In Technology Group's export sales manager got in touch today to let me know that the calling/communications user interface of the upcoming xpPhone is now ready for public viewing.
The MID phone, which has a 4.8" WVGA touchscreen and will run Windows XP on an unspecified AMD processor upon release, features sync-free access to Outlook contacts and a removable wireless module for easy replacement and upgrades to other 3G and future 4G connectivity standards, making it even more unlike all of the smartphones that are currently on the market. This is why ITG believes the device is a breakthrough product and describes it as a "three-in-one pocketable mobile terminal" that combines a mobile phone, handheld computer, and GPS unit into a portable unit that weighs 14.1 ounces in its current state (the final version will most likely be thinner and lighter).
The xpPhone is still without a firm release date and price, so this isn't the last we'll see and hear of it. In the meantime, have a look at communications UI below.
