InfoSonics Corporation today announced the launch of its new verykool® s758 Smartphone/Tablet crossover device.
"Customer feedback to our predecessor verykool® s757 inspired us to design our next generation crossover: the verykool® s758," said Joseph Ram, the company's president and chief executive officer. "We made a number of important improvements. The s758 is powered by a 1 GHz dual core processor and the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system with its refined and evolved user interface to facilitate a personalized mobile experience. We improved its ergonomic feel and design with more gentle curves and enlarged the capacitive touch screen to 5.15 inches. We still believe there are many consumers in emerging markets who do not have personal computers and can benefit from a crossover product like the s758 to bridge the technology divide. It enables users to connect to the internet via their service provider and browse the web, while still having all the capabilities of a wireless phone, including tethering. It also has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera for video conferencing, expandable external storage of up to 32GB and a multitude of connectivity and media features."
The Company noted the following additional details of the s758:
3G HSPA (7.2/5.76) tri band (850/1900/2100 or 850/1700/2100) and 2G GSM quad band (850/900/1800/1900)
Connectivity includes Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, WAP, JAVA, GPS and USB port
SMS and MMS messaging plus push e-mail
Predictive text input
Built-in FM radio and MP3 music player
2350 mAh Li-Ion battery
Speakerphone, proximity/light/gravity sensors, digital compass, torch and 3.5mm audio jack and stereo headset included
Hearing aid compatible (M3/T3 rating)
The verykool® s758 is available now and comes in two versions: a single SIM version for operator customers and a dual SIM version for the open market. It will be available in the United States for a suggested retail price of $249 (US).
