Philips X800

Philips has official announced the touchscreen based X800 (pictured above) and Xenium X-Connect (pictured below) handsets. The X-Connect aims a little more at the high end of the spectrum, while the X800 seems to have a nicer look than feature set.

The X800 will feature a 2.9-inch display with a 240 x 400 resolution, 2-megapixel camera, microSD card slot and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity. Sadly even with the nice look and touchscreen, the X800 is lacking some important connectivity, namely EDGE or Wi-Fi, instead it gives just 2G GSM for all your data needs. The X800 will allow you send or receive both SMS and MMS messages but the mobile web browsing is limited, not only by the previously mentioned 2G coverage, but the WAP 2.0 browsing experience.

The Xenium X-Connect on the other hand seems to be a welcomed handset. The X-Connect will feature a slightly larger 3-inch touchscreen display and have much more as far as connectivity. The X-Connect will include support for GPRS, UMTS and HSDPA, but is still lacking the Wi-Fi. In addition it will also have Bluetooth, USB, a microSD card slot, integrated GPS and is running Windows Mobile 6.

Still unclear for both the X800 and Xenium X-Connect are pricing and availability dates.
