Tokyo -- "J-Phone Tokyo Co., Ltd. will introduce the Sky Photo Pad, an e-mail device equipped with a compact digital camera and a color liquid-crystal display, in October.

"By connecting the device with J-Phone's cellular phone compatible with J-Sky, J-Phone's Internet service for cellular phones, it will be possible to send images attached to e-mail messages, a company source said. The company has yet to decide on a price.

"Sky Photo Pad is manufactured by Toshiba Corp. Its digital camera features a 110,000-pixel complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor. The camera can turn 180 degrees up and down. Filming modes are quantity-priority mode of 7KB for each picture and quality-priority mode of 17KB the same.

"Its internal memory available for users is 1MB, which means that users can record more than 50 pictures in the quantity-priority mode. The filmed images are stored in the JPEG format. Because Sky Photo Pad also is equipped with a slot for smart media, the images can be stored in the internal memory or in the Smart Media.

"It has a simple picture-editing function, enabling the user to add a frame around the picture, or change the picture's color into sepia-color. Also, it enables users to write graffiti on the picture with a pen that comes with Sky Photo Pad.

"Its e-mail function allows the user to send a message of up to 3,000 two-byte letters to a cellular phone compatible with J-Sky's mailing function for its own network that supports long messages. If the user has a contract with an Internet access provider, sending and receiving e-mails through the Internet can be done.

"The device uses two AA alkaline batteries, and the battery life is up to 15 hours (if the power is turned on with its back-light off). It measures 160 mm wide by 105 mm deep by 27.5 mm thick, and weighs about 334 grams, including batteries.
