Familiar-looking MS smartphone

Mobile phones

Here’s yet another microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 smartphone we haven’t seen before, yet curiously this one sports a rather familiar design.

Retailing for £500 without a contract the AnexTEK SP230 features a flip up/down keypad, which we reckon could well have been inspired by the Sony Ericsson P800/900.

According to the UK distributor Sword Services, the handset which boasts a 320×240 pixel screen with 65K colours, a 400Mhz Intel PXA22 processor and 64MB ROM and 64MB RAM is pitched up against current champ MS phone O2’s XDA 2.

While the phone boasts the usual microsoft applications like Outlook, Internet Explorer and Word, Sword has added a USP. It claims that the SP230 can be configured to receive live video transmissions from a security camera using its proprietary software.

Hope to have a review of this mobile very shortly.
