Sendo unveiled the latest addition to its consumer range of mobile phones - the S300. The new S300 series is built on the successful S200 platform that has been selling successfully into network operators in Europe, Asia and, most recently, the Americas. The phone incorporates technology and features that are easy-to-use for voice and text messaging, ideal for the first time user.
Commenting on the introduction, Ron Schaeffer, Head of Product Strategy and Planning at Sendo, said, "We've built a solid footing in the consumer phone market with the S200 series of phones. They have proven performance and appeal, especially for first time users. Sendo has become a phone provider of choice, particularly for those operators who are engaged in customer acquisition programs. The new S300 brings a refresh to that program. Later in the year we will be adding GPRS and WAP to this segment of the market to offer higher revenue opportunities to our customers."
The dual band GSM phone shows a new and smaller design, weighing 90 grams, with a volume of 79cc and offering up to 130 to 300 minutes talk time and up to 120 to 260 hours of standby time.
The S300 offers an easy-to-use and customisable interface for downloadable ring tones, icons and screensavers, which can be assigned to menu headers, the phonebook or the idle screen.
This new series of phones come in a variety of different colours and offers a range of common features including four games, 40 pre-set ring tones plus ten for downloadable tones, T9® Predictive text input, SMS Chat and an alarm clock.
The S300 is expected to ship in the second quarter of this year in a number of European countries.
