Easy Keyboard

Messaging

Different message types are placed in a single menu - SMS, MMS and e-mails. There is nothing unexpected here. Entering text is done by one of the following touch display methods:

  • Block Recognizer
  • Keyboard
  • Letter Recognizer
  • Transcriber

We think that the on-screen keyboard is the fastest and most convenient way to do it, but if you train the other methods, they can also be quite handy! Combined with the T9 predictive system, entering text with the phone is pretty quick.

In addition comes Easy Keyboard that is a variation of the standard on-screen keyboard, but not a very impressive one.


Connectivity - Eten X600 Review

Connectivity

Connectivity:


The X600 is a quad-band phone, which makes it usable on every continent. Unfortunately the new Eten lacks 3G support, which nowadays is a big drawback.

WiFi and Bluetooth come standard. Bluetooth is mainly used for connecting to other nearby devices, as accessories (earpieces, car-kits, multimedia devices) and for data transfer (transfer of files to/from


Internet:

The mobile version of Internet Explorer is used for internet browsing and loading standard pages in full size is not a problem but you have to scroll horizontally as well as vertically almost all the time. Full-screen usage is almost mandatory when the page has loaded.

Internet Browser


There is also One Column View option which eliminates the need for horizontal scrolling, but increases the need for vertical scrolling. The page is narrowed, thus changing its initial look.

As it is a Pocket PC, you can always use third party software to replace the original one. We prefer using another phone/PC). Cable connection can also be used, via the miniUSB port.

Like all other Windows phones, you need to have ActiveSync installed on the computer to connect to it. The program will let you easily synchronize the phone (contacts, emails, and organizer) with Outlook.

With WiFi you can connect to a wireless LAN network covering you, use it as an Internet source and view the shared documents (input \\name-of-computer in Internet Explorer and you will see what is shared).

As it is a Pocket PC, you can always use third party software to replace the original one. We prefer using MicroSoft Deepfish browser instead of Internet Explorer, but unfortunately it is still in beta mode.
