For some people, a full keyboard will probably be enough to make this worthy of a second look, esepcially if you like to send numerous sms and email messages or edit documents on the move. And with that keyboard sliding, it means less bulk in your bag. Software is Windows Mobile 5.0, so everything you’d expect there, including push email and use of a full Microsoft Office suite.
The M700 supports GSM, GPRS and EDGE, plus Wi-Fi connectivity if you’re in range of a network. There’s also GPS via an embedded SiRF Star III chipset and a range of E-Ten software, including several phone and messaging tools, camera and image editing software and an FM tuner.
The Glofiish M700 should be available by mid-December from Expansys, price to be confirmed.
