xpPhone Runs Windows 7 And Has Several Screen Sizes

A new order page reveals some surprising new info on the netbook-like xpPhone. Turns out that 4.3-inch, 4.8-inch and tablet-style 7-inch touchscreen versions will be available, and you’ll be to add a 5-megapixel camera, Windows 7 and dual GSM/CDMA support.

As you can see in the screen grab above, customised orders also include the choice of an 800×480 or 1024×600 pixel LCD. I’ve no idea why MS-DOS is listed; maybe it saves potential Linux modders from having to pay for Windows.

A standard 4.8-inch screen on the xpPhone (aka XPInSide) never quite sat well with me. It seemed too big for a phone, yet too small for a tablet. I’m thinking a smaller, lighter 4.3-inch version sounds just about right. That’ll be an “over 1GHz” AMD Super Mobile CPU for me, please. Still no word on pricing or availability, but I’ll let you know when I hear more. [ITG]
