ITG xpPhone 2 to Hit Stores in January 2012

ITG xpPhone 2Ever heard of the ITG xpPhone? If not, I’m not surprised. With the physical size of a small brick and the extremely short battery life, I don’t think it surprises anyone that this phone didn’t blow up the market since it launched back in November of 2010. In fact, it is something of a rare commodity to see one in person.

Despite all the negative attention, ITG has continued to stick by the product and the company has just announced the second generation of the Windows-powered smartphone. Why are they doing this you might ask? Well ITG states that it prefers Windows’ greater range of compatible software in comparison to those of mobile OS devices, specifically Android and iOS.

Subtly named the xpPhone 2, this monster of a cell phone comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 chip as well as 2GB of RAM, up to 112GB of SSD storage, a 4.3″ display and compatibility with both Windows 7 as well as Windows 8, depending on the final release date of Microsoft’s latest operating system.

Thankfully, the battery life has been increased to 18 hours of call time or 46 days on standby. In addition to that, the phone has also been put on a diet and slimmed down. Full dimensions now put the xpPhone 2 at 140mm x 73mm x 17.5mm, a big improvement over its bulky predecessor.

Coming with the touch-friendly Windows 8 as well as a non-underclocked CPU, I think it is safe to assume that the xpPhone 2 stands a much better chance at gaining popularity than the original xpPhone did. However, we will not know for sure until the device debuts in January of 2012. Good luck ITG, maybe somebody will actually hear about this one.
