Today, Ericsson announced the T66 - its smallest and lightest mobile phone to date - compact enough to fit in the smallest pocket. T66 comes
in two colors, Silver Supreme and Purple Passion and will be available in the fourth quarter, 2001.
At roughly the same length and width as a credit card, T66 is extremely small. It weighs only 59 grams and its streamlined design includes a
built-in antenna. The T66 has a standby time up to 150 hours and many user-friendly features packed into a neat unit. The T66 has several
enhanced messaging features and is compatible with GSM900/1800/1900 for international coverage.
Message with flair The T66 includes Enhanced Messaging Service (EMS), a chat function, and
WAP. With EMS, communicating via a mobile phone becomes more fun, creative and personal. EMS allows users to send and receive pictures,
sound effects and melodies along with SMS text messages. The phone comes complete with a wide range of pre-installed pictures and melody options. Users can store downloaded pictures and melodies from the Mobile Internet.
Another great new feature of the T66 is the mobile chat - point-to-point messaging between two phones that support mobile chat. It works in a
similar way to Internet-based chat, where users exchange instant messages with each other.
Packed with features T66 makes it easy to stay up-to-date with the latest information using
the Mobile Internet. Users can shop, bank or browse information via the phone from the wide range of WAP sites. T66 also incorporates the
advanced WTLS security system, which encrypts sensitive information such as credit card details, for safer online transactions.
T66 has a highly useful calendar that makes it possible to store details bout appointments, dates and tasks in the phone. T66 will even provide reminder for important dates and deadlines.
