xpPhone Runs Windows 7 and Has Several Screen SizesS

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

As you can see in the screen grab above, customized orders also include the choice of an 800 x 480 or 1024 x 600-pixel LCD. I've no idea why MS-DOS is listed; maybe it saves potential Linux modders from having to pay for Windows. And as for the 7-incher? A Bluetooth headset would avoid needing to hold the thing to your face.

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, but I'll let you know when I hear more. [ITG]
