Scarborouh, ON -- TELUS Mobility today announced the exclusive availability of the Fastap(tm) LG 6190, the world's first wireless phone that integrates text keys around a standard numeric phone keypad. Fastap technology makes it far faster and easier for Canadians to send text, picture and e-mail messages, or enter e-mail addresses, phonebook contacts, Internet directory searches and other data directly into their wireless phones.
The Fastap keypad is the first that neatly integrates letter, number and punctuation keys around the standard numeric keypad on a mobile phone. The intuitive interface allows clients to compose messages at least twice as fast as with a standard keypad, eliminating the "triple tapping" often required to input a single letter. Fastap keypad technologies, developed and owned by Digit Wireless (digitwireless.com), are available on the Fastap LG 6190 exclusively from TELUS Mobility.
Clients can quickly send text messages, add text to picture messages, and input a variety of other data into their phones, such as phonebook entries or directory searches on the wireless Web. They can also send and receive e-mail from TELUS, Hotmail and other POP3 e-mail accounts.
The Fastap LG 6190 flip phone is also a 300k pixel digital camera phone with built-in flash, 4X digital zoom and access to TELUS Mobility's picture messaging service, It also features an integrated speakerphone and downloadable ringtones, images and games. The Fastap LG 6190 is available at an introductory price of $99.99 with a three-year contract until December 31, 2004.
