Philips Xenium [email protected] phones go 40 days and 40 nights


Much is in demand from cell phones these days, and battery life is becoming an increasingly prominent concern. Philips is literally breathing new life into the industry by announcing a whole new line of cell phones — the Xenium [email protected] series — which boast up to 40 days and 40 nights of standby on a single charge. That’s a really long time, especially considering that even the incessant chatter can get 10 hours of talk time on a topped-up handset.

From left to right, we have the Xenium [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected] They’re all candybars with similar looking keypads, but as you’d suspect, the higher the letter, the greater the features. The [email protected] is the most basic of the bunch with its dual-band GSM (900/1800) connectivity, 1.5-inch OLED display, 2MB memory, and polyphonic ringtones. That said, this is the longest lasting of the trio.

Stepping it up a notch is the [email protected] with its 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Java 2.0, and 18MB of memory. This one has got about 30 days of standby. Last and certainly not least is the [email protected], which rocks a 128×160 touchscreen, MP3 player, handwriting recognition, miniSD expansion, and smartphone-like functionality. Interestingly, it lacks Bluetooth and IrDA.
