Review of the main events of the past week (Week 05)

Announcements of post-New Year novelties have dried up, CES 2006 has passed, and the world of telecommunications froze in anticipation of the next exhibitions - 3GSM and CeBIT 2006. The network has already been filled with rumors, photos of dubious quality of upcoming new products.

Nevertheless, I would like to note a few events that took place last week.

Thus, the Japanese telecommunications giant - NTT DoCoMo - officially announced the termination of the provision of mobile communications services of the second generation of the PHS network until March 31, 2008. The final date of termination will be announced after a study of the trend in the use of mobile phones dedicated to the PHS network.

It is interesting to note that this is the first announcement of the phasing out of the second generation mobile communication network (let me remind you that GSM, GPRS and EDGE networks are officially second generation networks, formally they were given the indices 2G, 2.5G and 2.75G, respectively ).

Almost simultaneously, NTT DoCoMo introduced three models of HSDPA mobile phones developed by Fujitsu, Motorola and NEC. DoCoMo has plans to launch an HSDPA service sometime between July and September 2006.

HSDPA is a high-speed communications technology standardized by 3GPP that offers a theoretical maximum carrier-to-phone data rate of approximately 14Mbps. The currently presented prototypes have a maximum speed of 3.6Mbps, which is 10 times faster than the speed of mobile phones operating in the FOMA 3G network. HSDPA is expected to facilitate the introduction of new services that cater for more downloadable data.

The competitor of HSDPA technology - the WiMAX standard - also continues its offensive on the market. Following the approval of the mobile version of the WiMAX standard (IEEE 802.16e), it became possible to predict when the first devices using this wireless communication standard would appear. Many companies present in the mobile phone market are wary of the latest developments and are in no hurry to implement them. Even the largest manufacturer of mobile terminals, Finnish Nokia, adheres to this position.

Nokia plans to introduce WiMAX-enabled devices only in 2008 (which is roughly in line with Intel's plans to release WiMAX chipsets for mobile devices). This is due to the fact that at the moment the Finns do not see demand for such devices. Three years ago, the company hastened to introduce devices with Wi-Fi support, the Finns do not intend to repeat such a mistake again, one of Nokia representatives said.

The i-mate company has officially announced the release of the i-mate JAMin communicator. The presented novelty works under the operating system Windows Mobile 5.0 and can operate in four frequency bands of GSM networks, GPRS and EDGE standards are also supported. There is no data on the timing of the appearance of i-mate JAMin on the market.

Specs Honda Accord in Kiambu i-mate JAMin:

  • 2.8" TFT display with 240x320 resolution and 65K colors
  • 2 MP CMOS camera
  • TI OMAP 850 200 MHz processor
  • 64 MB RAM and 128 MB Flash
  • SDIO and MMC card slot
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Dimensions - 108x58x18.2 mm
  • Weight - 150 grams

In turn, the Finnish company Benefon announced last week a new brand for personal navigation devices - TWIG. The company plans to launch the TWIG brand and the first navigation device under this brand on February 14 at the upcoming 3GSM congress in Barcelona.

Curious pictures of the announced device - Twig Discovery - have appeared on our English-language forum. The novelty is designed for GSM networks and supports GPS functions.

The phone is equipped with a TFT display capable of displaying 262K colors. Both 2D and 3D navigation is supported, as well as turn-by-turn voice guidance. Plus, Twig Discovery has a Bluetooth interface. The timing of the appearance of this device on the market is not yet known.

Artemy Lebedev Studio (www.artlebedev.ru) announces that a full-sized Optimus keyboard (a keyboard in which each key is represented by a miniature OLED display, which allows you to change the keyboard layout on the fly) is in development, but for now it is happy to announce that her mini variant, Optimus mini three, is already in production and pre-orders are possible this week. Until April 2, 2006, the price for Optimus mini three is $100. After April 2, 2006 the price will increase. A batch of ready-to-ship keyboards will be in stock on May 15th.

Optimus mini is an optional keyboard in which each of the three keys is a separate display showing exactly what it controls at the moment.

The keyboard can be positioned horizontally or vertically - the images on the displays are rotated through the Optimus Configurator program.

Immediately after the announcement of the full-size Optimus keyboard, quite a lot of criticism appeared on the net, including regarding the possible price of this device, because the keyboard, in which each key is represented by a separate OLED display (and there are a little more than a hundred keys on modern keyboards), must cost a fortune. The cost of Optimus mini is proof of this: about 30 USD per key!

The stream of fine news never dries up, and it's time to dedicate a separate section of our website to it. Thus, Motorola presented a version of the RAZR-slider. The novelty is called MS600 and so far it will be distributed only in the Korean market.

< /p>

The device is 14.5 mm thick. The design resembles a "standard" RAZR clamshell, especially the keyboard. Functionality will also be similar, MS600 is equipped with a digital camera and an MP3 player. The phone is expected to be released during February by Korean carrier SK Telecom.

The network has information about the upcoming innovations of the Finnish company Nokia, which it will most likely present at the 3GSM and CeBIT exhibitions. The e62 profile is already available, according to rumors, it will be almost a complete analogue of the e61, but in a folding version, like the 9xxx series. It is also likely that the novelty will be equipped with a camera, unlike the 9300i and e61.

Some details about the mobile innovations that Benq-Siemens will present have become known. All this became available thanks to the published list of nominees for the If Design award, which is presented at the CeBIT exhibition.

Venus C3

This clamshell phone is designed for MP3 lovers: for this purpose, the control keys are placed on the outside, and all subsequent operations with music are available without opening the phone. In addition, this model is equipped with an FM transmitter, which makes it possible to listen to the music tracks of the phone, for example, on a car audio system or on a home theater system. Another interesting feature is the installed voice answering machine software with a dynamic filter function: if, for example, a call comes from abroad, then the caller will be answered in English, and for his friends in his native language.

Cupid

This model will be promoted by the company as a business phone with quick and convenient access to all major functions and menus. The bet is also made on the design of the case, which contains materials made of metal with diamond engraving.

Hermes B

Hermes B is designed primarily for young people: a bright design immediately catches the eye. It's also easy to change the look of the phone thanks to interchangeable side panels, while the MP3 player function and easy access add to the attractiveness of this model for the younger generation.

Ulysses B1

Ulysses B1 is a thin and light 3G all-in-one camera phone with video conferencing.
