CeBIT 2003. New technologies and DECT-phones from Siemens
In the first part we’ll told about new mobile phones produced by Siemens. In this article you’ll know about devices, which are not in commercial sale yet; these are devices of the near future. Among them was a paperlike display, which can be just rolled up. This display is rather compact when it is closed and it could be applied to many devices, including PDA and mobile phones. Now only black-and white displays are available, but it is only the first step of the future technology.
The other interesting prototype is a device, which registers the moves of the pen made above the screen; then the information is transmitted to the display.
One more device had a camera on the rear part of it. It showed a combined reality and the virtual world. For example, it captured the surrounding environment and created virtual bees, which could be killed using the joystick.
The last development is the 3D touchscreen. It differs from usual touchscreens, as it is not necessary to touch it. For example, you can just run a pen or a finger over the display and the handset will zoom in on the content, as if you were running a magnifying glass over the screen. This technology can simplify inputting of the information and phone menu navigation.
Siemens also demonstrated a phone aimed to people with poor eyesight. It supports Braille alphabet, besides it could utter dialed and received phone numbers. According to the German broadcast, devoted to this phone, it pronounced words faster than ordinary people used to hear, as blind men have keen ear and could recognize speeded text.
Many revised DECT-phones were also introduced on the exhibition. One could see С100, С150, С200, С250, S100, S150. The simplest model is C100. It could receive SMS messages. Up to 50 phone numbers could be stored in the phone memory. Besides, it has a speakerphone mode. In the whole it is a typical representative of classic series.
The next model – C150 has auto answering feature and all capabilities of C100.
C200 has a calendar, VIP directories in addition to usual memory, folders to keep SMS messages, which could be secured by a password. In response to features it is more advanced phone than C100.
Apart from mentioned features C250 has an auto answering feature. Besides, these models are made in bright colors as they are aimed for home using.
Phones of S-series enable to download own ringtones, set own graphic logos. They combine the best features of C-series and old Comfort phone line.
