Nokia's 8390 GPRS Phone Coming to the Americas
Posted: 28-Jun-2001 [Source:]

[Nokia's first GPRS-enabled phone to be available by the end of 2001 in the Americas.]

by Jean Panke, WAPsight -- Nokia announced today it will be making the feature-intense 8390 available in the Americas by the end of the year. The phone will be demonstrated and available for viewing during the Fall Comdex 2001 held from November 12 through the 16th in Las Vegas.

The GPRS-enabled Nokia 8390 can quickly access data by using its WAP mobile Internet browser, or by connecting to a PC using its integrated infrared port. The Nokia 8390 supports the most recent WAP release, WAP 1.2.1, which enables the possibility of 'push' services like continuous news updates as well as the optional use of 'cookies,' so that information from a previous session can be recalled without entering information for a second time.

The advantages of GPRS technology allows users to stay connected to the Internet by using packet switching technology providing faster downloads as no time is spent attempting to access a dial-up connection. A users favorite information and entertainment sites are always available via GPRS without having to maintain a continuous phone call.
