Philips announces X800 and X-Connect touchscreen phones

philips_touchscreen_phonesThere’s been a rumor floating around about Philips getting into the touchscreen cell phone business and yesterday they confirmed it when they announced the X800 and Xenium X-Connect.

Features of the X800 include:

  • Tri-band GSM/GPRS
  • 2.9-inch 262K color TFT touchscreen with a resolution of 240 x 400.
  • 2 megapixel auto focus camera
  • microSD memory card slot
  • Bluetooth
  • Handwriting recognition

I assume that also means that the X800 will use a stylus, but no official word on that yet as best I can tell.

Features of the higher-end Xenium X-Connect will include:

  • Running Windows Mobile 6 operating system
  • 3-inch display
  • GPRS/UMTS/HSDPA support

Not much else is known about the Xenium X-Connect yet except that it does NOT support Wi-Fi which surprised me a bit.

No pricing or release info yet.
