MultiMobile: new all-in-one mobile phone and pocket PC for mobile business communication

Siemens Information and Communication Mobile (IC Mobile) have launched MultiMobile, a combination of PDA and mobile phone for mobile business communication. Based on Microsoft’s Pocket PC operating system, the Java enabled MultiMobile with integrated GPRS phone is set to redefine the standard of mobile voice and data based communication. The MultiMobile brings seamless integration of PDA and mobile phone allowing the sending and receiving of emails in one compact device.

The MultiMobile’s Compact Flash Slot and MultiMediaCard™ Slot enable the device to access and download software applications directly from a server opening the door to thousands of applications which can be installed and run on the MultiMobile’s , 32 MB RAM memory. Furthermore the Compact Flash Slot and MultiMediaCardä Slot can be used to extend the MultiMobile’s memory depending on the memory size offered by this two card devices.

Keeping in touch with the office either through voice, fax or e-mail is now more convenient than ever before. Using the MultiMobile’s stereo headset users have access to full phone functionality via the integrated phone book manager using the touchscreen display. With a backlit TFT colour screen, capable of displaying over 65,000 colors the MultiMobile has the best display in its sector. This clarity ensures that applications such as E-books, still image viewing and gaming can be viewed with unrivaled clarity.

The GPRS capability of the MultiMobile means faster, practical mobile access to the Internet, either through the device’s WAP Browser or via the HTTP Browser supplied with Pocket PC. In addition to accessing WAP and Internet sites, the MultiMobile can be configured to provide remote access to corporate LANs or Intranets via the HTTP Browser. The excellent security software means that confidential access to company information is assured.

The Pocket PC operating system on the MultiMobile comes with software such as Pocket Word, Pocket Excel, Outlook, Media Player (MP3), Calculator and Inbox as standard. By using the MultiMobile’s Active Sync Station, users can quicky and speedily sychronise their handset with MS Outlook or Lotus Organizer ensuring the transfer of data between office and mobile device is entirely seamless and fast using USB Port connection.

Peter Zapf, President of Mobile Phones within the Siemens Information and Communication Mobile Group, said: “The launch of the MultiMobile demonstrates Siemens competence in integrated voice and data devices. The MultiMobile’s flexibility means that it is capable of running literally thousands of applications, making the most exciting GPRS hand-held product launched this year.”

To illustrate the capability of the MultiMobile’s open platform Siemens is demonstrating at CeBIT its partnership with Kodak in the area of mobile still imaging. Using Wireless Imaging Network Application (WINAä) software developed by Kodak and Siemens, users can view images stored on a CompactFlashCard on the display of the MultiMobile.
