Summer Handset Parade on Video
(From the WWJ Team, May 12, 2004)
(You can only see the preview on the GLOCOM Platform)
The Tokyo Business Show 2004 opened yesterday with a light show and pounding music that highlighted Vodafone on center stage. They have taken a beating in the marketplace - and the press - lately over the lack of new handsets, but here are 5 fresh for summer models that should make the critics, and customers, take notice. The V602SH from Sharp would seem to be pick of the litter with its industry first 2x optical zoom camera and huge swivel style LCD screen. The sleeper surprise unit, upon closer inspection, has to be the V401D from Mitsubishi. With it's Super CCD Honeycom 2 mega-pixel camera, and another industry first, a side mounted finger tracing control feature to operate screen scrolling and camera zoom..!!! We were in for another treat afterwards wandering by the DoCoMo booth to see they had just rolled-out the new micro-mini Premini by Sony Ericsson. If you couldn't make it out to Tokyo Big Sight in person then we hope you'll enjoy this quick video clip from our adventure.
