Mitsubishi is incorporating the NVIDIA GoForce 2100 technology into its latest i-mode mobile phone, the M341i.
The NVIDIA GoForce 2100 handheld multimedia processor is an ultra low-power, and designed to implement video and camera functionality on the handset LCD display. The GoForce 2100 offers VGA camera compatibility, supporting QVGA resolutions ideally suited to mobile phone displays, and it provides an onboard JPEG encoder, which handles captured images and compresses still pictures in resolutions up to VGA resolution (640 × 480).
By delivering the low-power hardware acceleration, the GoForce 2100 can provide mobile phone and PDA consumers with rich multimedia content and extended battery life.
The Mitsubishi M341i is the first European phone to take advantage of the GoForce 2100 technology, and boasts 400 hours standby time, thanks to the ultralow-power consumption of the design. In addition to incorporating a digital camera, the M341i has a 310,000-pixel, 1.9-inch 262K colour main screen and a 0.9-inch outer screen.
