South Korean-based mobile phone maker Curitel Communications Inc. said it has developed the world's first mobile phone that allows wireless connections between personal computers, home appliances, and electric switches.

The phone incorporates "Zigbee" technology and will reportedly enable users to activate electric switches and control other electronics devices from a short distance, according to the company.

Curitel said the phone will go on sale as soon as the so-called ubiquitous computing era arrives. "Mobile phones will emerge as the core device in the upcoming age of ubiquitous computing," said Han Mi-hyang, a Curitel researcher. "Curitel aims to become a leader in ubiquitous computing by developing various mobile phones equipped with technologies such as Zigbee and Bluetooth." (Yonhap)
