Touchscreen Philips X800 approved by the FCC

Touchscreen Philips X800 approved by the FCC
In the beginning of the month, the first evidence of a touchscreen Philips phone (the X800) appeared, thanks to leaked pictures. A week after that, another rendered image of what may be called the X-Connect and become the company’s first smartphone, showed. Although some sites claimed these got officially announced, there was no word from Philips itself.

Today, we got the first solid confirmation of the X800, thanks to its FCC approval. Since its manual mentions Chinese characters input and Chinese-English dictionary, we assume it will be designated to that market. Earlier information that it lacks EDGE was wrong, but it really doesn’t support 3G or WiFi.

The large touch display most probably has 240x400 pixels resolution and the camera is 2-megapixel. The memory is expanded through microSD cards (slot under the battery) and the interface is as the one on the leaked pictures, which looks nice.

An official announcement is still to come.
