Three new mobile phones in the Philips Fisio line-up offer users a wide choice of mobile communication functions. The new models range from the state-of-the-art Fisio 820 which combines today’s most advanced communication and messaging functions, to the Fisio 120 which meets the needs of consumers in the basic and prepaid market segments.
The Fisio 820 is the ideal choice for mobile phone users who demand today’s most advanced communication and messaging features. It is one of the first mobile phones on the market today that incorporates a large, full-color LCD display, Bluetooth connectivity, advanced GPRS, the ability to receive and store color pictures and graphics.
Also new is the Fisio 620, which incorporates GPRS mobile Internet access, together with convenience features like organizer options, e-mail, voice recognition and recording. Completing this new range is the Fisio 120, which is targeted primarily at the rapidly growing prepaid market, offering an outstanding combination of easy operation and useful functions.
True pocket-size phone
All these new models are among the smallest and lightest mobile phones. For example the Fisio 820 has a volume of only 77 cc and weighs only 85 grams, plus integrated antenna, making it a true pocket-size phone. This phone’s advanced features are underlined by a sophisticated, high-class design in a choice of satin-finish Sahara (light gold), Crystal (light blue) and striking, high-gloss Mars (red) colors.
Large color display
A distinctive feature of the Fisio 820 is the large 256-color display (112 x 112 pixels), which can show up to 9 lines of text, or 150 characters. With this advanced phone consumers can send and receive messages or attachments incorporating color pictures, text and melodies. Fisio 820 also offers consumers more opportunities to personalize their phones. For example, consumers can select their favorite images such as wallpaper and screen savers. They can also create and modify their own images using the special ‘image companion’ software that comes with the phone.
GPRS mobile Internet access and Bluetooth connectivity
The Fisio 820 incorporates the fastest, most advanced GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) technology available today for mobile Internet access. GPRS offers more then 4 times faster data transfer than the standard GSM network, which is ideal for sending e-mail attachments such as color pictures and graphics, and downloading files from the Internet.
In addition, the Bluetooth technology built into the phone enables wireless transmission of data signals between various Bluetooth-enabled electronic devices (such as phone, headset, PC and PDA) located within 10 meters of each other. For example, this allows the phone to be synchronized with a PC or PDA without the need for a connecting cable, or a call to be answered via the Bluetooth headset without having to take the phone out of a pocket or bag.
Voice Command / Voice Dial / Voice Message and Record function
The Fisio 820 offers up to 40 Voice Command or Voice Dial features to make the phone easier to use and to increase safety. Voice Command enables users to instruct the phone to perform specific functions, such as browsing the Internet, simply by saying e.g. ‘access the Internet’. Voice Dial enables consumers to call a specific phone number simply by speaking the name of the person to be dialled, rather than physically dialling the number. And the Voice Record or Message function allows users to record a conversation or reminder messages of up to a total of 30 seconds.
Long operating times between recharges are ensured by Fisio 820’s talk time of up to 5½ hours and standby time of up to 400 hours or more than 2 weeks from the standard 700 mAh Li-ion battery.
Fisio 620: ultra-compact size and stylish personal accessory quality
The Fisio 620 is targeted at users who want a mobile phone with significant extra quality and features. This model offers a smart, elegant design that meets all the wishes of today’s mobile phone users for ultra-compact size and stylish, personal accessory design quality. In addition to GPRS mobile Internet access, Fisio 620 incorporates numerous convenience features including a built-in organizer with a smart phone book, plus PC synchronization and a built-in fax/data modem. Making the phone’s information and messaging functions even clearer and easier to use, it incorporates a large 8 lines graphic display.
It also provides many ways for users to personalize their phones, including a selection of exchangeable front and back covers available as accessories, a choice of five built-in screen savers, downloadable melodies and games, and the ability to customize the phone’s alarm tone with either a voice recorded message or one of the melodies stored in the phone.
It also has true pocketsize dimensions (73cc/85 grams), with an integrated antenna for an extra compact design. Fisio 620’s sophisticated styling, with a choice of distinctive Storm Black, Silver Blue and SoftSkin Blue (a softtouch varnish) colors, underlines the phone’s advanced technology and features.
Fisio 120: easy operation and useful functions
Completing this new line is the Fisio 120, which, with a weight of just 95 grams and a super-compact, easily pocketable volume of only 79 cc meets the needs of today’s consumers in the basic and prepaid market segments for the smallest, lightest possible mobile phone. The attractive ergonomic and small shape makes it easy to use and hold in the hand. This stylish model has a full graphic display of 4 lines, and is available in a choice of three distinctive colours: Storm Black, Whale Blue and Opal White.
Allowing even more personalization, a range of different covers allows users to customize the phone’s appearance to match their own preferences. Fisio 120 also offers the possibility to download melodies. Among its useful features offering additional convenience for the user are a Vibra calling alert for a discreet warning of incoming calls, clock and alarm functions with display even in idle mode, and a built-in calculator and Euro converter.
