CommunicAsia 2004 Part 1

After two years of waiting, Asia's most comprehensive communications technology trade show, CommunicAsia 2004, is back once more. By far the largest show of its kind, the event comprised a plethora of manufacturers and vendors from the communication, enterprise and broadcasting industries. From state of the art special-effects/animation technologies, audio equipments, broadcast and production technologies and equipments to mobile handsets, cables and satellites, CommunicAsia 2004 is the place to be at and to be seen for both branding and exposure. For the first time in the show's decade long running history this year, all three arms of the show will be held under the same roof, occupying the entire Singapore Expo for a one stop seamless exhibition and showcase event.

Besides being a 'showing off' venue, summits were held for companies to actively engage in the various industries' growth and trends and possibly to discuss and explore new frontiers in both the Infocomm products and related services. Amidst the shoulder rubbing and buzzing are what we checked out and archived in digital still pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Singapore's Minister for Information, Dr. Lee Boon Yang was one of the Guests-of-Honor at the opening ceremony of CommunicAsia 2004. Here's a picture of him at LG's showcase booth.

At LG's Booth

Here are a couple of new handsets from LG.

LG was amongst the handful of big players that had a large portion of floor space for their booth to showcase their latest line of mobile phones.

LG C1100 is a compact and lightweight dual-band clamshell (900/1800MHz), weighing in at just 85 grams. This phone features Class 10 GPRS, WAP2.0, JAVA (MIDP 2.0), support for EMS/MMS and a lively 40 chord polyphonic ringer.

The slim G5600 is one of the better looking candy bar handsets around. On top of its embedded VGA CMOS sensor camera, the features of this phone are not much different from the C1100.

OLEDs are rapidly gaining a place in mobile phones' displays. The G7120 features an 8-bit (256 colors) panel for its secondary display and the industry standard 16-bit (65,536 colors) LCD for its primary visual unit. A VGA CMOS camera is integrated into this dual-band clamshell phone as well.

Involved in a MP3 conflict recently, the LP3000 has an extensible antenna, a Megapixel CCD camera and the ability to download music files off the Internet. The two protrusions above the primary display are 3D Stereo speakers.
