LGIC, a leading manufacturer of domestic wireless internet terminals, has launched 15 mm super-slim and flip-type WAP phones equipped with internet log-on button on the outside.
After LGIC launched the world's thinnest PCS phone, 'Cyon Folder' last May, this wireless internet phone WAP came out with more advanced functions. Users can log on to the internet using the outside button even without opening the flip and its 'ez Sync' function allows users to manage personal information through PC roaming cable.
In order to focus on simple and cyber image, aluminum is used for the front material of the phone. A keypad is also used on outside of the phone to prevent compression that could lead to wrong dialing.
With wide graphic LCD (when using n-TOP, as long as 6 lines and as many as 60 Korean letters can be put on the screen with icon calculated into the total number of letters) and EL background lighting installed inside, the product creates a wireless internet environment where a user can send e-mail, do stock trading and banking business, make reservations, use shopping mall and take part in e-commerce.
Additional features range from a graphic animation function that makes choosing and sending particular characters possible to an Audio AGC function that modulates phone volume for optimum phone talk quality. The phone can also match a particular phone number with a chosen bell sound.
Launching the super-slim WAP phone put LGIC into a position of the biggest wireless internet phone manufacturer in Korea. LGIC now provides as many as five mobile communications enterprises with a total of 13 kinds of wireless internet phones equipped with WAP and ME (Mobile Explorer) browsers, the company said. The company plans to focus on providing wider choice for prospective internet phone users through development on more varied products. At the same time the company's main concern will be to try to bring somewhat sluggish domestic mobile communications market alive.
