e2831 cellphoneThe E2831 is a -powered cellphone from Shanghai based manufacturer E28 Ltd., which has been recently been approved by the FCC. It supports normal mobile telephony using any network SIM and GSM, but also offers via the SIP Protocol and WiFi.

It is powered by a OMAP TI 730 processor and 64 MB RAM + 64 MB NAND Flash memory and features a 2.2″ touchscreen. GSM is quadband and WiFi 802.11b/g with auto roaming. Apart from GSM and WiFi it offers Bluetooth 1.2 for wireless connectivity and USB 1.1 (Mini USB) for wired. You can surf the Internet using the supplied Opera browser and POP3, SMTP and eSMTP are supported for e-Mail.

This sounds like a really good phone to me, especially as it features auto-switching between GSM and VoIP, something I have wanted for quite a while. Availability in Europe is unknown, but I will check this one out when I visit China later this year.

    Yes, that is a good price Emily and i hope the quality lives up to the anticipation you must be feeling right now. Happy times with that piece of hi-tech. GPD.

    The ISP Neuf (or “N9uf”) Telecom has stopped commercialising it in France since it was taken over by the mobile operator SFR – which takes a dim view of VOIP. SFR (ex Neuf) no longer supports the device, so French users are offloading them on Ebay France. The going price is now about 30 euros. Look for “Twin Tact”. It is then an easy matter to reflash the firmware with the original E28 system.
