Monday September 8, 2003:
The morphing of mobile phone, PDA and portable computer is seeing the release of increasingly powerful pocket-sized, multi-use devices like the Kyocera 7135 Smartphone - a combination phone and PDA running PalmOS4.1 that includes an onboard MP3 player and exceptional data download speeds of up to 144kpbs over 3G networks.
The slim-line clamshell design incorporates a 65,000 colour screen for web browsing and PC functionality - with 16MB of onboard RAM expandable via MMC/SD slot and a 33 MHz DragonBall MZ CPU - can be made more practical via the optional folding portable keyboard.
Download speed makes wireless emails with attachments a reality and the 7135 caters for HTML and other browsers and synchronises with standard email programs.
Additional features include the built-in MP3 player, GPS locator, Infrared (IR) transfer, voice-activated dialling and hands-free speakerphone.
The Kyocera 7135 is now available in Australia and costs AUD$1599. Follow the links below or contact Kyocera Wireless Australia on 1800 50 7000.
Gizmo recently trialled the 7135 Smartphone - stay tuned for our full review in coming weeks.
