E-TEN X650 Unboxing

I arrived home the other day, to a WONDERFUL surprise. E-TEN’s X650 arrived! I wasn’t even expecting it, and its here!  The E-TEN X650 is the upgrade to E-TEN’s X600, value series GPS enabled Pocket PC Phone.  Its running WM6 Professional, and has a VGA screen (the X600 did not). Without much further ado, here are the very cool pics…

The box the X650 comes in is even smaller than the box for the X800.  I was really surprised.

Open the top of the box, and there is the X650. E-TEN was nice enough to send me the X650 in purple (likely to be the most popular color). The purple is a bit on the unusual side.  Its not very bright, or very noticeable, so while the purple is likely to be more popular with the ladies, its not horrible for a guy to carry…though it is a bit of an attention grabber.

The pictures here really show off the purple color of the X650. It really doesn’t look this purple. Its more of a dark, blackish-purple.

The X650’s initial boot screen. It has the same ROM date as the X800 (I think)… The MS boot screen.

Things at the office have picked up a bit for me, and I am off on a business trip next week. I’ll have the X650 with me, as I am currently work through a couple of issues with the X800 with E-TEN. I’ll have more on how it functions in a different city next week as time permits. If anyone has any questions about the X650 or the X800, feel free to give me a shout and I’ll do my best to answer them quickly.  More posts on both devices to come, so stay tuned!
