Just before selling parts of Symbian stake Motorola launches its Symbian based 3G video mobile phone
Motorola revealed its new Symbian powered A920. It will be sold in the UK, Australia and Italy for use on 3G networks operated by 3.

Features include:

  • 208 x 320 16 bit color screen
  • 640x480 integrated camera
  • MP3 playback
  • Java
  • Version 7 of Symbians UIQ (like P800)
  • GSM/GPRS/UMTS radio
  • 900/1800/1900/2100Mhz
  • 148 x 60 x 24mm
  • 212 grams (48 oz.)
  • SD memory expansion

    The revolutionary Motorola A920 sets a new standard for the mobile industry and brings enhanced functionality to customers of 3’s video mobile network. A mobile phone, video and still camera, a PDA, an MP3 player and gaming capability have been combined into one product.

    The handset was jointly developed by 3 and Motorola, exclusively for the 3 video mobile network.

    With this new handset 3 customers will be able to:

    Make real time video calls to friends, family or colleagues via a digital, built in video camera. Great for sharing memories or special occasions with other 3 video mobile users
    View music videos, movie trailers, sports or news clips at near broadcast quality
    Find the nearest café, restaurant, shops or cinema, thanks to 3’s location services and the new Assisted Global Positioning System (AGPS) capability of the A920
    Listen to music using the phone as a personal stereo with an integrated MP3 player and a built in speaker as well as separate headphones
    Make or receive calls at the same time as accessing 3’s content areas and downloading video or audio clips
    Use the phone internationally. Customers can make calls (including in North America via the tri-band operation)
    The A920’s full colour screen is large enough for users to fully appreciate videos, photos and video calls. It boasts a clarity and resolution (65,000+ colours) of better quality than ever seen before on a mobile phone.

    The touch screen uses a stylus pen and handwriting recognition technology. The menu system is navigated via icons on the touch screen, as well as dedicated ‘hot buttons’ for the most popular applications such as, ‘home’ and ‘3 services ’. When browsing, the ‘forward’ and ‘back’ options operate just like on a PC.

    The A920 runs on a version of the open operating system, Symbian OS v7.0 and incorporates the latest pen-based user interface by UIQ. Applications can be downloaded, such as games based on Java and C++, from 3. This will allow consumers to update their handsets regularly with new applications and content.

    The Motorola A920 can also double up as a separate, hand-held gaming console. Flip the phone on its side and use the console-style game controls, including a five –way navigation key to play Java-based games.

    An expansion memory card is also available for up to 256 extra Mb of space for multimedia files. The phone also offers more basic mobile phone functionality such as text and picture messaging.
