[Curitel's new P1 Slab-type convergence mobile phone is being promoted as a new design style beyond the clamshell or sliding phone types]
P1 is not a length-wise conventional bar-type phone. Rather, it is a level slab in shape looking like a digital camera with an antenna at the corner. Naturally, it is more convenient to carry around and to take pictures. Furthermore, the bigger screen (1.9") gives a more stable look than that of a conventional bar type. P1 is only 15.8mm-thick, which makes it one of the leanest mobile phones in Korea. Since P1 is not foldable like many camera phones, a keylock function protects you from accidental pushes or any exterior pressure on keypads. The unique design of P1 earned itself a recognition as a product of Good Design by the Korean Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy.
Besides its attractive appearance, P1 has Korea's first TTS(Test to Speech) function. This function gives various text information in form of hearing messages. The application is widely used in voice e-mail, voice prompt, and voice recognition machines.
Addtional features include a built-in 2-megapixel CCD camera with auto focus, flash, 12X digital zoom with 9 continuous shots. The rear look of P1 resembles a digital camera. By putting an MSM 6100 chip inside, P1 provides an Electronic Dictionary with 28,000 words including definitions, examples and pronunciations. The MSM6100 chip improves the speed of graphics or data presentation.
