|The G500 is the first Pocket PC Phone from E-TEN to have fully integrated GPS capabilities. The G500's embedded RoyalTek GPS module, featuring the SiRF Star III high sensitivity chipset and an innovative internal antenna design, means that PDA or phone owners who also regularly need to access GPS services, no longer have to carry additional accessories or even a separate GPS device when they travel.|
The dimensions of the device are 119 x 62 x 23mm which the company says is excellent since the phone is comparable in size to traditional handsets despite its GPS functionality. In addition to GSM phone and GPS functions, the device also serves as a high-specification PDA running Windows Mobile 5.0. The device uses a Samsung S3C2440 processor operating at 400 MHz and includes 128MB of Flash ROM and 64MB SDRAM memory, which can be used to save applications and files. The device uses a replicable 1,440mAh Li-Ion battery, which offers on average 3.5-4 hours of talk-time or 10-15 hours of Pocket PC usage. Finally, the G500 also features a 1.3M pixel CMOS camera and built in microphone allowing users to capture digital images, voice recordings, and even movies.
The primary display of the phone is 2.8" in size and has 65,000 colors. Additional memory is possible by using a mini SD card, slot for which has been provided. The G500 is a bit on the heavier side thanks to its large feature set and weighs nearly 186 grams.
