The flip cover is really well designed, but the inside is really boring. The Xenium X530 includes all of the usual stuff that you'd expect. It's got an external OLED screen, that's the only thing that caught my eye while I was looking at the specs. The rest of the them are pretty straightforward and unremarkable. Naturally, like the rest of the Xenium line, this phone will most probably only be released in Asia. Since Apple can't even seem to give away iPhones in Asia, this phone might do well.

Philips Xenium phone, I thought to myself, wow, what a cool looking phone! Then I saw inside the clamshell and was sorely disappointed. The only really good thing about being int he Xenium line is that this phone has a very impressive battery life. An 8-hour talk time and over an 850-hour standby mode, which is quite impressive. It's funny to see the display tell you that you've got more than a month in standby mode.
