a very powerful little device that looks a lot more like a tablet than a phone; it is superbly slim with an attractive design and a keyboard that, frankly, you would never know was there.

It has a very impressive 4.8 inch touch screen, the full QWERTY keyboard gives a new meaning to “full keyboard” as it features a number pad, the option of 512MB or 1GB RAM and allows for both HDD and SSD storage.

ITG is a China based manufacturer, and although some people have labelled this latest product yet another iPhone rip off, I beg to differ. It is a powerful device far out of the league of even a high end smartphone, and in terms of sheer power it may as well be a miniature netbook – and one of the more impressive ones, at that.

Included with the phone is the option of a HDD ranging in size from 30GB to 120GB, it boasts a USB port as well as VGA. It also has an inbuilt camera, although only 1.3 mega pixels; but really, no one uses there netbook for taking photos.

It also features GPS, a small track pad for a true netbook feel and both a left and right mouse button. Naturally it supports Wi Fi and sports its own inbuilt 3G modem, as well as an option for Bluetooth connectivity.

It is without a doubt the most innovative and user friendly mobile phone to come out of China this year – to the extent that were it made by a larger US based company it would have unlimited potential in both the mobile phone and netbook markets.
