Kinpo pushes Tin (and Saturn)

Chris Ziegler

Taiwanese manufacturer Kinpo is following up the "lightest in the world" S600 Pocket PC phone with a pair of Windows Mobile 2005 devices under its iDo brand name. First up is the tri-band Tin, whose name doesn't inspire a lot of confidence, but packs a reasonable punch for its 21.5mm of girth: a sliding keyboard, 350MHz Freescale i.MX21, 64MB of RAM, 128MB of flash, Bluetooth 2.0, 802.11b/g, a MiniSD slot, and a 2.8-inch QVGA display. Next up, the Saturn takes the Tin's specs and antes up a 2.0 megapixel shooter and a bonus 170MHz of clock on the Freescale for a staggering total of 520MHz. We're told the Tin is so-named for its metallic finish; whether that means the Saturn is large and gassy, we don't know, but we'd love to find out if only Kinpo would care to send a few our way.
