    How does the full XP OS in your pocket sound?

    We've seen a lot of smartphones over the last two years (and we mean a LOT). Similar to netbooks, it's rare we'll see one that really catches our eye. They're mostly just "me too" products from companies eager to cash in on the fact that practically everyone wants a phone that can do more than just make calls and send messages.

    However, during the week we clapped eyes on the xpPhone, a device that was oh so briefly demoed at Computex. ITG's smartphone looks like a lot of work. Far from your average Windows phone, it has a QWERTY keyboard and then some. Everything you see on the keyboard in front of you is on the xpPhone, along with dedicated buttons for left and right mouse clicks. As the name suggests, the phone comes with Windows XP as opposed to Windows Mobile.

    While this is interesting (we definitely want to get our hands on one to take it for a test drive), that all-inclusive, slide out keyboard, 4.8-inch LCD and camera make for a pretty big phone. Then again, what can you expect from a phone with USB support (for a scanner, printer, mouse or keyboard), VGA, GPS and a touchpad?

    Anyone even a little interested?

    Yup, that's true. We need some good AV which will consume minimum system resource but the concept is very novel and xp user will feel just right at home with this small wonder :p
