The new Philips X800 has invited negative criticism by both techno critics and consumers alike. X800 which seems like an imitation of iPhone has failed to please cell phone consumers. The beauty supports only 256k colours and if that is not annoying enough, it does not come with WLAN, 3G and EDGE which underscores the lack of connectivity made possible by Phillips. The data is limited to GPRS Class 10 and has left many at the technical circles wondering who could possibly have allowed this to reach the market? The designers have omitted flash for the camera and such glaring inadequacies have led Phillip’s brand image to risk ridicule. The consolation is a higher end model being conceived at the moment which shall resolve many of the issues faced by X800.
However, X800 looks great, has a great touchscreen display, and supports Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP which is not enough to make everyone happy. The higher-end Xenium X-Connect model is being eagerly waited which makes the purchase of X800 questionable. X800 comes with many features which are quite appealing but when the most important features are not given importance, any product would be lambasted by critics and consumers alike.
