E-TEN Glofiish X500 review

One of the first reviews of the E-TEN Glofiish X500 GPS PPC Phone has appeared on PPC Singapore.

Note: it’s Glofiish not Glofish – this fish has two i’s!

The E-TEN Glofiish X500 Pocket Phone has built-in GPS. The device also features a slim and light design (just 15.5mm thick), sensitive GPS receiver and FM radio, but lacks 3G connectivity. However it does have AKU3.2.
