Dubbed the world's smallest PDA phone based on the Microsoft Windows CE .NET 4.2 OS, the AXIA A108 is the first candy bar PDA phone on the Microsoft platform to feature an alpha-numeric keypad. At 11cm (h) x 4.8cm (w) x 2.2cm (d) the AXIA A108 looks more like a phone then a PDA. It is designed for the mobile phone user who desires the convenience of a small, handy device -- much like the mobile phone he or she is familiar with -- that also delivers all the capabilities of a PDA.
The idea of incorporating an alpha-numeric keypad is to enable the user to easily input messages for SMS and email, using just one hand. This input option should appeal to many phone users who have been reluctant to move to PDA phones due to the clunky virtual keyboard input method available on other devices.
The AXIA A108 features tri-band (900, 1800, 1900 MHz) GSM and GPRS Class 10 connectivity for worldwide accessibility and portability. The AXIA PDA phone will be the first PDA phone to come with a 1.3 Mega Pixel camera and a 2.2 inch, 240 x 320 (QVGA) pixel resolution touch screen at 262K colors. This combination of features, being industry firsts, offers brilliant color depth and quality.
