Hannover -- Today, Ericsson announced the T68, its first mobile phone with color display, Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) and digital imaging and
audio capabilities. This very small, powerful and sleek mobile phone with a completely new look and feel is developed for GSM 900/1800/1900
and GPRS networks and will be available before the end of 2001.
"The T68 demonstrates a clear trend shift within Ericsson's industrial design and at the same time incorporates all the technologies that the industry is going wild for at the moment," says Bo Albertson, Marketing Director at Ericsson Mobile Communications.
The T68 has built-in Bluetooth wireless technology that makes it possible to connect it to other devices without cables, for instance the Ericsson Bluetooth headset, a digital camera or a computer. It is the future standard for cablefree connectivity between devices and has been adopted by all the major computer and telecommunications companies.
The T68 supports General Packet Radio Services (GPRS), so users will enjoy 'always on' connectivity to the mobile Internet, with instant delivery of e-mail, high-speed Internet access and efficient mobile
connections to corporate LANs. Ericsson is answering a growing market demand for mobile phones that support GPRS and the company is a popular choice of supplier among network operators gearing up to introduce new
innovative services to the market. Ericsson has also launched the GPRS-phones R520 and T39.
Small - 101 x 48 x 19mm, and lightweight, weighing only 85 grams, T68 has a built-in antenna and a large 8 row, 256 color, display which opens up for exciting applications and user-friendly operation. The T68 will also support the latest and most advanced messaging application - MMS.
The Ericsson T68 will be available toward the end of 2001 when more information about its features will be released.
