Philips is pretty busy these days with their phone launches.  Last week we saw the Xenium X530 and like I said it’s your run of the mill flip/clamshell phone.  Following suit is the X700.  On the outside of the handset is a 2-inch QVGA display, while the inside screen is 2.4-inches with a 240×320 resolution.  The biggest and really only abnormal feature to the X700 is its 720 hour standby time, which I have a hard time believing, unless of course you were standing next to the cell tower.  Its remaining feature set includes Bluetooth, media player, FM radio with RDS, 3.2MP camera and Quad-band GSM connectivity sans 3G.

The Philips Xenium X700 is expected to hit the EU and China sometime soon for about $220.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
