Philips E100, a low-end music phone

Philips E100, a low-end music phone
After the introduction of their latest device, the Xenium X600, which was designed to have a long battery life, Philips came up with another music phone, releasing the new E100. As a matter of fact, Philips cell phones aren’t exactly ground breaking other than the fact that many of their handsets tout superior battery life as the main selling point. This means that many of those devices’ features are revolutionary, therefore nor up-to-date. The E100 is a low-end handset in a candybar design and features only the bare basics, so you shouldn’t expect even a VGA camera to come with it.

A budget minded mobile handset that should come with a reasonable price tag, the Philips E100 brings simplicity into the mobile world with its 1.8 inches 65k display, featuring a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels, enough for personalizing it with screensavers and wallpapers.

Among this phone’s features are included: an integrated FM radio, GSM / GPRS support, a WAP 2.0 / xHTML browser, a clock, an alarm, a calculator, a calendar, voice memo, T9 and handsfree. As far as the music lovers are concerned, there is an MP3 playback option, the device being able to recognize MP3 / WAV / AAC formats.

You might be disappointed by the fact that the E100 has a whopping 2MB of integrated memory (yes, you’ve read it right, I said megabytes), but you’ve got the possibility of increasing the storage due to the microSD card slot (TransFlash) of up to 2GB (this is one compulsory feature, if you ask me, as the internal memory is so… rudimentary).

The Philips E100 measures 104 x 44 x 13.7 millimeters and weighs 75 grams and it’s expected to be available this month at a price around $60 in selected retail stores. As I’ve said it before, the phone it’s a music dedicated one, so it doesn’t come with a camera. It might not catch your eye whatsoever, unless you’re looking for a simple standard device.
