Philips X800 e2e touchscreen phone now official

Philips has now officially launched its Xenium X800 e2e touchscreen phone, and successfully killed all the excitement riding behind it, as it is apparently lacking a lot of features that are in-demand nowadays. Toting only GPRS network support (Yes, 3G is a no-no and not even EDGE), 2 megapixel camera and ho-hum 2.9-inch screen, it doesn’t appear to be anywhere near the makings of an “iPhone Killer.”

Philips has not disclosed any details about pricing and availability as of this time’s writing, although the Xenium X800 handset is expected to be released exclusively for the Chinese market.
