Malaysia’s Very Own PDA Phone 

KUALA LUMPUR: It looks like any other PDA phone on the market. But the Dallab DX8i is a made-in-Malaysia product and is practically a miniature personal computer. 

Dallab Sales and Marketing Sdn Bhd said the quad-band device runs on Microsoft Corp’s Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Edition operating system. 

This allows users to view high-quality videos, play graphics-intensive computer games, aside from running wordprocessor, spreadsheet, and organiser. 

Users can also download any of the thousands of Pocket PC applications available on the Internet for use on the DX8i. 

Power-packed: The Dallab DX8i PDA phone has all the featuresyou’d expect from a high-end phone, and it looks good too.

At the heart of the device is Intel’s 416MHz XScale processor, which Dallab claims is the fastest in its class. 

The DX8i has a largish 2.2 in LCD screen that’s capable of displaying up to 262,000 colours at a resolution of 320 x 240pixels. This results in crisp text and sharp images, said Dallab. 

Dallab said the phone has both a numeric keypad and a touch screen interface. 

It is priced at RM1,888. 

The phone was launched by Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik on Friday.
