[Sagem launches slider phone that is i-mode compliant and uses the Openwave Mobile Browser Version 7.]
Redwood City, Calif. -- Openwave Systems Inc. announced a collaboration with SAGEM to deliver the SG321i, one of the first i-mode compliant phones to be produced by a European manufacturer, to Bouygues Telecom, a French mobile operator acknowledged for its policy of innovation. The phone will use the Openwave Mail Client for i-mode and Openwave(R) Mobile Browser Version 7 (V7 Browser), the flagship application from Openwave Phone Suite Version 7.
The popular i-mode service, created by Japan's NTT DoCoMo, Inc., has already been launched in a number of countries throughout Europe, each with unique content. As NTT DoCoMo continues to roll out its service in Europe and other regions, operators and handset manufacturers intend to develop and integrate i-mode compliant phones with their existing standards. Openwave client software delivers market leading implementations of both i-mode and Open Mobile Alliance standards.
SAGEM was one of the first European manufacturers to act on NTT DoCoMo's call to develop i-mode phones outside of Japan. With Openwave client software, SAGEM has created a consistent and unique user-interface for their i-mode phone while leveraging the investments that they are already making in phone software and applications.
"The i-mode SG321i is an invaluable asset for SAGEM's GSM product portfolio since it is not only our first product based on i-mode technology but also the very first slide phone that we launch and we are happy to have worked on it with Openwave," said Thierry Buffenoir, Managing Director of SAGEM's Mobile Phones Division.
