    ETEN G500 review

    Nedge2k over at MSMobileNews has just posted a great review of the ETEN G500.

    ETEN G500

    The ETEN G500 is was one of the first devices to include a built in GPS unit.

    In what will be the last review nedge2k does for MSMobileNews he has this to say of the G500:

    “The first thing that strikes you about this device when you get it out of the box is its size. When you see pictures of it, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s huge when in reality it’s a pretty average size. Packed inside the G500 you can find an SiRF Star III GPS chipset (with TMC), 400Mhz Samsung CPU, 1.3MP camera, 2.8” QVGA TFT touchscreen, Bluetooth 2.0, Quadband GSM, 128MB of user memory (256MB on the G500+), FM radio (with RDS!) and a miniSD slot.”

    “This phone is one hell of a mixed bag; so many good points but at the same time, quite a few bad ones. It has some really great hardware but then gets let down by poor build quality. It has handy, well thought out applications that get let down by what I hope are just mistakes/oversights.”

    Read the whole review on MSMobileNews.
