Today at the CeBIT trade fair in Hannover, Germany, Ericsson announced its first mobile phone with colour display, MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) and digital imaging and audio capabilities – T68. This very small, powerful and sleek mobile phone with a completely new look and feel demonstrates a clear trend shift within Ericsson industrial design. T68 is developed for GSM 900/1800 and 1900 networks and will be available Q4, 2001.
T68 has it all. Bluetooth wireless technology that connects it to other devices without cables, GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) for instant and high speed mobile Internet access, a 256 colour display, and the latest and most advanced messaging application – MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service).
MMS is a universally accepted standard that lets the T68 user send messages from a mobile phone with formatted text, high quality images, animation and audio – a very exciting prospect for messaging enthusiasts. The images can be digital photos taken on the spot and sent in realtime to the Web or another mobile phone with MMS. Sending messages, digital images and audio will add a new and exciting dimension to messaging.
T68 is a lot more than voice – it is a new direction and an excellent mobile phone.
