While we finish our full written review, here's our video review to whet your appetite. The new Glofiish M810 is an HTC Tilt-style device in terms of form and function. It's a hunky device with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, QVGA touch screen display and pretty much every feature you can cram into Windows Mobile: SiRF III GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, an FM radio and US 3G. This is GSM unlocked Windows Mobile 6 Professional phone with quad band GSM and triband 3G HSDPA (850/1900/2100MHz).
It bests the HTC Tilt with it's full SiRF GPS chipset and FM radio but loses in the memory department. The M810, like most recent Glofiish models, has 64 megs of RAM rather than 128. E-TEN has managed to reduce memory consumption and there are approx. 29 megs of free RAM at boot-- sufficient for average users or power users who make use of E-TEN's RAM/ask management application on-board. The M810 gets laggy at times, and it's interesting that the MWg Zinc II which looks to be the exact same hardware but with different software customizations flies in comparison. (We'll be reviewing the Zinc II soon as well).
