Here is a short video walkthrough of the new handsets presented and other insight at the GSMA Mobile World Congress today:
Garnim Nuvifone … the Smartphone mixed with a personal GPS navigation device.
Nokia N96 … their new flagship product to compete with the iPhone: The Finnish leader in worldwide handset marketshares included the mobile TV standard DVB-H, a 16 GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. Symbian S60 is running as the mobile Operating System. So it has a well functioning but oldfashioned userinterface – and there is tons of software out there. You can watch your videos or mobile TV at a glossy 2.8″ QVAG screen and can use nearly every connection you want: quad band GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz) – with GPRS, HSDPA and EDGE support for high speed data connections, dual band WCDMA (900/2100MHz) – also called UMTS in Europe – and WiFi (802.11b/g). It even has a GPS-receiver built in.
SonyEricsson XPERIA X1 … the SonyEricsson people try to compete with the elegance of the Apple iPhone by using Windows Mobile and refurbishing the user interface. It’s equipped with a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard and a glossy 3″ WVGA display, also a built in GPS-receiver. It works with a variety of GSM HSDPA/HSUPA networks as well as Wifi.
They created a inspiring ad for the XPERIA X1
… BTW … it’s the biggest event in the mobile inustry and everybody is talking about a company which isn’t even exhibiting there – Apple with it’s iPhone 😉
