Panasonic launches Symbian Series 60 mobile phone
Posted on 26-Feb-2004 07:57 | Filed under: News



Panasonic Mobile introduced its flagship model for 2004, the X700 smartphone during the 3GSM World Congress. The compact digital camera phone, with video capability, comes in clamshell design and supports the miniSD card. The X700 uses the Symbian OS and the Series 60 Platform. Shipments across Europe are scheduled to begin Autumn 2004.

Jim Marion, President of Panasonic's US Wireless Design Center, responsible for developing the X700, says: "The X700 will appeal to the increasing number of users requiring compact and stylish mobile phones for their business, as well as personal, needs. Supporting the miniSD card and Symbian OS, the X700 smartphone allows users to view and edit presentations and documents, which can then be seamlessly connected to other AV equipment. In addition, the X700's digital camera, video, email and multimedia messaging capabilities make this model one of the most technically advanced mobile phones on the market."

The X700 supports a series of pre-loaded applications. Users can view and edit native Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents on their handset. The miniSD card provides additional memory to store these files and by using the miniSD adapter can easily link these to other Panasonic AV equipment. In addition, an imaging application, that is also included, enables users to edit photos taken with the handset's camera. Using the X700's Java capability, the user can download further applications, polyphonic ring tones and games.

The X700 is Panasonic's first handset to use Symbian OS and the Series 60 Platform. The X700 is also one of the first clamshell smartphones to offer a full colour sub display and picture CLI (Call Line Identification).

The phone has a built-in VGA digital camera, photo light and 65,536 colour TFT display screen. The X700 also supports MMS, email and Bluetooth.
