CeBIT 2002: Day 2 / Part 3

March 20, 2002



LG 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 companies.

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

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 system.

Other products were of little interest that is why I omitted them.
