NEC America, Inc. has launched its first digital camera phone, the 525 High Definition Mobile (HDM), in the U.S.
Available through AT&T Wireless sales channels, the 525 HDM -- the second of NEC's 500-series of mobile phones available for AT&T Wireless' customers -- adds an embedded digital camera and a 4,096-color external LCD screen.
NEC is releasing the 525 HDM in conjunction with the enhancement of AT&T Wireless' mMode(TM) service. With one-touch access to mMode and advanced browser features like xHTML technology, NEC says its customers will have a richer mMode experience while also easily downloading games, wallpapers, and ring tunes.
The 525 HDM features a 100K, 2X digital zoom embedded camera and a 4K-color external-LCD screen. In addition, the device is a GSM(TM)/GPRS quad band mobile handset that delivers international communications capabilities. It comes equipped with a 40-note polyphonic ring tune chip from Yamaha, providing users with access to ring tunes with a high-quality audio.
The handset also uses advanced technologies such as DoJa(TM), a version of Java(TM), created specifically for the mobile environment by NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and Sun Microsystems.
