DBTEL...continued (Part II)

Besides being a Tri-band phone, the 8038C basically has the same features found on the 6588C, with the exception of this phone having a hefty phonebook storage space of 500 contacts.

DBTEL's higher end D5 is a Tri-band phone supporting GPRS and a 40-chords polyphonic ringer.

We probe around to get the exact model of this game phone but with no success. According to one of the booth personnel, this is a prototype game phone…

…and this was our quick on-the-spot game phone comparison with Nokia's Ngage QD.

The J1 is DBTEL's high-end candy bar phone that has quite a list of supported features. These include GPRS, WAP, JAVA, IrDA, a 40-chords polyphonic ringer and a CMOS VGA digital camera. A built-in FM radio and a handsfree speakerphone are standard on this model as well.

Another compact clamshell designed for women is DBTEL's J2. You can find a horoscope and calorie calculation software in the phone on top of its CMOS VGA digital camera and 64-chords polyphonic ringer. External or sub-display is made up of a two-zone OLED visual unit.

The J6 has a 1.3 Megapixels CMOS digital camera embedded into the top flip. It's closely identical to the D5, except it comes with JAVA support and a 64-chords polyphonic ringer for which the D5 does not possess.

Featuring the same two-zone OLED sub-display is the J7. This model supports GPRS, WAP and JAVA. On-board features include handsfree, a 40-chords polyphonic ringer with two stereo speakers and a CMOS VGA digital camera aided by a flash LED light for close up shots under poor lighting conditions.

The J8 is essentially an improved J7 with a 64-chords polyphonic ringer and an OLED sub-display capable of pushing 16-bit of colors when most manufacturers are still pushing OLED displays at a lowly 8-bit (256 colors) version.

The M7 is DBTEL's multimedia clamshell device that's capable of playing MP3 and MPEG4 files. Both internal and external displays are 18-bit TFTs capable of delivering more than 262,000 colors. A 500 slots phonebook, 64-chords polyphonic ringer with two stereo speakers, FM Radio and SD slot will quickly sell itself should we see this model on display here.

The main differences between the M8 and M7 are the 16-bit OLED sub-display and 1.3 Megapixels CMOS digital camera on the former handset. The whole string of features supported by the M7 can be found within the specification sheet of the M8 as well and should position the M8 as a hot seller too.
