IFA2003, the last part

First part. History of the exhibition, cars and even planes>>>

Second part. Phones at IFA'2003>>>

Many amazing devices, not connected with the thematic of our site have remained beyond the scope of this article. For example, at one of the stand one can see a remote control without batteries. They were substituted by a small handle. Just turn it a little bit before using the device. In my opinion this thing is ridiculous but somebody invented it.

Binoculars combined with a digital camera is more interesting. 1-Megapixel camera allows taking good images. The picture looks as youve used binoculars to discern it. Examples of these images were also shown on the stand. Received images are saved either in the memory of SD-card or binoculars memory. Synchronization via USB cable is available.

Lets return to the phones. Sharp presented Sharp GX10i which had new design. It is called Ferrari Limited Edition. This model wasnt produced till now, its just a demonstration of new capabilities. You cant buy this phone today.

Phones aimed to Japanes market were ver interesting to Europeans. For exmaple, J-SH53 is equipped with 1-Megapixel camera, which allows to read barcodes on the goods. It could play back video, supports Java and mp-3 player. This phone has an impressing color rendering. The picture is so bright and attractive that you begin to doubt whether it is real.

The other model has not only barcodes reader but also an integrated OCR (letters recognition) and special SD/MMC-cards slot. This model is called SH505i.

Once again after CEBIT Sanyo showed UMTS-model SUP-700. The main features of this phone are the following: two cameras, 3D-sound, which surrounds the listener.

Several CDMA-models were also demonstrated, for example this one is aimed to Chinese market.

Prototype of the company is more interesting, it opens the conception of phones module building (there are base and additional blocks). In this case (the device is named as Alviss) connection of a base block and additional ones should be provided by bluetooth. Among additional blocks one can find player, TV, display, keypad, digital camera and mobile phone.

Nice idea of Sony to hang up many various earphones on a kind of a tree attracted much attention of the visitors.

Several stands were just pretty decorated.

I paid attention to one hostel depicted on of the Sony Ericssons advertising posters. Unfortunatly I couldnt find it in reality, so, I am not sure that it exists.

The same kind of silicone hostels were offered by small company presented on the exhibition. You could buy them for 10 Euro. In my opinion they look nice but I am not sure that they are strong and reliable.

At last I would like you to look on these tiny digital cameras. In reality they can be used as only child's toys because they have very low resolution, but the price is also very low for such devices.
