Eten VGA Device next year

As I mentioned in my previous post, I just got back from the Eten press conference.

One subject that was raised was the inclusion of VGA screens on their devices. According to Teresa Chou, Eten’s sales and marketing director, Eten will be releasing a Windows Mobile PocketPC device with a VGA screen sometime next year. What’s more, the device will be 3G and be the same size as existing Glofiish devices – the VGA display will be a 2.8″ unit.

A 2.8″ VGA unit will be sweet for sure!

Eten Glofiish M700

EDIT: You can now purchase the ETEN M700 from clove and with our offer you can save £25 on the purchase price! See this post for more info.

I just got back from the Eten X500 UK product launch press conference where I took this rather ropey photo of the Eten Glofiish M700.

M700

Pretty impressed with the device, it’s pretty light and compared to the HTC TyTN it’s pretty damn thin.

Find out about ordering the device HERE.

Keep your eyes on MoDaCo where Paul will have some better photos (He remembered to take a camera!).

    Orange M3100/HTC TyTN camera issues

    Over the past week I’ve had no less than four people email me about problems that they are having with the camera on their HTC TyTN or Orange M3100.

    HTC TyTN Camera

    According to their reports, when trying to use the camera they are presented with the following error message: “Can not start camera! Can not start camera!” (the message is repeated twice) and then the camera application quits.

    Apparantly the problem is not resolved by rebooting the handset.

    I’d like to hear from anyone else that’s experiencing this problem especially if you know how to resolve it! Not having seen this problem myself I’m not able to offer any advice, I’m assuming that a hard reset would cure it but that seems rather drastic.
