Connect to your Music and Calls in Style with Philips GoGear LUXE

The all-new clip-and-click Philips GoGear LUXE digital audio player with integrated Bluetooth connectivity

Switch between your favourite tunes and phone calls instantly with a single click whenever you are on the move with the Philips GoGear LUXE, the clip-and-click digital audio player with integrated Bluetooth connectivity that is designed to look as good as it sounds.

The Philips GoGear LUXE takes mobility and sound performance to a whole new level by incorporating FullSound™, Philips' patented audio technology that remarkably restores sonic details to compressed digital music, in a stylish clip design and ultra mobile form factor that fastens just like a fashion accessory. Whenever there is an incoming call on your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, the caller's ID and number are displayed on the LUXE. A single click on the LUXE then switches instantly to the call, keeping you connected at all times even when you are enjoying your favourite music tracks.

Forward-looking design that never goes out of style

The Philips GoGear LUXE features a jewel-like facet that shimmers when it catches the light and makes a stylish yet timeless statement. Clip it on to your favourite pair of designer jeans or the season's must-have handbag. Whatever it is, the Philips GoGear LUXE comes in sparkling red and silver to complement your fashion hue.

"Today's modern women play multiple roles in their daily lives," said Jessica Cheah, Manager for Customer Marketing, Philips Consumer Lifestyle. "They lead active lifestyles, are always connected, and never forget to look good and have fun at the same time. Philips GoGear LUXE is their perfect companion reflecting their fashion sense and personality even as it plays their favourite songs and connects their calls seamlessly."

No compromise in sound quality

Form and substance go hand in hand. Featuring FullSound™, the Philips GoGear LUXE raises the bar for MP3 playback by bringing back CD quality audio and natural dynamics to digitally compressed tracks during the conversion process, so that there is no compromise in sound quality, even for portable tunes.

With up to 100 hours of standby time and 10 hours of playback time, you can switch to the shuffle mode for lovely surprises, or simply tune in to the FM radio to keep yourself au courant – whatever your mood takes you.

Always ready to wear, ready to go

No software installation is required for song and data transfer. Simply drag and drop the items onto the Philips GoGear LUXE via any Windows-based PC, and you are all ready to go. With up to 2GB of storage capacity, there are always enough songs to keep you sufficiently entertained.

Price and availability

The Philips GoGear LUXE digital audio player with integrated Bluetooth connectivity will be available at all authorised Philips dealers and major consumer electronics retail outlets in Singapore from November 2008, with a recommended retail price of S$139.
