The Japanese company, Panasonic, made a great impression at CeBIT with two models which are revolutionary in their own way. On the one hand, there is the small GD 67, rich in functions and with a 256 colour display. This is the first cellular phone in the middle/low range to have 256 colours. On the other hand there is the GD 87, their most important model. More than a modern GSM this seems to be a FOMA (3G) telephone, produced for the internal Japanese market, where UMTS is already a reality.

Considering its features, the GD 87 does not have exaggerated dimensions. It has a bivalve design, which is decisively unusual for Panasonic’s GSM production. There are two characteristics that jump out at you. The first is the viewfinder of a small digital camera on the outside of the terminal. The second is the wide TFT display revealed when the telephone is opened. The display can view a good 65,000 colours and can also work as the viewfinder for the digital camera. As much as we can define this most important model by this Japanese manufacturer, MMS messaging is fundamental. By the end of the year, the period in which the GD 87 should come to market, this messaging system will also be a reality in Italy. There is no doubt that you will be able to take a photo and send it directly to an e-mail address or another terminal that supports MMS messaging, like with the Nokia 7650 or the Sony Ericsson P800.

Naturally, the camera and display allow you to set a photo taken by the GD 87, or another photo of your choice, as a background. A function that will be appreciated is the ability to associate photos to contact numbers. In this way, when a specific contact is calling, the photo associated with the number will appear on the display. The features of this marvelous device are completed with GPRS technology, WAP microbrowser in version 2.0, SyncML for synchronising with the PC or PDA via IrDA, and the wonderful polyphonic ring tones (at 16 tones) that Oriental manufacturers seem to particularly like (see the recent production of Panasonic and NEC). Of course there is viva voice and an LED on the outside of the phone that allows you to know who is calling without needing to open the cellular phone.
