Proper phone interface

Although the specs have already been detailed, ITG has now shed some light about the custom touch-capable UI that will be a part of its Windows XP running xpPhone.

As it runs on Windows XP OS, which was never intended to be used on a phone, guys from ITG needed to make a custom Dial-up interface for it. It uses a traditional tabbed menu and it is as finger-friendly as it can be. The good side of the fact that it uses x86 CPU is that you basically can use any desktop OS that has a decent touch support.

ITG's xpPhone supports almost any wireless connectivity that you can think of so you can use, quad-band GSM and CDMA, HSPA, EV-DO, TD-SCDMA, optional WiMax, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. Since we are talking about Windows XP, ITG is quite keen on saying that it supports huge number of applications, which is pretty neat, especially if you consider that you can use almost any software that can run on XP OS.

Bear in mind that ITG's xpPhone isn't your average pocket size device as this one weighs 400 grams, has a 4.8-inch screen and its size is somewhere around 158x75x16mm.
