ETEN G500 review


The target market for the G500 are users who want in-car navigation, Pocket PC and phone in one device. The device combines all the necessary features needed - superb GPS functionality, thanks to the SIRF III chipsets; Windows Mobile 5 operating system...

Efficient data processing (Mobile Office) ; Excellent Built-in SIRF III based GPS ; Management helper (Calendar, Tasks, Alarms, Voice Commands) ; Sales package includes car mount and charger for quick setup of the G500 as in-car navigation ; Fast...

Requires knowledge about PCs & software (if you want to use all of its potential) ; Lacks high speed data such as EDGE ; Memory expansion slot is miniSD; if you want WI-FI add-on card it will cost more compared to SD cards

I want to remind you that this is a sophisticated device and it is one of great complexity, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it means that it requires a higher commitment level from its user. If you are not familiar with using a PC or with the...

E-ten G500+ Review


The Taiwanese company E-Ten, a not so important Asian mobile manufacturer, has announced the G500+ in the second quarter of this year. The device wanted to be an updated version of the earlier G500 Pocket PC, featuring more internal memory (256 MB),...

Probably, the most obvious would be the lack of WiFi for such a new device. But that wouldn't be such a tragedy, unless the device lacks also EDGE or UMTS. Only with GPRS connectivity, the device will just reach data speeds of 30kb the max. Other than...

E-TEN G500 - Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone plus GPSReview by Mobile Tech Review


It was a dark and stormy night. . . you're driving in an unknown place. Looking for that hotel where you'll check in for a good night's sleep before an important morning meeting. Who you gonna call and how? With E-TEN's G500 Windows Mobile Pocket PC...

Excellent SiRF Star III GPS. Quad band GSM world phone that's unlocked for use with any carrier. Fast performer, great display and good build quality. Nice bundle of accessories in the box, and excellent E-TEN value-added software. Good battery life

No EDGE for data, only the slower GPRS. No WiFi

Clone the solid E-TEN M600, graft on a GPS and remove WiFi and you've got the G500. For those who need a triple convergence device (PDA, phone and GPS) the E-TEN is an excellent choice. In terms of screen real estate, speed and OS version, the G500...
