CommunicAsia Part 3
Our last bit of walkabout yielded this third and final installment of our CommunicAsia 2005 articles, covering handsets from Chinese manufacturers, Sanyo batteries and IC chips and customized models from NTT DoCoMo. There are even a few pages set aside for showgirls and some very interesting celebrity characters. Be sure to check them all out!
Imitating an earpiece that's shaped after the inexplicably expensive Vertu phone is the F1000. This executive looking model is the company's first WiFi handset (802.11b) and with that, the F1000 is capable of executing VoIP calls.
The G1260 is UTStarcom's attempt at ultra slim and stylish handset. From the side, it's profile is only 10mm thick and its mass is pretty astonishing as well, weighing in at just 60g.
Available in white, red or silver, the G3200 utilizes colorful light as a third mode of incoming call alert. The unit is a petite clamshell that weighs only 73g.
Decapitate the stubby external antenna of the G3200 and you'll end up with the G3300. With the antenna removed, the G3300 was a better fit in our palm and its smooth texture actually gave us a rather good first impression of its construction.
Polyphony fidelity is the highlight of the GW200, a WCDMA and GPRS/GSM dual mode handset with an impressive 72-chord polyphony ringer. It also supports playback of MP3 files and BREW applications.
On another side of the display pillar are CDMA handsets of UTStarcom.
