ETEN M500: New Equipment Blog – Day 02
The ETEN M500 is here! Boy talk about you’re tiny gadgets! Sheesh! I’ll tell you one thing, though… I’ll be glad when the WM5 upgrade gets here. The way the device’s memory is used, allocated, and stuff is nasty! With only 64MB, I’m seriously hurting for Program RAM. Yes, I have a lot of stuff installed to the devices Persistant Storage area (its File Store, if you will…), a lot of program components still get installed to RAM. My PDA2k’s 128MB of RAM has spoiled me…
BTW, I spoke to Leonard over at Pocket PC Techs, and he can’t upgrade the M500 to 128MB of RAM. Its not technically possible, which is a real bummer. So, until WM5 hits, I’ve got a RAM problem.
I’ve got just about all of my software installed to the device, and I’ll be playing with it over the Holiday Weekend her in the US. Watch for more blogs over the weekend.
Also, if you’re interested in a phone that has just about the same functionality as the i-mate JAM, without as much cost, you can check out eXpansys USA or Mad Money Boy’s Gadgets. eXpansys has the device for $524.95US. MMB has it for $544.99US.
