Perhaps it will seem strange to someone, but this Taiwanese company (founded in 1985), famous for its all-in-one communicators, began its journey as a creator of software and hardware for adapting personal computers (then still working under operating system management DOS) under Chinese. Developed E-TEN the input system played a huge role in the spread of the PC in the Asian region.
And not only the computers themselves, but also publishing systems and peripherals. So, the first laser printer that supports Chinese appeared in 1994 as a joint creation E-TEN и Canon.
Later E-TEN took up the adaptation of their developments for mobile devices, succeeding in this endeavor. Initially, the so-called financial pagers were adapted - devices for receiving real-time stock reports.
The company's management decided to start producing communicators of its own design, looking at the exceptionally rapidly growing popularity of these devices at the turn of the century.
2006 was marked by the emergence of a new brand - Glofiish, under which new models of communicators were sold from now on.
From September 1, 2008 E-TEN became a division of another Taiwanese company - the company Acerwho wished to enter the market of communicators and smartphones. The first communicator under the brand Acer was introduced in February 2009 - model X900. The same device is also known as the Glofiish DX900. But later the brand Glofiish was abandoned. Acer decided to focus on a much more recognizable own brand.
The company's headquarters was located in Taipei, Taiwan.
