The Audiovox SMT5600 includes the Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition software for Smartphones and is the first Windows-Mobile-based Smartphone featuring Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, including a new media experience that enables the seamless transfer of media from a PC running Windows XP.

The new Windows Media Player 10 Mobile provides enhanced audio and video playback experiences with support for secure content, album art, playlists and more. Also, with the AT&T Wireless mMode Music Store, customers can find, browse, listen to and purchase digital music tracks from a library of approximately 750,000 songs all right from the handset. Built in cooperation with Loudeye Corp. and Microsoft, the mobile music store is seamlessly integrated with the PC, so digital music tracks are downloaded to users' Windows-based PCs and billed automatically to their monthly AT&T Wireless statement or credit card.

The SMT5600 is also the first Windows Mobile-based smartphone with integrated camera in the United States. The Audiovox SMT5600 features the CMOS VGA digital camera with low-light capabilities, 4x digital zoom and camcorder functionality.

The Smartphone also comes with the latest in personal information management (PIM) functionality, such as over-the-air access to Outlook Calendar, Inbox, and Contacts, phone users can easily transfer their information to their mobile phone. In addition, AT&T Wireless customers will be able to receive access to corporate e-mail on the Audiovox SMT5600 through Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and third-party middleware providers.

The Audiovox SMT5600 is available in other markets with brand names like i-mate Smartphone3 and Orave SPV C500. The product was developed under the codename Feeler, by HTC.

It also supports Bluetooth and infrared, and is a tri-band (GSM 850/1800/1900) phone. AT&T Wireless is offering the Audiovox SMT5600 for US$199.99 after rebates with a two-year voice and data service contract.
