We can't put our finger on it, but for some reason, this Xenium K700 from Philips -- rumored last month and pictured here in clean press shots for the first time -- doesn't really scream \"phone\" to us. PMP we could see, possibly a low-end point and shoot camera, but not so much \"I'm planning on hol

Here's some of the other stuff that happened in the wide world of mobile for Tuesday, August 4th, 2009: Following the G'zOne C731 Rock, Casio's C741 Brigade for Verizon has nabbed FCC clearance. Not much is known about the phone -- we can assume it'll be ruggedized to one degree or another -- b

You might remember that reasonably attractive -- but EDGE-impaired -- Xenium X800 full touchscreen phone out of Philips last year, and it looks like they've got a successor lined up nearly a year later. The X810 (pictured top) looks a whole lot fresher than the model it replaces and adds a sliding

While the recent flood of Xenium handsets aren't apt to hit American shores anytime soon, we may actually hop a flight to toy with the Xenium X810. Unlike most of its siblings, this here device is actually intriguing, boasting a 400 x 240 resolution touchscreen display, 3.2 megapixel camera, FM rad

The word Xenium immediately sets off thoughts of frolicking in Dutch fields for days without nary a care in the world with respect to battery life, and the cute little X700 aligns perfectly with those whimsical thoughts. The latest flip phone in Philips's growing arsenal of longevous devices can re

We're not sure what's up with Philips' aversion to 3G, but the EDGE trend apparently continues with its latest, the Xenium X530 flip. Per usual for the Xenium series of phones, the X530 features gorilla-like battery endurance that'll supposedly give you some 850 hours of standby time and 8 hours of

If there's one thing Philips' Xenium line is really good at, it's ridiculously long claimed talk and standby times; and if there's one thing it's really bad at, it's 3G. Personally, we'd rather recharge an HSPA phone once a day than an EDGE phone once a week, but for those who don't share our love

Philips' Xenium line is known for being able to last an incredibly long time without a recharge, and the outfit's newest duo continue the trend. The special edition Xenium 9@9q mobiles -- dubbed Dragon and Phoenix -- both feature rather snazzy designs and can reportedly last up to a month in standb

No one ever said you had to be awesome at everything, and hardly anyone understands this better than Philips. Seriously, the only thing even remotely stellar about the company's family of Xenium handsets is the marvelous battery life, and even though the X620's 2.4-inch display is only QVGA and the

If you happened to catch the oddly -named 9@9k about a year ago, you'll likely notice that the \"new\" X500 seems like a twin with a minor bit of cosmetic work. The X500 features two-month standby and 16 hour talk time, tri-band EDGE, 1.3 megapixel camera, microSD expansion, and an FM radio with RDS

Well, the Xenium has ugly pegged, it also brags 2-month standby time and 16-hour talk time. Philips latest venture in triple band GSM / GPRS sets also packs memory expansion via microSD up to 2GB, a music player, and two displays. Not much else to share here friends, though, perhaps we'll get some

We already knew that Philips had plans to release the low-end touchscreen X800, but now we know just how low it was willing to go with this thing. Confirmed are the lack of 3G, EDGE (which still shocks us), and WiFi. Meanwhile, the 2.9-inch, 240x400 screen, only supports 256K colors, and the phone'

A couple things you should know about this purported Philips Xenium X-Connect before churning your gadget juices through the emotional Osterizer. First, it's clearly a product rendering.

We're still not entirely clear if Philips' Xenium 9@9k, you know, actually exists, but according to iDNES, this handset can last a whopping two months without needing a recharge. Granted, the Xenium line has traditionally boasted impressive battery life, but this particular iteration will purportedl

Philips' line of odd-named Xenium 9@9 GSM handsets will go pouncing around for more than a month according to the company. Yep, you guessed it -- an almost-untouchable 40 days of standby time (if you never use the thing, we guess) is what Philips is marketing these babies with -- along with 10 hour
