Press Release: AnyDATA Corporation, a global leader in the design and manufacture of wireless communications devices, announces two leading-edge Windows smartphones for carrier distribution, the ASP-318 and the ASP-518. Both devices are loaded with multimedia features that provide consumers with a rich entertainment experience on AnyDATA smartphones.
The ASP-318 is a low-cost and affordable Windows Mobile smartphone for cellular subscribers, such as students and enterprise workers who previously may have only considered a mid-tier feature phone. The AnyDATA smartphone utilizes the media-rich Mediatek MT6516 application processor that is designed for entry-level smartphones. It provides a rich multimedia experience for cellular subscribers on existing 2G GSM networks.
The ASP-318 smartphone features Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, a 3.2-inch color touch screen, GPS to support navigation and LBS applications, an accelerometer, dual SIM, EDGE/GPRS modem, a micro SD slot for memory expansion, and an FM radio. The ASP-318 also has a 3.2 megapixel camera with built-in flash, autofocus, and macro-mode to focus on close-up images.
Based on its recent partnership with SRS Labs, AnyDATA plans to further enhance the ASP-318 with SRS TruMedia, which improves the audio performance with remarkable depth and clarity. The ASP-318 operates globally on quad-band GSM 850/900/1800/1900 Mhz bands. The AnyDATA ASP-318 will be commercially available in 2nd quarter, 2010 and will be marketed as the iMedia smartphone.
The ASP-518 is a 3G dual mode smartphone currently marketed by China Telecom utilizing the well-known Phillips brand. The phone has a striking design with tapered edges that look sharp and assist in gripping the phone. The ASP-518 smartphone features Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, GPS navigation, a brilliant 3.2-inch WVGA screen, WiFi, 4 gigabytes of memory, as well as a micro SD memory slot.
The ASP-518 is optimal for travellers or subscribers with two phone numbers since it supports dual SIMs and dual standby. The phone operates simultaneously on 3G CDMA EVDO Rev A networks as well as GSM 900/1800 networks. The smartphone also has dual cameras, namely a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera for taking high-quality photos and a front-facing camera to enable mobile video-conferencing. The ASP-518 features the MSM7627 3G processor from Qualcomm.
The ASP-518 will also be equipped with superb audio that utilizes SRS technology. Audio performance has become a significant purchasing factor as consumers shop for more sophisticated phones. In a recent MarketTools study conducted in November 2009, 92 percent of survey respondents indicated the quality of sound is important or very important when purchasing a mobile phone.
“We have listened to our carrier customers and provide smartphones that can boost subscription revenues and reduce churn,” said Dr. Soon B. Shin, CEO of AnyDATA. “Our carrier customers desire high-end and entry-level smartphones that they can brand and provide a compelling multimedia experience for smartphone applications.”
AnyDATA will be demonstrating these world-class smartphones along with other products such as 3G USB modems, 3G modules, an Interactive Display Appliance (IDA), and a 3G connected camera security system in its booth at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The AnyDATA booth number is Hall 2, booth C102.
