NEC’s 3G devices e606 and e808 Unveiled

NEC’s futuristic 3G handsets, delivered to the mobile multimedia and communications service 3, developed by Hutchison 3G, for the rollout if its network in the UK and Italy.

Strikingly attractive, employing the popular fold-form design, both the e606 and e808 are dual-mode (2G:GSM/CSD and 3G:UMTS/W-CDMA), enabling users to benefit from a range of compelling 3G multimedia services such as point-to-point video and advanced content download as well as 2G (voice) services. Users are assured of complete mobility when using either handset model, both of which support SMS and MMS. The PDA-style e808, which features a QWERTY keyboard, also offers a mobile email service, making it ideal for business communications.

NEC’s e606 and e808 feature large 65,536 colour displays ideal for Internet browsing and downloading from the assortment of news, sport, and entertainment files available as part of 3′s offering. Both handsets support a wide range of graphic, audio and video file types, which can be downloaded at speeds of up to 385kbps.

Mobile gaming is a key attraction of the e606 and e808, both of which boast Java(TM) (MIDP 2.0) technology and memory of up to 32MB and 64MB, respectively. Once downloaded, games can be played with ease on the colour screen.

Cutting edge camera technology is available on both handsets, each of which has two integrated cameras, one front and one back. With a digital zoom, both handsets are able to take still photography as well as shoot video footage.

NEC’s 3G handsets have USB connectivity, rendering them even more adaptable and useful for those wishing to use them not only for gaming and entertainment but also for business-related communications.

Up to 500 contacts can be stored in the handsets’ phone book, including four telephone numbers and three email addresses per name. ‘Listen and Look Who’s Calling’ is available by way of allocating a specific ring tune to a particular name, and similarly, photos, snapped by the built-in camera, or colours can be assigned to specific callers so that when a call is received, the external LED will flash with that image or colour.

The e606 is available in midnight blue, while the e808 comes in two attractive colours; champagne (e808N) and black (e808S). NEC’s 3G devices, boasting a large range of features and advanced software, are designed to allow users to experience 3G to the full.
