SvyazExpocomm 2003. Brief exhibition guide or all in one bottle. Part 2

Part 1 >>>

On the stand of VK Mobile it is possible to see current models CG107, VG207, to examine them closer. Under the glass there is also a prototype of the far future, a conceptual model, in my opinion, it has interesting design, and what else is necessary for concept model?

V300G model will appear in the middle of June in the Russian market, it has an opportunity of external digital camera connection, plus the functional stuffing is rather rich. To find out more about this and other models of the company it is possible in the article, devoted to this mark.

At the stand of Samsung there is an expanse. The quantity of models, which can be examined, as they say nearby, turns ten. Here is already selling Samsung V200, and also Samsung X400, Samsung P410 for the first time shown on CEBIT. The reviews of these devices are ready, and you can read them in the near future, we shall not concentrate attention on them. Here are some photos of 410.

100 model is unusual for the company; this is classical designed device, equipped with color screen, plus with standard set of functions. The price allocates it from the model line, in the middle of June when it appears, it retail cost will make about 130 dollars. Rather competitive model which offers good functionality for little money. In the future it will be the hit of sales.

There is also Samsung E400 at the stand, its review is already available at our site, but it is necessary to go independently for impressions. There are some perspective developments, but all of them are under the glass, to examine them close is impossible.

As a bonus visitors can play with the model, which participates in Matrix.Reloaded movie. The device is without charger, it's impossible to switch it on, and it is a pity. The opening mechanism is curious, it's enough to press on lateral keys, and the top part will be put forward.

I've watched Matrix.Reloaded especially in searches of long scene where the phone is shown in various plans, but I've not found it, the device appears for some seconds and that's all. We'll look, what will be about the official premiere, but I doubt that the movie will be remade. On the other hand, such product placement has already played for positive role for Samsung Company, so the minimal time of phone presence on the screen does not play a role.

We pass to Siemens' stand, under the glass we see Siemens A55, SL55, M55, all of them will appear in sale already in the near future. It is impossible to twist in hands the phones so to satisfy the interest it is necessary only with contemplation.

In the next show-window is presented all new DECT-line, it will appear in Russia in the middle of July, the prices will change from 120 dollars for simple model of -series, up to 160-170 dollars for the senior models. To find out about differences of phones and their opportunities it is possible in the report from CEBIT, we won't repeat.

At Alcatel's stand all is briskly, here are shown some new models at once, here is budgetary Alcatel OT 320, and also Alcatel 535, 735. Two new models constructed on the classical Alcatel's platform, are Alcatel 331, 332. The first will appear in the market in the beginning of summer, this model reminds in something Alcatel 525, but thus it is positioned in lower segment. It succeeds Alcatel 310. The second model has all same functions, plus the color screen displaying up to 4096 colors. This device will appear only in September to tell the truth, the price promises to be low. Among real differences from 331 model it was possible to find absence of wap-browser. However, there are live samples of all devices at the exhibition, except for 332 model, so you cannot see it with your own eyes for the time being.

Sad news concerns to model Alcatel 531, the representatives of the company have finally confirmed, that it won't be delivered to Russia, for this reason the deliveries of Alcatel 535 will begin so soon. By some measure such step is justified for Russia, as the ODM-model made by Mitsubishi, excels among typical devices from Alcatel.

At Nokia's stand you can try your game forces in games on N-Gage, in my presence the console was occupied by one of visitors for long time, the others had to look only through his shoulder and sigh.

It is interesting to look at Nokia 3300 which should appear in the market in the beginning of summer, this is a niche decision focused on youth, however, exactly the youth was interested by it.

At the stand there is also all current line of devices, but they can be looked in quieter conditions and in usual communication stores.

LG has pleased, at the stand all model line fro this year was shown. So, LG B1300 will appear at the end of May, its cost will make about 100 dollars.

LG G5450 differs from its analogue LG G5400 (the review is in corresponding section) with the absence of the external aerial, the device looks extremely attractively, the model is successful both by the form-factor, and by functionality.

In June will also appear in sale LG G5310, its review we'll publish next week, now here are some photos. The cost of this model makes about 240-250 dollars.

LG G7030 will appear in the beginning of summer, the price range for this device makes about 320-340 dollars.

To familiarize with all novelties and their characteristics it is possible in the separate article or in descriptions.

At LGs stand it is necessary to turn special attention to Korean CDMA-phones, the decisions look unusually. So, it is interesting the external OLED-screen inscribed in mirror surface.

Here is one more curious model.

At the stand of Meridian Telecom it is possible to look at some models from Sendo, Maxon. All devices are old enough, any new models has not been presented.

As a whole that's all, that is possible to look at the exhibition in the main pavilions, tomorrow we'll tell about the rest of the exposition.
