ITG announces official xpPhone prices

Itg_xpphone_price

Over the past few months, we've come to know quite a bit about the ITG xpPhone. Most recently we watched as incoming phone calls awoke the XP-running device from standby, and before that we saw the unit's communications interface, learned of its configuration options, and even checked out the preorder form that let us choose a 3G module that would work on AT&T, Orange, or Vodafone. We also found out that AMD executives have already had a hands-on and that the company's Global VP of Embedded Sales recommended that his colleagues use the xpPhone instead of an iPhone or BlackBerry.

Today comes news directly from ITG's export sales manager that another bit of info is now ready for its big reveal: price. The exact details will be fleshed out on the xpPhone website soon, but what has been disclosed in an email so far is that the MID phone slider will start at 2999 RMB (~$439) and top out at 4500 RMB (~$659). Not bad for what you're getting. Not bad at all.

  • The price is pretty bad if this thing really does have the AMD Geode LX CPU which uses DDR1 RAM. It may perform well for a phone but not so well as a UMPC/MID unless all you do is browser the internet a couple tabs at a time. If so, then a smartphone is a better device.

    I wonder what happens if your browsing a bloated website or a low quality flash video (only the lowest quality flash video will probably play okay) and a call comes in. Will the browser still be maxing out your CPU during the call?

    I wonder, does the $400USD – $650USD include the customizable XPINSIDE models? Since only the XPINSIDE offers options for 2gb ram, and cpu speed > 1ghz…or so as it looks like that way on the XPPHONE official webpage…
