Panasonic Mobile is showing the X300 mobile phone during the CeBIT 2004. Designed with a one-push pop-up screen, the X300 is the first phone of its kind. The tri-band phone also features a 65K colour screen, video record and playback capability, polyphonic ring tones, MMS and built-in camera.
Mr Masatoshi Kitade, Managing Director, Panasonic Mobile Communications Europe, comments: “The X300 is an exciting addition to Panasonic’s product line up. Its innovative, pop-up screen design transforms a high-quality mobile phone into a digital camera. With the capability to shoot short video clips as well as still shots, the X300 is at the cutting-edge of mobile technology. We are proud to be the first to offer a phone of this design, continuing our tradition as pioneers in the industry”.
With its one-push, pop-up screen, the X300 makes taking pictures and shooting video clips simple. The built-in VGA camera has a handy self-timer function on this new device. Photos or videos can then be played back on the crystal clear, pop-up 65k colour display.
The phone supports GPRS and MMS, allowing users to send photos and video clips to a PC or other compatible phone. The phone also comes with 20 40-polyphonic ring tones, a calendar, calculator, games and wallpaper downloads.
The new X300 should be available from Autumn 2004 in Europe.
