SAMSUNG Presents : ´Beautiful Technology´ Mobiles

Three new mobile phones for the fashion-savvy debut at CommunicAsia 2007

Singapore, June 19th, 2007 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a leading provider of mobile phones and telecom systems, today unveiled three new mobile phones with luxurious, stylish designs and innovative features, targeted at Southeast Asian consumers who want eye-catching mobile phones which do not compromise on high-tech multimedia features.

The SGH-E950 is a powerful 3-megapixel camera phone equipped with an improved, unique touch navigation user interface, while the SGH-E840, with its minimalist and futuristic design, boasts a super slim frame at just 10.6mm and a glossy. mirror-like surface. The SGH-J600 comes with an affordable 1.3-megapixel camera, and comes in a variety of vivid, lively colours.

One of the common features available in all three phones is the Touch Sensitive Keypad. Unlike ordinary keypads, Touch Sensitive Keys respond to just a light sweep of the fingers, and the back-lit keys automatically illuminate in blue when you slide up the phone.

“Integrating beauty and technology in a mobile phone is something Samsung has always prided itself on. I believe that our latest portfolio of fashion phones - the SGH-E950, E840 and J600 - presents our users a selection of mobile phones which truly epitomises the phrase ‘beautiful technology’. I am confident that with their striking designs, ease of use and uncompromised performance and functions, Samsung’s latest fashion phones will appeal widely to our Southeast Asian customers,” said Mr. Geesung Choi, President of Samsung’s Telecommunications Network Business.

While the SGH-E950 is reminiscent of the elegant design and luxurious surface material of the successful SGHE900, it features improved design and functions. Equipped with an enhanced touch-panel input method, the phone’s icons change with the function displayed in the main screen to maximize ease of use. It also adopts newly-developed graphical user interface along with more powerful multimedia features ? an enhanced music features, 3.2-megapixel camera and more efficient email and internet access, and hassle-free file downloads. Its luxurious metal-finish is something consumers will lust after.

The slimmest slider in the world, SGH-E840, is a gem of a handset. With is super-thin frame of 10.6mm and astonishing mirror display, the SGH-E840 stands out on every aesthetic level and satisfies the fashion-savvy’s exquisite taste and sense of style. Hidden beneath the slider is an encased touch keypad, while the metalfinished, tempered glass exterior boasts flash and substance.

The SGH-E840 also features the latest NF v3.4 internet browser - an embedded Web micro browser specifically made for handset use. Versatile and powerful, it displays Web pages on a vertical, scrollable screen, letting users zoom in and out from 25% - 100% for easy viewing.

The SGH-E840 is available in Ice Silver, Candy Pink, Topaz Gold and Noble Blue.

The first thing you notice about the SGH-J600 is its intense hues that are enhanced by its glazed surface design and chrome metal trim. Consumers can choose from a selection of mystical colours available in Dark Gray, Purple Blue, Cool Silver and Coral Pink.

Enjoy multimedia freedom to capture your favourite photos and tunes with the SGH-J600’s 1.3?Megapixel, 4x digital zoom camera that shoots high quality colour images and a multi-format music player - MP3, AAC, AAC+ and e-AAC+, and an external memory slot (MicroSD).

The E950 will be available in Southeast Asia from July, while E840 and J600 have been launched this month in select Southeast Asian markets.

LG KE850 Touch Screen Mobile Phone

This new mobile phone design has reportedly recently won an award with the International Forum Design in Germany and some photos had surfaced, but no real specs, release date or price, yet.

The mobile phone in question called the KE850 sports a new design from LG that we really like. Instead of having a keypad that has to be slid out or opened, it has the keypad right on the display as a touch screen. Touch screens like this have had in the past, and will probably continue to have, their share of trash talk from those who really don’t like finger prints or smudges on their screens, along with others that have “fat fingers” and have trouble narrowing down to one item on the screen to press. Overall this looks to us like a promising design.

Everyone likes having additional screen space on their smart devices without compromising the overall size. If multi-purposing the touch screen as the keypad and then having it disappear to allow larger viewing of pictures, files, and video and games gives us more room then who are we to argue?

Since we really can only go by the photos at this point, there is not too much to say other than we are really looking forward to hearing more about this touch screen phone from LG in the coming year. The looks are similar to other mobile phones from LG in the Chocolate line, and maybe this will be a new addition?

iPhone Rival Launched by LG, PRADA

The PRADA phone by LG (KE850) was built with the same attention to detail and quality that would be seen in other products from PRADA, and the price is in line as well. The PRADA phone will be available to customers in UK, France, Germany and Italy in late February, but of course luxury (and touch screens) don’t come cheap. The phone will retail for around 600 Euros (about $775 USD), which is almost $200 over the expected cost of the high-end iPhone.

LG boasts the “world’s first advanced touch interface” which has glowing icons on the LCD interface as a menu which also sounds very similar to the Apple iPhone. Aside from the capacitive touch screen, the PRADA phone from LG also plays music, videos which take advantage of the widescreen display, and can view multiple document types, including Powerpoint, Word, Excel, PDF and text files. At only 12 mm thick the fancy mobile gadget also supports EDGE Tri-Band (900/1800/1900) communications, has a 2 megapixel camera, GPRS and Bluetooth.

A USB connection will allow the device to act as a mass storage device although the PRADA phone only has 8MB of internal memory, which really pales in comparison to the iPhone with it’s 8GB of storage. The PRADA phone also has an external microSD slot to expand the memory which will certainly be needed to watch any significant amount of video.

The LG KE850 PRADA phone will also be available in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore in late March and in Korea the second quarter of 2007, but there are no current plans for a US release.

Samsung Ultra Smart F700

The Samsung F700 is Samsung’s newest addition to the Ultra family of mobile phones. The F700 features a 2.78″ color touch-screen display, a 5 mega-pixel camera with auto focus, and support for 7.2 Mbps HSDPA.

The Samsung F700 has a touch screen that utilizes a “Drag and drop” interface for navigating menus. The touch screen allows you to control volume, play lists, brightness of screen as well as other controls.

The design is a slider phone style and has a QWERTY keyboard hidden underneath the screen. The QWERTY key pad implements VibeTonz technology which allows users to feel the buttons through responsive vibrations.

Touch screens are marking a recent trend in mobile phone interfaces. The F700 is the latest phone to incorporate a touch screen design. Other touch screen phones include Apple’s iPhone which was announced in January, and LG’s KE850 “Prada” handset.

The Samsung F700 will be showcased at 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona next week.

Verizon unveils flashy new phones for the holidays

Verizon went ahead and unleashed four new phones all at once targeted at the fall shopping season trying to get a share of AT&T’s iPhone dollars. The new lineup includes the Voyager and Venus from LG along with the narrow Samsung Juke and the Blackberry Pearl sporting EV-DO.

The headliner of this Verizon release party is the LG Voyager looking very similar to the iPhone from the outside with a large touchscreen on the face. Once you get your hands on the Voyager you’ll see that it’s a little bulkier than the iPhone and that touchscreen face actually hinges open to expose another display inside that faces a large QWERTY keyboard, hence the thickness. The Voyager also has V CAST Mobile TV, a microSD slot and a modest 2 megapixel camera.

The LG Venus has similar features as the Voyager with a slider design and a touch screen on half of the display. It doesn’t have the full QWERTY keyboard however and uses the normal phone keypad. The Venus carries a little extra style coming in colors of black or pink, has a 2 megapixel camera and is microSD expandable to 8GB.

Samsung brings a more unique design to today’s Verizon lineup with the Samsung Juke. The Juke has got to be the first we’ve seen in the U.S. “flick” open which is a welcome change amidst all the sliders and clamshell designs. Going for just $99 the phone is very narrow, not much wider than a stick of gum, and comes in colors of metallic navy, teal and red. It’s designed as a media phone although it doesn’t have EV-DO to download media through Verizon. It does have a USB port and 2GB of internal memory. A couple things that make this little number stand out even more is the on-board GPS with VZ Navigator, a VGA camera with Nightshot, a speaker and Bluetooth stereo.

Last but not least Verizon gets their hands on the Blackberry Pearl with EV-DO which isn’t found on Pearls from anywhere else. Like the other phones it also has VZ Navigator GPS and has a 3.5mm mini headphone jack.

No word for sure on the release dates of these four, but they all should be available for the holidays this year and likely by Thanksgiving (if they want to sell any).

Google announces Android and the Open Handset Alliance

This morning Google had a phone open phone conference and made the much anticipated announcement that they along with 33 other companies are starting the Open Handset Alliance. The first and main project of the newly formed alliance is called Android, an open development platform for mobile handsets. The ultimate goal for Google with this is to overall make a better, more usable phone with more features where consumers will benefit, and of course to show advertisements on it where Google will also benefit.

Eric Schmidt was present on the call leading things off, with a number of other captains of industry including Paul Jacobs of Qualcomm, Peter Chou from HTC and Ed Zander from Motorola. The members of the Open Handset Alliance include some big names like Google, HTC, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sprint, T-Mobile, eBay, Intel, NVIDIA and many others. Some notable big names we’re not seeing on the member list are Microsoft, Apple, AT&T and Verizon.

The Android platform is built on Linux and is open source. Companies will be able to develop their own custom applications to run on mobile devices with Android when the SDK is released on November 12. Actually mobile handsets running Android will be released in the second half of next year.

This announcement does sound promising for consumers. An open platform would definitely be cool to where you can get the applications you want or even build your own for your phone. But, what many were really looking for was something a little more “gadgety”; something really cool looking that we could get our hands on. Well it looks like those rumors of a sweet-looking, highly functional Google Phone are not going to die with this announcement.

Gizmodo picked up on an article today from Forbes that Google still has something called the “Dream” phone in the works. The Dream was designed as a prototype, which we had heard rumors of before, to show off to mobile phone makers of what a phone running Android could do. Reportedly the prototype looks similar to the iPhone measuring 3×5 inches, and has some cool touch-screen technology along with a number of productivity and entertainment focused applications. While today’s announcement of the Open Handset Alliance and Android aren’t quite there it does look like it is bringing us a step closer.

Verizon turns Venus pink

Verizon Wireless and LG today added a new color to their Venus mobile phone: pink. This new LG by Venus phone is priced at around $200 after rebate and contract.

The pink Venus by LG is the same as the current model in Verizon’s line up except for the color. It is a slider design which provides you features like a two-megapixel digital camera, microSD expandable memory and support for mobile Web content. It can also play music files from formats like MP3, WMA and AAC.

Other features of the pink Venus include Bluetooth support and a lower screen with touch navigation. This phone should be available now.

LG Viewty camera phone now in Dark Silver

LG launched the Viewty in Europe just less than three months ago back in November and has already sold more than 550,000 of these camera/phone combos since. After some research the folks at LG have come to the conclusion that having just a single color available for the Viewty just isn’t enough and today they are announcing that they’ll be bringing a number of new color choices to market starting with this Dark Silver model. Aside from the new color the mobile device is basically the same aside from an improved jog wheel to make navigation just a little easier.

The LG Viewty is a mobile phone combined with a 5.0 megapixel camera, 3-inch touch screen display, image stabilization, auto focus, 120 frames per second video recording and a built in media player not to mention the ability to make and receive calls.

The new Dark Silver color is available in addition to the original black color and LG didn’t give a time frame or specificities of the other colors but did say they would be available sometime this year. We’re guessing a red Viewty is not far off.

LG-KF700 offers three times the input fun

LG Electronics is showing off this week a number of interest cell phones for consumers. One which seems to be getting a lot of attention in particular is the upcoming LG-KF700, which will be available perhaps sometime this year in the United States after first hitting Europe.

The LG-KF700 offers up three separate input methods - three-inch touchscreen display, alpha-numeric keypad and a scroll dial. The latter is interesting in that it lets you scroll through six user-selected features by controlling a virtual dial on screen. It is also a media strong horse, offering MP3/MP4 playback and a three-megapixel camera, among other features.

Triple Your Efficiency with LG-KF700

February 11, 2008 - LG Electronics, a worldwide technology and design leader in mobile communications, today announced the launch of its LG-KF700, a new multimedia phone that combines three input methods to create an amazingly intuitive user interface and provides instant access to features.

The world’s first phone with three separate input methods, the LG-KF700 itegrates a 3-inch touchscreen, alpha-numeric keypad and Shortcut Dial. Each of these input methods is assigned to the tasks at which it is most efficient, making LG’s highly intuitive interface possible. With its user-optimized navigation, all of the phone’s functions and features are instantly accessable.

“Our consumers told us that they wanted a phone that had plenty of multimedia features, but doesn’t take a long time fiddling with menus to figure out. We created the LG-KF700 based their insight,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Internal research showed that a phone’s multimedia features often lay dormant if they are hard to access. On many phones these features are hidden deep in menus, requiring too much time and effort to find them. The LG-KF700 eliminates these endless menus with its intuitive interface and multiple input methods.”

LG has already established itself as a leader in phones with touch technology, and the LG-KF700’s 3-inch full touchscreen provides easy access to features and its wide aspect ratio makes it perfect for watching movies or browsing the internet. From the phone’s main screen users can flip through several handy widgets, including a calendar, scheduler, and memo pad, with the swipe of a finger. The large touchscreen also means that the phone can provide an adaptable on-screen interface, rather than tying users to a fixed, preset button layout.

The Shortcut Dial on the back of the phone quickly scrolls through six user-selected features by controlling a virtual dial on screen, rather than wasting time digging through menus. This can be done at any time, from any application, not just when the phone is idle. The Shortcut Dial can also be used to scroll through web pages or e-mails, adjust volume and perform other functions for which a wheel is naturally best.

Most of the new touchscreen phones currently available eliminate some formerly universal features like the alpha-numeric keypad. LG consumers said that consumers still wanted this particular feature, not only for its familiarity, but also because it simplifies the process of making phone calls and is excellent for typing text messages. For this reason, LG incorporated a slide-down alpha-numeric keypad into the LG-KF700.

Used together, the LG-KF700’s input methods become even more powerful and efficient. When browsing the internet on the wide touchscreen, the shortcut dial zooms in and out on websites. When sending text messages, the alpha-numeric keypad provides all of the letters, while frequently used symbols are readily available on the touchscreen. These symbols change based on users text messaging habits.

One of the LG-KF700’s powerful multimedia features is a full featured Web browser that provides full access to Google Search, Blogs, Gmail, Maps and Youtube. Support for HSDPA 3G networks* makes web browsing extremely fast and makes other features like video telephony possible. Other features include an MP3 player, MPEG4 video player, 3.0 megapixel camera, Bluetooth connectivity and more. All of these multimedia features are packed into a slim and stylish package with a clean, minimalist look.

LG will introduce the LG-KF700 at the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2008 on February 11 in Barcelona, Spain during its press conference. The phone will be available in Europe in mid March and will become available in other markets in the months following.

Samsung AnyCall Haptic with 22 types of touch

Samsung is jumping in the market joining the ranks of LG, Apple and others who have put out mobile phones featuring a touchscreen interface with the new AnyCall Haptic SCH-W420 mobile phone. Touchscreens have been all the rage for the past year or so, and already there are enough that companies have to come out with some unique features to help one stand out from the other.

To the AnyCall Haptic, Samsung has added some vibrating tactile feedback to the touchscreen. In fact, they’ve added 22 different types of feedback to your fingers from the screen, depending on what you’re doing with the phone such as dialing a number, moving objects around or spinning a dial. Whether or not your fingers are able to distinguish between 22 different type of vibrations is another story, but at least some feedback helps quite a bit if you’ve every tried to quickly dial a number on a flat touchscreen.

In case you were wondering, the name ‘Haptic‘ is actually derived from a Greek word which means “pertaining to touch”. The AnyCall Haptic phone is set to launch in South Korea only at this point, but could possibly make its way stateside later on, but hopefully for a more reasonable price. South Korea will see it next month with a price tag equivalent of around $800. It also features 3.2-inch widescreen, 2-megapixel camera, Internet browser, Bluetooth and a terrestrial digital TV tuner.

AT&T to offer live mobile TV in May

On Thursday AT&T said that it will start offering live mobile TV service from MediaFlo in May. It will be branded simply “AT&T Mobile TV.” The new service will operate on two handsets, the LG Vu and the Samsung Access. Subscribers will have access to eight channels of live TV and get two exclusive channels. Pricing information should be available in May when the service launches.

The LG Vu has a touchscreen and 2 megapixel camera, the Access has a smaller display and a 1.3 megapixel sensor. Both have Bluetooth and 3G data. But the main point is the TV aspect. Productivity is about to go out the window.

AT&T Mobile TV now available

The new Mobile TV service from AT&T that we first talked about back in March is now available starting this week for customers in 58 select markets in the United States. The service from AT&T in conjunction with MediaFLO streams live TV with over 150 different programs to mobile phone customers.

The service initial will work with just two specific handsets offered from AT&T - the LG Vu and the Samsung Access. The Vu is an interactive touch screen phone that will display video and web pages, has a music player, a 2MP digital camera and Bluetooth. It goes for $299.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a 2-year contract.

The Samsung Access also has a large video display without the touchscreen, a music player, stereo speakers and Bluetooth as well. The Access goes for a little less at $200 after a rebate and a two year contract.

The Mobile TV service itself from AT&T runs for as little as $13 a month for the low-end plan that brings just four channels, or for another $2/month you can get unlimited Mobile TV viewing. Another plan for $30/month brings the unlimited Mobile TV, mobile video and mobile web browsing.

The service brings content from CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon and is launching it in multiple markets including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, Seattle and Washington, D.C. among others. You can search for availability in your area and find a programming guide of shows and times available on the AT&T website.

Verizon announces three new tasty LG mobiles

Verizon Wireless is out today with three new innovative LG phones which should do some fun shaking up of the cellular provider’s line up when they debut in the next month or so. They are the LG Dare, LG Decoy (pictured) and LG Chocolate 3.

The phones, said Verizon, will offer their customers “touch-screens, music and more.” We’ve put after the jump the snippets of the Verizon press release which briefly detail the new models.

LG Dare
From the sleek, slim appearance, to the all touch-screen operation, the LG Dare will be the talk of the season. Loaded with multimedia functionality, this 3G V CAST-capable phone has VZ Navigator(SM), V CAST Music, and a 3.2 megapixel still and video camera that automatically adapts to low or unevenly distributed light for better quality pictures. The photo editing tool lets customers turn their photos into personal masterpieces with features that include borders, landscape and a fun doodle feature right on the screen. Customized photos can be uploaded to a social networking site directly from the phone. The intuitive and graphical contact list allows customers to find the right number with the flick of a finger for speedy texting, e-mailing and phoning. Favorite contacts can be reached with a drag and drop photo interface. Additional information on the LG Dare will be available later this month.

LG Decoy
A dream for the multi-tasking consumer, the glossy front and satin back LG Decoy is the world’s first phone to have a Bluetooth hands-free headset integrated into the design. The headset flips into the back of the device for easy transport and charging. The slider phone also sports a five-way directional joystick for easy navigating through all of Verizon Wireless’ multimedia features such as V CAST Music and V CAST Video. Customers planning to hit the road this summer can download VZ Navigator on the Decoy to get visual and audible directions to thousands of destinations, locate businesses and other points of interest, get maps of a location, and share directions with others. The Decoy will be in stores on June 16.

LG Chocolate 3
Chocolate gets even sweeter this summer, and the latest iteration of this iconic mobile music phone is even more stylish and functional than its predecessors. The new LG Chocolate 3 trades in its slider form factor for a slim flip style that brings with it the quintessential music player complete with control wheel on the outside and an FM transmitter to play music through a car stereo. The new Chocolate is the perfect MP3 player for listening and accessing more than 3 million songs from Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Music library. It has dual speakers and Bluetooth for wireless stereo sound, and inside is a Gigabyte of memory to store the latest tunes. Add in the option of expandable memory with an 8 GB microSD(TM) card, and customers can pack thousands of songs onto this new version of a rock solid winner. The new Chocolate has a 2.0 megapixel camera, so customers can capture the best of summer fun to share with friends. The phone also supports V CAST Video and ESPN MVP, making this marquee mobile music device more than just another phone. The LG Chocolate 3 will be in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and available online in July.

Via debuts tiniest motherboard yet

Via CEO Wenchi Chen revealed a business card-sized motherboard billed as the "world's first industry-standard form-factor for PC/phone convergence," at Computex today. The "mobile-ITX" board measures 3 x 1.8 inches -- half the size of Via's "pico-ITX" form-factor -- and runs Linux or Windows XP Embedded.
Spread the word:
digg this story

Via in late April promised that "ultra-mobility" would be the focus of its eighth-annual Via Technology Forum, this year co-located in Taipei with the Computex trade show. The company's recent announcements related to mobile computing include the launch of the Pico-ITX form-factor, as well as the launch of several high-integration processors and chipsets designed to reduce board area and cooling requirements in small battery-powered devices.

The mobile-ITX board that Chen demonstrated this morning appears to be based on a 1GHz "C7-S" processor -- apparently a standard Via C7-M shoe-horned into a 9 x 11mm package. The chip had not previously been announced. The mobile-ITX board also apparently uses an "S" (small) version of the CX700 integrated north-/south-bridge chipset. And, it appears to have an on-board DC-DC converter. Additionally, according to Via, the board includes a CDMA baseband processor chip, suggesting that the mobile-ITX board could be used as the basis for x86-compatible smartphones.

Motorola phone compared to mobile-ITX

According to a brief item at EpiaCenter, Via's mobile-ITX board will be available with 256MB or 512MB of RAM soldered on-board, and will run Linux or Windows XP Embedded. Even an embedded version of Windows Vista may be too much for the little board, however, a Via spokesperson admits.

Chen stated, "This prototype Mobile-ITX gives a glimpse into the future of ultra mobile devices and the real convergence of computing and communications. Yet this is only the start. We see the platform shrinking still further, with ever richer blends of functionality, that will truly make ultra mobility the normal way of enjoying our content and our communications."

PRLog (Press Release) – Apr 18, 2008 – The Software is designed to do ALL the developer work for the end-user so he or she can focus on content, marketing and promotions. MobiPress allows users to fully brand their applications and control all the content distributed. Users can sell music, games, videos, articles, news, information and entertainment through their branded mobile applications. “By allowing the mainstream world to dive into mobile design and development without developers and expensive tool kits will crack the mobile industry wide open and forge a new sense of what’s possible in the mindshare of everyone who has been held back by lack of technical knowledge and lack of easy to use tools. This tool makes mobile applications just like a toaster. Just put in your media and out comes your application.” Says Moses Johnson, creator and founder of I recently decided to add some patented technology to the application so users can build mobile applications they can use to control their televisions and computers like a remote control. We also have some plug-ins for building mobile applications that control your Nintendo Wii console. Our goal is to have over one million applications built by our users by September 2008. We have a robust freeware version of MobiPress so now no one is excluded from getting into the mobile game. and for those who want to sell content and run subscriptions, the options are at their fingertips.” So far MobiPress Studio is available in three editions. Freeware, Publisher ($149), and Enterprise ($899). When asked why the price for their simplified IDE is so inexpensive, the reply is quick and assured. “We think everyone wants to be on the third screen. They just don’t want to have to learn a bunch of code or pay some guy in some strange country to build it for them. Once the door is open the people will come in. We are banking on that”. The next question seems obvious… What about advertising and marketing and who are you guys using for mobile payments? The answer here seems more thoughtful and careful as they think this one over… “We have not decided on which mobile payment services we will endorse for our users yet. We are still in talks and we want to make sure that the ease and cost free nature of our application and service don’t become compromised by a fancy payment gateway that our users can’t afford. Our users definitely want to make money with their applications, it’s up to us to make that an easy experience. So that’s why the MobiPress Studio not only builds branded mobile applications users can control and update remotely, it also gives the user a high-end digital storefront for the web so they can promote their mobile creations in a polished fashion with little effort. We have a huge growing gallery of user created applications. We believe we will be the worlds largest mobile applications provider before the end of the year.” It all sounds almost to good to be true. I would not believe it if I weren’t sitting here with my own mobile radio application with my face on the interface looking back at me. MobiPress goes on sale on monday for windows PC’s.
