This is the true focus of this device. A Video, Mp3 Player and Gaming Machine. It uses the Xscale processor to great advantage in rendering video and 3D Java games with a smoothness and detail I have not experienced before in a convergence device. Although my iMate will playback encoded movies just like a DVD player...it is not capable of playing the Java games that are used on the e680. Forget trying to get this kind of performance from UIQ in either the P910/900. Nothing can makeup for clock cycles...and the e680 simply smokes the Symbian offerings at this time.

The e680 comes loaded with tons of games preinstalled. Some of them are in Chinese and I did not try to play them, some of them were GPRS games that I did not understand, and some of them were not only very American, but fun for me to play....All of them though were extremely pretty to look at on the screen. Highly responsive, and very "Playable"...

The e680 plays Mpg4 files using the bundled "RealPlayer".... Playback on the screen is very smooth and easy. High bit-rate movies can be easily played due to the processor speed and available RAM of the device....

Stereo Sound is played through the e680's stereo speakers or the provided stereo headset....

Use of the SD card will enable the user to store tons of Mp3 songs or up to 10 full length movies on one 1GB card for playback at any time.

The e680 contains a VGA camera with 8X Digital Zoom and video capture ability as well...

Photo quality was very good in my opinion for a device of this type...

With a 300mhz Xscale processor, advanced Java and 3D gaming engine, 3D stereo speakers, 65K touch screen, and 1GB of external storage available.....there is no question that the e680 is intended as a MultiMedia Player/Phone. It renders video and games as well as a super powerful Pocket PC, but is half the size..
