ITG or In Technology Group also known as China Apple has done a research on developing a “Post Smartphone” which is not just a smartphone like today’s. The idea presented last year to introduce such a device for Apple users which can play music like ipod, play games like iPad, make calls like iPhone and do work like MacBook Air. So its basically a 4-into-1 device, the “Post Smartphone” or “Smallest notebook PC in the world” given a model name as ITG xPhone 2.
The ITG xPhone 2 is a Windows phone which can run on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 platforms. While the xPhone 2 released in China runs on Windows 7 and packs:
- 4.3” display
- Single-core Atom Z530 1.6GHz processor
- 2GB of RAM and 112GB of SSD storage
- VGA port
- Longest continuous talk-time up to 18.5 hrs.
- Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
In addition with above features, there are lots of interesting and useful applications that can be easily accessible though windows 7 and windows 8 platform. You can turn it into Mac Pc by connecting a mouse and keyboard or smart phone while on the go; in the office, xpPhone acts as a notebook connecting with Projector for lecturing; in the car, xpPhone can be used for GPS navigation. The ITG xPhone 2 will be launched globally in 2012 hopefully with the release of Windows 8 but fail to find any information related to price.
