Now the Glofiish was announced last summer… apparently. To be honest, the name doesn’t stand out in my memory. Anyhow, the handset failed to materialise and it looked like the Glofiish was to glow no more!
E-TEN have now been taken over by Acer. We lover Acer, right? And according to Clove Technology, the little Glofiish is being reinvented as the Acer DX900.
The DX900 is a dual-SIM, touch-screen smartphone. The first SIM slot being tri-band UMTS/3.5G, with quad-band GSM support. The second is only tri-band GSM, with no 3G support.
The handset runs on a 533MHz Samsung S3C 6400 processor, has 128MB RAM, 256MB ROM and runs on a 1530mAh battery. It comes with built in GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, mini-USB, microSD slot, TV-out functionality and a headset audio jack.
It uses Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system and comes with the usual office mobile tools and applications; Microsoft Office Mobile, Microsoft Office Outlook Mobile, Internet Explorer Mobile, MSN Messenger, Windows Live, Windows Media Player 10 and much more. It is also enhanced with extra Acer/E-TEN applications and tools for ease of use.
It features a 3.0 megapixel camera with autofocus and a secondary 0.3 megapixel front facing camera.
The phone itself measures 106x61x17mm and it weighs 147 grams. It has a nice, large 2.8inch high quality VGA screen (640x480pixel).
With a pretty hefty price tag of £454, how popular will this smartphone be? Pre-order the Acer DX900 now at Clove Technology. They are expecting the handset to arrive late February.
