Roger Wireless launches Audiovox SMT 5600 Windows Mobile Smartphone in Canada
UTStarcom Personal Communications Division, formerly known as Audiovox Communications Corp. is making the tri-band (850/1800/1900 MHz) SMT 5600 available in Canada on the Rogers Wireless GSM/GPRS network.

The Audiovox SMT 5600 combines many of the features commonly seen in larger devices into a small, compact form factor.

Some of the key features of the SMT 5600 include Bluetooth and infrared support, speakerphone and advanced out-of-the-box multimedia features, including th new Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, providing audio and video playback experiences with support for secure content, album art, and playlists. The SMT 5600 is the first mobile phone to be certified under the Microsoft PlaysForSure logo program for its compatibility with a wide variety of online services.

With a built in mini-SD slot, users can expand the 32MB RAM to up to 512 MB and store images, video clips, music and other data, all of which can easily be transferred to a PC. It also includes an integrated CMOS VGA digital camera with low-light capabilities, 4x digital zoom and camcorder functionality.

The Windows Mobile 2003 for Smartphone OS includes Pocket Outlook for email and Pocket Internet Explorer for true HTML Internet browsing. It also comes with a Pocket version of MSN Messenger, and Microsoft Exchange Server ActiveSync capability which enables wireless email, calendar and contact synchronization.

The Audiovox SMT 5600 also works with Rogers Wireless' MyMail wireless email service -- a new service launching in April that will be included at no charge for customers who subscribe to any of Rogers Wireless' Data Service Plans. This solution will offer individuals a wireless real-time, non-browser based, and fully synchronized push email, calendar and contacts experience. A secure, behind the firewall, server-based solution also will be available for larger corporate customers.

Rogers Wireless is offering the Audiovox SMT 5600 with introductory price of CAD$299.99 after rebates with a three-year voice and data service contract.
