PhoneArena just posted an intensive review of the ETEN G500 / Torq N100 for your dirty little gadget spelunking ways. This Windows Mobile 5.0 PPC Phone Edition handheld, you'll remember, sports a 400MHz Samsung processor, 2.9-inch QVGA display, 64MB RAM / 128MB ROM, a 1.3 megapixel shooter, Bluetooth, miniSD slot, quad-band GSM, and SiRFstar III GPS. So yeah, it's "bulky" as pointed out in the review, but then again this is one of the more "sophisticated" pocket PCs you'll find making it the ideal choice for both the highest-of-tech junkies and corporate users alike. Definitely not for the fashion conscious or average user due to its "great complexity" thus requiring a bit of know-how with them thar 'puters. But if opening 15 apps on a PocketPC without any noticeable performance degradation is your (like the reviewers) idea of a good time, then this is the work-horse for you. A few more snaps after the break.
