showed off several new models of clamshells. For example, CDMA models
got a 16-tone synthesizer, which the GSM ones are deprived of. They
also unveiled the 7000 GSM device which will probably be available
by the end of the year. It has a 40-tone synthesizer - the sound
is amazing. Besides, it has a color display, supports packet transmission
(4+2) and can transfer melodies and images.
I don't find the CDMA clamshells very interesting in design.
Next to the LG's stand were a lot of Asian companies dealing in accessories.
Many of them demonstrated bluetooth hands-free sets like that on the photo.
It costs approximately 70 euros.
The Nokia's stand was, as usual,
crowded, though there wasn't anything extraordinary.
Sagem arrived here with several new models - the most interesting was
MX5 with its color display and MMS support. On the whole, the phone is
a bit weak, the display isn't very clear, the menu is looped, but it's
possible the navigate it only in one direction. The list of functions is
huge, but let's see whether the phone is able to get onto the market as
the business of the company is worsening. Although their booth was located
in Hall 26 which is flooded with visitors and journalists there wasn't
many people around the stand. The company hasn't prepared any stuff either
for journalists or for guests. The rumor has it that Sagem is going to
leave the European market and will be just a local manufacturer, i.e. its
phones will be available only for France.
Gemplus decorated its stand with Beeline cards :)
Peiker offers interesting hands free solutions for the auto market.
You can see, that the phone is put in the base and can be connected to
an external antenna via cable.
The company also produces auto-oriented telephones for several major
This very simple phone is made as a bluetooth hands free solution which
supports all phone functions including voice dialing.
Today I also passed by several computer companies.
Compaq got rid of cables and showed
off some solutions connected with operation in wireless networks. Besides,
it was allowed to try the iPaq PDA.
They also demonstrated solutions from other companies in connection
with the Compaq's PDA, for example, a GPS receiver with a navigational
Other products were of little interest that is why I omitted them.
