Sendo confirms the release of Sendo X
Sendo announced its new multimedia smartphone, the Sendo X.

Hugh Brogan, Sendo's CEO, stated: "We believe that the Sendo X has the best combination of advanced multimedia and internet capability of any phone available on the market today. True to Sendo's business model, we have made the Sendo X extremely customisable for both the operator and the user. Innovations like the Sendo Now! screen mean that both network operators and consumers can now adapt the phone to the way they want to use it."

It is first and foremost a compact, stylish high-end small and light GPRS tri-band phone in a real phone form factor using high quality materials such as aluminium in its finishing. In addition to its great form factor, the Sendo X incorporates a number of Sendo enhancements to the Symbian OS and Nokia Series 60 software.

Series 60 licensor, Nokia Mobile Software's Jukka Riivari, Director of Sales added: "Within less than a year of our licensing agreement Sendo brings to the market an impressive smartphone. With the Sendo X, Sendo also leveraged the flexibility of the Series 60 Platform in product differentiation by adding many unique innovations to the phone, all packaged in a very light, small and stylish product."

"The Sendo X demonstrates that Symbian OS is the ideal platform to enable customisation for mobile operators," said David Levin, CEO of Symbian. "Sendo has exploited the powerful capabilities of Symbian OS and its strong support for open standards to bring to market a compelling offering for both operators and consumers."

The phone is very small and light (120 grams). It also brings a new menu syste called Sendo Now!, a customisable, personalisable, and expandable home screen, allowing users easy access to network operator value added services. The Now! screen also allows users to have quick access to their favourite web pages, documents and to get easy access to their frequently used applications on the phone, giving them the ability to get more out of the Sendo X more often.

The Sendo X features a 176x220 TFT display with up to 65,536 colours. It has a built-in camcorder function with more than half an hour of recording of video and audio. Sendo has incorporated new mobile graphics technology, GraphiX. The GraphiX engine ensures faster and smoother playback of leading mobile video formats. The Sendo X also includes a RealOne Player with H.263, MPEG 4 and RealVideo formats, which allow users to watch film clips, music videos or news.

The VGA still/video camera offers 4 x digital zoom and an integrated flash with automatic red-eye reduction. By utilising the GraphiX co-processor, the Sendo X boasts a smooth real-time viewfinder. Sendo has also added enough memory for the user to store up to 1000 high quality photos in the phone. In the integrated Photo Album application, photo editing features have been included.

The phone is a triple band GSM phone with GPRS. It also has built-in Bluetooth, infrared and USB connectivity. The Sendo X can support a full range of browsing options, including HTML 4.2, Frames, WAP 2.0, XHTML MP and Security (SSL and WTLS). Internet pages are resized and laid out on the fly in a friendly view that completely eliminates the need for horizontal scrolling.

Internet compatibility supports up to six email accounts and a full PIM (including email) can be synchronised with a PC over Bluetooth, infrared and USB using Sendo PC Connect. It supports SyncML as well.

The phone comes with 64 MB of Flash memory, of which approx. 32 MB is free to use. The phone also supports hot-swappable MMC and SD cards, offering nearly unlimited memory expansion possibilities.
