CommiunicAsia 2004, Singapore -- Panasonic brings its flagship model for 2004, the X700 smartphone, to CommunicAsia 2004 currently underway in Singapore. It was previewed earlier in the year at Cannes. This compact digital camera phone, with video capability, comes in Panasonic's stylish clamshell design and supports the miniSD(TM) card. The X700 utilises Symbian Operating System(TM) (OS), based on open standards, and the Series 60 Platform. Shipments across Asia and Europe are scheduled to begin Autumn 2004.
The X700 supports a series of pre-loaded applications. Users can view and edit native Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents on their handset. The miniSDTM card provides additional memory to store these files and by using the miniSD(TM) adapter can easily link these to other Panasonic AV equipment. In addition, an imaging application, that is also included, enables users to edit photos taken with the handset's high quality camera. Using the X700's Java(TM) capability, the user can download further applications, polyphonic ring tones and games.
Technically advanced The X700 is Panasonic's first handset to use Symbian OS and the Series 60 Platform, which are increasingly bringing advanced mobile data services to the mass market. The X700 is also one of the first clamshell smartphones to offer a full colour sub display and picture CLI (Call Line Identification). Symbian OS and Series 60 are driving open standards for global network interoperability with mobile networks, content applications and services.
Users will experience clearer pictures with the X700's built-in VGA digital camera, photo light and 65,536 colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display screen. The handset's editing capabilities allow users to enhance the quality of these images further and with the miniSD(TM) card, storing these files is not a problem. The X700 also offers the new and exciting feature of video capture, download and playback.
As well as being one of the most advanced GSM handsets on the market, the X700 is one of the smallest and lightest smartphones available. Its stylish and elegant clamshell design, with full colour sub display, will appeal to mobile professionals, who will be able to use the X700 for a combination of business and personal activities.
The X700 supports MMS, email and Bluetooth, allowing users to send photos and documents to a PC or MMS enabled phone. Its Bluetooth capability also allows wireless connectivity through a Bluetooth hands-free headset and when connecting remotely through a laptop. In addition, its tri-band capabilities means users can take advantage of the X700's features and services while abroad. The X700 also features one of the first speaker independent voice recognition systems, to ease the dialling of numbers from the phonebook and to control some of the functions in the phone, all without having to train it first.
