Gametrac to be unveiled during CES 2004 in Las Vegas
The Gametrac Group confirmed that the first working demonstration of its highly anticipated mobile entertainment device, Gametrac, is to be unveiled at the CES show in Las Vegas from the 8th to the 11th of January 2004 on the Microsoft stand. The working model will show off the gaming device's impressive range of in-built entertainment functions including multimedia messaging and MP3 player.

Visitors to the stand will be able to witness first hand the powerful gaming ability of Gametrac, with three games being demonstrated along with the music player. Messaging (SMS and MMS), including Gametrac's world first multimedia advertising capability - Smart Ads - will also be showcased.

"CES provides the perfect platform for us to unveil, for the very first time, a working demonstration of Gametrac to the public, commented Carl Freer, a Director of the Gametrac Group. We are delighted that Microsoft has allowed us onto its stand and we are sure that anyone visiting the stand will be blown away by the power and functionality of Gametrac."

The Gametrac Group has chosen Microsoft's Windows CE. NET operating system for Gametrac because of its easy-to-use platform technology and rapid development tools. The intention is to maximise the inevitability of growth through convergence between the content-driven mobile device market and Internet protocols.

Set to launch in the UK in 2004, the multi-functional entertainment device offers users a unique experience wherever and whenever they choose. At its heart, Gametrac offers pocket-sized, high quality gaming using Bluetooth and GPRS for multi-player gaming. Additional in-built entertainment functions include a capability to play movies, MP3 player, SMS and MMS messaging facilities and a high-resolution digital camera. It sports a 2.8 inches TFT QVGA colour screen. The device can connect to GSM networks (tri-band) and GPRS.

The built-in Windows Media Player 9 will provide the platform to support full length movies to be available in 512MB SD cards, encoded in MPEG4 format. The device also brings built-in GPS, including Geofence services provided by SiRF.

Gametrac run on an ARM9 400Mhz processor and 64MB RAM, including a 64bit graphics accelerator.
